    I'm going to be 40 soon. Most woman dread it but I'm kinda excited. I heard 40 is when you have the best time of your life 😏

    My 40s were so much fun!
    You look younger, that helps. 😊
    You’ll have a blast. 😀🌸

    I hope so! Thank you ☺️

    Well looks like I'll be moving at the end of September. Who woulda thunk our offer would be the one to be accepted!

    Also congratulations!

    I agree. 40s is when I really decided I just don't care. If I want to ogle some hot young thing it's ok cause I'm 40! Haha
    But really it's kind of the decade where you just feel comfortable and confident

    I’m wondering how it was for my son today working outside up at the yard with his dad.
    I feel for him.

    Sometimes I get weeks of regret thinking of if I’d continued in the Royal Marines - with everything happening in the world, it seems to hit me more and more lately.
    Left due to injury but still doesn’t make it any easier.
    Seems to be hitting me like a ton of bricks at the moment.

    I'm older than you--67, so I'll leave you with a few thoughts. First off, sometimes it's just time to move on. Regrets about the past are not productive. Then, I've noticed that when I look back on my life, things always happened for a reason. Something always came along to nudge me onto something else--usually better. Your injury could have been the catalyst. If you're not happy where you are now, start looking around for better. Evaluate as best you can. Good luck.

    Thanks for the kind comment;
    I’m actually pretty happy with life overall (though maybe my comment didn’t come across that way).
    It’s just the what-ifs that creep up sometimes!

    But yes, I agree that things seem to happen for a reason and over time, paths change and we move on to new places.

    Even though regrets are not productive, they happen. :( They have a way of creeping into our brain, working themselves around, and then leaving again. Probably to most everyone. It's what we do with them that counts.

    Stay happy!

    Argh, who know it'd be so hard to find a good set of matte black porcelain dishes that don't include mugs that isn't made in China?? I don't want to 'settle' for something I don't really like, for the prices they charge. :(

    Thank you!!! Still a little surprised we didn't think we'd get to stay in this area and upgrade

    I don't think these are regrets per se. I feel you're more thinking of what could have been a different path. As you said the "what-ifs".

    As long as you don't wallow it's interesting and kind of fun to think about how different your life could be if you had done this or that. It's neat the paths we take and amazing how all our past experiences shape our current.

    First of all, you look like you’re in your early 30’s. You’re going to rock 40.
    The 40’s were the best years for me. 50’s have been kicking my *kitten*. I’m fighting back tho. ❤️

    You can open them up, pour in some vodka, and reseal them with a flat iron. js
