I've been waiting to be 40 since I was about 13. My wait is almost up and I'm ready. I've been told that it gets better at 40 and, if 39 is any indication of future trends, it will be a year to remember. 

I am (finally) comfortable in my own skin. I've proven to myself that I can do just about anything I put my mind to, including love and forgive myself more than ever before.  I'm a badass.

I'm incredibly curious to see what comes next. I have a feeling I'm going to enjoy it.
