Ken's Naperville Real Estate Blog : APPROACHING 40

APPROACHING 40

Some may know that I am approaching one of lifes big milestones in the next couple of weeks.

40.  40 years old.  Sounds fairly mature.  Very serious.

But I still feel like a kid.

Sure, a kid with lots of pressures.  Lots of responsibilities.  Lots of things to do.

But still a kid.

So I approach this day, my birthday, with lots of excitement.

40 will be a great age.

Go with it, it's a great age. I am 55 and I am still stoked

I sure WISH I was 40 again!  Still a kid at 54.  It's startling to see that old guy who pops up on my mirror every morning.  :)

Happy upcoming Birthday! Do something fun!

On my 40th, I was in the Gulf of Mexico at 8am jumping in for my first 'open water dive'.  Scuba diving was something I hadn't done and vowed to take up by age 40.

Happy Birthday, Ken.  30 was the worst for me, and I know it is different for everyone, and women versus men.  I, too, will be turning 55 in another month, but you can't stop the clock, so you may as well enjoy it!  At 40, you're still young and in the prime of your life.  You have more brains than when you were 25, I hope less testosterone, which allows you to think more efficiently (did I say that?), you know what you want in life, and you're probably still in fabulous shape. Party hardy.  Enjoy...  This is the best time of your life!

If you stay healthy, eat right and excercise 40 is the new 30 or so they say.  You're only as old as you feel.  I can't think of any more cliches.  Have a happy birthday.

Ken,  Happy 40th when it arrives, if it hasn't already.  Don't sweat it!  I'm 45 and like you still feeling the little boy inside of myself.  Mike

Congradulations on your milestone! It gets better no matter what they tell you! Hope you have another 40 (or more) productive years ahead!

Gotta listen to Jimmy Buffett's "A Pirate Looks At Forty"

 

It is not that bad, besides it beats the altenative.

 

Happy Birthday.

Ken,

40 is a great age, I remember mi 40th like it was just yesterday. I don't know where the time went tho, my oldest son will be 40 in October. Happy Birthday in advance of the celebration.

Hi Ken,

I myself feel the same way, and I also always think of a Jimmy Buffett line "growing older but not up"

Hi Andrew.  Thanks for stopping by.

How old are you?  Your picture looks young, although it could be from 1985!:)

There are not a whole lot of instances where you may need to identify the owner of an unknown cell phone number; but, I'll tell you what, when the occasion arises, a trusted and reliable <a href="http://www.findacellphoneuser.com/">reverse cell phone lookup</a> directory is good to have at your disposal.
