It’s a milestone!
It’s all downhill from here.
It’s just a number.
It’s a turning point.
I’m not sure quite what it is but I do know that, subtly, the approach of today has been in the back of my mind for the last year. However, in the same way I don’t hold any sway over New Year Resolutions, I’m aware that this is just another birthday; it really is just a number.
Ahhh yes, of course there was a but!
Turning 40 does feel different to previous birthdays. I can’t quite put my finger on why though and I’m aware it might just be coincidence as this birthday is coming around the time other changes in my life have gathered pace, both in my personal and professional life. Who knows.
I’m now 40 (right as this post was published as it happens).
