For many women, aging is the most serious infraction that could happen. You begin to wonder if your husband is going to have a midlife crisis – or worse, if you are.

Okay, so you’re in your 40s, is it really that bad? Of course not – here’s why:

Now you have time for you, time to do all those things you only dreamed of with a baby in one hand and a toddler running around.

Rock that Sexy New Do

The 40s are a great time to reinvent yourself. Don’t go out and quit your job, but take the time to do something for you. Get a sexy new haircut or take yourself on a shopping spree, the world is your oyster. You are no longer bound to the granny look of previous generations (thank goodness!) and you can age in style.

Don’t become a victim to those who say your life is over. In actuality, it is only just the beginning.
