Everyone looks forward to their birthday. Let’s face it, turning forty is quite a milestone and worth a celebration!
A fortieth birthday is when you take in the fact that half your life is over. And as soon as that realization sets in, it can be tempting to despair over all that has gone wrong. But don’t. Celebrate reaching here.
Celebrate the bizarreness that has been life. Celebrate the fact that you have half a lifetime left to try something new.
Look at the lighter side of things. Joke with your friends and family about this big milestone you have hit. Don’t worry about the laughter lines wrinkling up your face. Laugh more.
Your fortieth is here. It is time to welcome it with all the laughter in the world.
