What to expect in your 40s?

Graying? Erectile dysfunction? Anything good?

A sense of self worth. Financial stability. Good friends. Travel.

Very good, better than my 30s not as good as my 50s and now 60s.

A useful set of skills, professional and social.

Romance if you want it and want to work at it.

The foundations of financial security.

A sense of what’s important and what’s not.

Knowing who you are.

At the top of the road and looking into the steep decline.

The forties were great for me, ushering in financial and professional stability and a house, relationship, and two dogs. They didn’t end like I expected, since I turned 50 in the summer of 2020. But even with the craziness since then, the 50s have been really great. You stop worrying about others, accept limitations, and chill out.

Becoming invisible 🫥 in the bars and clubs.

Hate to be Debbie Downer, but in your 40s, your body starts paying for the sins of the 20s. So, if you haven't been taking care of yourself, definitely start now. Metabolism changes, so your diet will need to also. On the good side of that is that I've started developing tastes for healthier foods that I did not like in my youth.
