Turning 40 Again

My reflections on turning 40 years old (which I’m doing again this week) were published in 2011 on the popular website, Turning 40.

Two years later, my story remains one of the most popular they’ve published. It is still one of the “featured” stories at the top of the page and has been read by nearly 10,000 people.

In the article, “Turning 40 as a Sounding Board,” I meditate on how turning 40 seemed, to me, to be more of a sounding board than a milestone. It includes quotes, words of inspirations, poetry, even a little bit of alternate history. You’ll laugh (if you’re 20). You’ll cry (if you’re turning 40). Hop on over now to read my reflections. (On second thought, walk slowly and carefully—you don’t want to put out your back).


You can read my thoughts on turning 40, or watch Heidi Klum talk to Ellen about turning 40. But which do you think will be more interesting?


Go directly to my article—a lot of people have turned 40 since Monday!
