40 is nothing!! Or maybe that is because age has never meant that much to me. I'm 45 and it doesn't bother me one bit!! I have friends that went into a panic when they turned 30, 40, 45, 50 and so on; the ones I am closest to are the ones that you would never guess their age by their actions and they never thought anything of getting older either. As they and I say, "It isn't how old you are..........it's whether you enjoyed life and learned anything in those years."

I am 39. Born in 1954.

That is my story, and I am sticking to it.

39 was Jack Benny's story, too, wasn't it? Hee! Hee!

Clearly, there are those among us who are math challenged!

I'm the big 40 but it doesn't bother me. I thought I'd freak when it came around and for many years before I said I was going to go off by myself and stay at a hotel and buy a big bottle of wine and hide out. The time came and it wasn't any big deal. I guess because after losing mom and dad so close I realized another year older is another year I'm here on this earth with my family and friends. Besides I only feel like I'm about 30. Hey and when I reach 50.......I'll be considered Vintage and I absolutely love vintage :)

Heh, it's not bad. Everyone makes 40 sound awful. It's not!

I'm a proud 46 and my significant other - he and I recently reacquainted after 25 years- just turned 60. We're still hobbling around, you will too

I will be 49 on Sally Field's next birthday. I never feel old unless I think about the fact that my daughter is 27 and my grandkids are 8 1/2 and 5 1/2!

I never really could understand people saying they are younger than they are. I would rather people think I am a young looking 49 than to think I'm a really old looking 29-year-old! Fortunately I got my mom's good Swedish genes and look younger than I am. Even when she died at age 60 she looked like she was in her 40s.
