Happy Birthday to me.

Age is a question of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter. ~Leroy “Satchel” Paige

I was minding……in the lead up to this birthday I minded a lot. I’ve had a few twitter chats about it and I realised how ridiculous I sounded.

I need to remember that the whole point of this blog was to follow my journey through my 40’s and that includes the downs as well as the ups, but for now I need to be up. Birthdays should be a celebration of your achievements and not a mourning for years gone by.


So I will continue to surprise those around me that discover my age and use my 41 years wisdom to guide my children, support my friends and enjoy my job and stop moaning about it. It’s an inevitability of life and I’ve decided to embrace it!

So, should I remain The40yearold for a decade on twitter or change my name every year, starting today with The41yearold?
