The 5 questions you’re still answering

j0385755 A few months ago we launched The Women at Forty Five Questions Challenge. We asked women at 40 to answer 5 questions that would help tell us about regrets, plans for our 40th and more. The catch – you had to answer in 3 words or less. The questions are:

  1. Most exciting thing you did/plan to do at forty?
  2. Biggest regret?
  3. The thing(s) you’re most proud of?
  4. The monkey on your back you can’t shake?
  5. Finish this sentence (ok, so technically it’s not a question) – If Three 6 Mafia can win an Oscar, I can…

And we’ve received dozen of answers ranging from “skydive naked” to “who the heck is Three 6 Mafia?” It’s been a while since we posted your responses. So here are a few of the most recent…

Most exciting thing you did/plan to do at forty? I plan on graduating with my Master’s degree in my cap and gown.
Biggest regret? I actually don’t have any.
The thing(s) you’re most proud of? I am a self-made woman. I pulled myself up by my bootstraps and joined the Navy when I was 17 years old and found a wonderful career in the government.
