I’m sure a woman is less inclined to share their age.. but here is the thing
Im 40 next year
The BIG 40
I want to say its no biggie..
But is it
I remember my mum taking me to the ‘health food shop’ when my dad turned 40, I remember her spending a fortune on ‘supplements’ as a joke for my dads big day, it was ‘hilarious’.
Let me tell you I’m not laughing now
Can someone explain how I got to anywhere near 40 already?
I put it down to having only just in the last 3 years got the body I should have had, I’m still living it up and enjoying this new body like Im 25 to be fair
But here is the thing, after a series of losses Im also left with the crappy concept of recognising a life half done.
A recognition of how quickly these 40 years have whistled by, and how the next 40 years will make 80 – yes EIGHTY.. FFS, thats just insane
But also of the responsibility I have to keep myself healthy and well for my children.
To check myself on a health basis and keep myself in the best condition I can, I been lucky/insane enough to ignore all that stuff so far but those days are behind me.
I want to make sure I’m here to see my children grow up, get married themselves and with a bit of luck make me a grandparent
Its not meant to, its a recognition that I need to take care of myself, forewarned is forearmed.
In these cases ignorance is NOT bliss, ignorance is stupidity.
Well bring on these next 40 years and who knows, the 40 after that, Im ready willing and able to take whats coming?
I owe that to my girls
