There are a lot of things I love about being in my 40′s – 46 to be exact: Finally understanding once and for all that cellulite creams don’t work, being at peace with my technological ineptitude, at long last not caring if I suck at singing. There’s a freedom that comes in knowing my 20′s and 30′s are behind me, and that those decades aren’t coming back. Certain doors have closed but all I need to do is keep moving forward to walk through the ones that are waiting to open. Maybe that last sentence was a little cheesy but who cares? I’m 46, I don’t have to prove myself to you! Benefit!
There’s knowledge that comes with age. Like the knowledge that I’m never going to have thin legs. Never. Never ever. Even if I diet down to 117 pounds which I’ve done so that’s how I know. But with that knowledge comes peace.
Sex is better in my 40′s. I’m not as worried about what the other person is thinking, which in turn allows me to take my time and enjoy the ride so to speak.
Sleep is better at 46 because I no longer have any infants waking me up every hour and there are none in my future. That’s a young woman’s game (you know, like early 40′s). Except in Italy where they get pregnant in their 60′s.
But being 46 doesn’t mean life has stopped or even slowed down. I hosted my first talk show at 46. I’m writing a new book, planning trips and learning to work my new iMac. Hell, I only discovered Twitter in my 40′s so obviously the best is yet to come. Plus, I quit drinking in my 40′s so now I’ll remember it all!
