Told you I was older than you, or did I say richer?

I am in the midst of the last week of my 30s. Is there something that one can do in his thirties that he cannot do in his forties? If so, let me know fast so I can do it. Someone recently told me one thing - what was it - oh yeah, see. The film department secretary told me that her eyesight declined when she turned 40. The possibility of an eye-test crossed my mind while I waited all morning at the DMV. I did not find out if I needed one though because I had to leave before my number was called.

I think you will lose all understanding of the TV show "thirtysomething". You better have a marathon to catch up.

When you turn forty there is a new set of fashion rules you should follow. Hair should be above the shoulder, steer away from blonde hair color and go for "silver", wear a brighter lip shade and lower the hemline of your skirts. Bold patterns are a no no, as well as trendy styles.And always remember skincare, skincare!!!

I never watched "Thirtysomething" while in my thirties. I remember hating it in my teens (or whenever it was on). It could have that been I just wasn't old enough.

Hello Johnathan...

Approaching my 40's as well, I guess the first thing to ask yourself is this,"is there anything you haven't done, that you'd like to do?"

They say that in your 40's wisdom begins to set in because we have been around long enough to understand and process the past and all that we have learned to this point. And that you can share your own style of wisdom from your own journey.

Goals are still attainable.
Style and life "speed" changes I know for myself that I have grown up personally and I Pay it Forward.

Richness comes in the lessons we learn and the widsom we share with others.

Its all about the journey, who we meet on the road and what we learn while we walk together.

Cheers

Jeremy

dear jon,

yesterday i picked up my new glasses. for 24 years i have worn the same perscription. but yesterday i picked up a new pair with a new perscription. really the same, except for....bifocals.

that's right. bifocals. as you know, i am 41.

Three years ago, I went to pick up my glasses and they were trifocals. I skipped the bifocal thing altogether and went right to "progressive lenses". And I was 43. And my 50 year old husband has like, a dozen pairs of glasses; none of which are quite right. The eyes may have it, but they loose it at 40.

Oh, did I mention that one of the joys of giving birth at 43 is that in order to see your beloved offspring, you have to hold the child at arms length and look through just the right area of your "progressive lenses". Poor thing.
