I don't know where everyone is, but I imagine some lurk, some don't use the sight and some might not be involved with the team anymore. I haven't been involved for a long time.

There is nothing wrong with being in our 40s! I am 44 now and enjoy life. My kids are in 10th and 7th grade, so I know that they won't be home too many more years. I am busy going to all their activities, working, and helping my husband on our farm. Life is short, you never know what the next day will bring, so we need to tell our families we love them and enjoy our times with family and friends!

Success is just around the corner for the person who refuses to quit.

I echo everything everyone else said. I am sillier because I care less about what others think. Not in a disrespectful way, more of a 'not following the herd' kinda way. Toots are more funny than embarassing - at home, mind you. NOOOOO tooting in public!! lol My husband thinks he lives in a SNL episode. We laugh a lot. It's great.

I thought when I turned 40 (I'm 43 now) I'd have such a hard time adjusting to being 'middle-aged'...lol. But I LOVE being in my 40s. I feel like I finally know who I am, what I want and the older I get I care less and less about what other people think of me...coming from someone with the confidence level (or lack thereof) I had growing up, it feels quite liberating...Being in your 40s is great!

I'm with Earthsmile ... I had no regrets turning 40 (I'm now 48). 40 was the year I packed myself up and moved to Tennessee to be with my SO that I had been talking to in a Yahoo Chat room! For me, age is just a number. I'm happier, more confident and more content in my late 40's than I've ever been in my life ....

I just turned 40. I never thought I'd would look so forward to it. The closer that I got to my birthday the more I really began to feel the excitement. I always heard that age brings wisdom but I think it brings a level of clarity too. I finally began to understand what truly mattered.

Well, I had more confidence in myself. It was the beginning of feeling ok to be the real me. I felt free and daring. I did take stock of my life, and realized I had more positive moments than negative. It was better than my 30th birthday. I didn't cry when I hit 40. emoticon emoticon Celebrate!!!

Allow light into your heart and home everyday.
