Happy Birthday To Me?

Two weeks from today I will be hitting the big 4 0.

Oh god.

Birthdays aren’t normally a big deal for me.  I never freaked out when I turned 30 and even threw myself a big party when I made it to 35.  But for some reason 40 is really bothering me.

I know a big part of it is that I’m not completely happy with my life right now.  I’m certainly not where I want to be emotionally, physically or financially.

At this point in my life I would have thought that a lot of the big stuff would have resolved itself by now…but apparently life doesn’t work that way.

I’m also extremely worried that I’m never going to have sex again.

They say that women hit their sexual peak during their 30’s.  And since I can be reasonably certain that I had sex less than 10 times during my last decade, where does that leave me?

    Oh don;t worry too much. Most people haven’t got their lives exactly where they expected to be by Forty. In fact, even by fifty. Life isn’t always what we expected it to be and things don’t always work the way we would like. Forty is just another year hun and it’s a good one if you have your health.
    As for sex: I can’t help – too far away :-)
    Where does it all leave you? It leaves you with things you have yet to do, people you have yet to meet and a life you’re still living. Enjoy it and don’t dwell on the things you think you should have done or achieved “by now” Your expectations may not be what life has in store for you.
    Anyway, that’s my 2c worth.

    I could offer some ubiquitous cliche like 40 is the new 30 but when looking at the big picture I dont think it is needed. I have seen your pictures and I think you are absolutly gorgous, the sex thing will take care of itself. As for the other things well. The sweet isnt as sweet until you have tasted the sour. Life ebbs and it flows and when you are on the up swing it will be that much better.
