I've always enjoyed the age I'm at, and the age my children are at. But when the next year comes, I'm ready.

Even if I stayed the same, life would never be boring. There's so much to explore, and the world is changing so quickly.

Now if I only had 48 hours in a day to do all that I want to do!

It's hard, though, to find time for yourself when you are self-employed. It seems I'm working all the time, and can snatch only little bits of time for myself.

You have spoken volumes here... this is wonderful. My 40s are different than most; I still have small children, which does greatly limit the amount of "me time" and discovery. However, I'm much more attuned to living in the moment and enjoying life through my children's eyes, than I was in my 30s.

Very well said. I, too, obtained my masters in my 40's and entered a completely new profession to me. Anticipated retirement years activities were altered due to spousal health problems. Then, these past two years have placed me on an altered path as a widow. Continuing to work part time has been an important grounding for me during this time.

Just wanted to say this is such a thoughtful and thought-provoking piece. One my favorites of all the things you have written....I love it! And you too....c.
