I can’t believe I’m forty (or almost forty) and…

Thinking woman Yesterday, our guest contributor Jenny talked about the cycle of repeating our mistakes. Her cycle involved constantly moving in and out of relationships. She used the analogy of shampoo instructions – lathering, rinsing, repeating – to describe it. Her post got me wondering, good or bad, what am I still doing at forty that I never thought I would be? I’ve mentioned a major one before – struggling with my weight – but at forty, I can’t believe I still watch and enjoy cartoons, bite my nails on occasion, am single, and sometimes care a little too much what people think.

What can’t you believe you’re still doing at forty? Is there a habit you thought you’d have broken by now, a man you thought you’d have gotten over, or something or someone you can’t believe you’re still waiting for? Share it in the comment section, on our Facebook page or tweet it at twitter.com/womenatforty. We’ll share some of your best comments in a future post!

    ….still feel like I am 20. I can still run, skip, jump like I did back then. Of course, when I actually execute its not as easy or pretty as I remember.

    LOL Mary! I soooo feel you on the execution not being as easy or pretty! After engaging in activities that I used to do frequently, these days I feel and hear it for days – knees poppin', ankle lockin' and back asking me “WTH were you thinking?!?!” Thanks for sharing.
