Is 40 the new 20?

After watching the GOAT Tom Brady in the Super Bowl I couldn’t help thinking he is at the top of his game right now at 42. I was always told 30 was the new 20, but Im beginning to think 40 the new 20. You think life is great when your 20, then life gets better when your 30 and if things only get better what’s the plateau?
Your 20’s you really get to know yourself, like all of you, you learn your preferences, and your triggers. In your 30’s you are in super self aware mode and have figured things out what’s important to you. and I gather your 40’s is when you flourish the most (without all the body aches and hospital trips).
I mean have you seen how JLo ages? Backwards and she’s 51! Halle Berry, they all age backwards but maybe the cheat code is just getting to that age.
I’m not quit 40 yet and am about to settle into my late 20’s. However some of my best friends are. Their kids are all grown and out of the house, they all have these fancy houses with pottery barn decor, their careers are set, their taking trips with cute outfits getting surgery’s just overall living life. As someone headed for their 40’s this is extremely exciting information. Most people make you feel like your life is on a downward spiral until you one day pass away. It’s great to find out we age like wine getting better with time. So keep living if this year is bad guess what, you learned! Learning about ourselves and how we can navigate through your lives. Don’t get down, you get better! Enjoy where you are in your life and trust the process.
