    Love it! I’m a 44 year old single mom of 2 teenagers these days running her own real estate business and living this wonderful life. My boyfriend is 7 years younger and I love it when people (including his family members) believe I’m younger than him! haha.
    Thank God for hair color (or highlights in my case). I think that was the beginning of women reclaiming their youth in their late 30′s and beyond. I believe it also helped me that I found “laying out” in the sun boring as hell. So, while my friends were frying, I was enjoying my alabaster skin, and sometimes using self-tanner lotions. These days I look less “leathery” than some of my peers. But, I think it comes down to happiness. If you live your life in gratitude and are willing to be responsible for your own happiness it keeps you young.
    I’ve earned my laugh-lines and wrinkles. Life is good in my 40′s. It brought me self-acceptance, self-love, and self-awareness. What a gift!

    For Heaven’s Sake!   Forty hasn’t been “old” for ages.  And all these women have had help.

    Yeah, I can believe they are forty.
