40 Today!!


Ten Things about Turning 40 Today!
  1. I know, meri twacha se meri umr ka pata hee nahi chalta, thoda bahut hee pata chalta hai but the fact is I am 40 years old today!! While many are not comfortable with this thought, I am kind of happy on entering the fourth decade of my life on this earth.
  2. I can see 3-4 grey strands of hair and the son can see 5-6 more, I have decided that I am never gonna color or dye my hair, despite umpteen suggestions by friends and hair stylist.
  3. A friend asked today, “So you are 40 today, do you feel old? The answer is NO. “Nobody grows old merely by living a number of years.  We grow old by deserting our ideals.  Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.” And this is what I want to follow, each day, each year!40
  4. They say, “At the age of 20, we don’t care what the world thinks of us; at 30, we worry about what it is thinking of us; at 40, we discover that it wasn’t thinking of us at all.” Yes, it’s so very true and I have realised it for a long time now!! 🙂
  5. Helen Rowland said, life begins at 40 – but so do fallen arches, rheumatism, faulty eyesight, and the tendency to tell a story to the same person, three or four times. While the first three have not made their presence yet, the last one is beginning to show it’s head at times!! LOL
  6. At twenty years of age, the will reigns; at thirty the wit; at forty the judgment, said Benjamin Franklin. Yes, the maturity is kind of coming in, or so I like to believe.
  7. There’s a joke which reads, at 40, you get two invitations to go out on the same night, and you pick the one that gets you home the earliest. True, I prefer to come back and settle snuggly in my comfort zone!
  8. 40=24+16 years of experience!! And, this experience makes you tell stories, share tips, give suggestions very frequently, much to the chagrin of some!
  9. Being Fit @ Forty is important and vital. So it’s time to say hello to regular exercise, healthy habits, nutritious diet…
  10. Well, they say age is just a number! And you are as old as you feel. And there is no denying the fact that I feel good @ 40!!

  1. With this positive attitude, you will never feel old. And from my experience, 40 (and ++) is not at all bad.. it is just a different kind of perspective .. about body, about mind, about goals, about life …

  2. Happy Birthday Shilpa…Wishing you many years of happiness..
    And that’s a lovely post! Can’t believe you to be 40! I’ve recently entered 3rd decade, and I already see 4 strands of grey hair..which was a bit panicking for me!

  3. It is all in the mind. And that is true. Easier said than done, nevertheless.

    Enjoy the forties. And grow young and wise.
    There are a many who never grow young , despite aging. Be an exception. All the best.

  4. I say yay to no 5. I miss my faultless eyesight the most.

    And I say follow no 9 seriously, its a life saver.. literally.

    I am a decade ahead of you, and even now things are great, whats a wrinkle or two?

  5. Oh Wow! OH WOW! I didn’t know you turned 40 yesterday! That is sooooo cool! I’ll just make it to 34 next month… long way to go still…

    Don’t think my hair will change colors though, unless I decide to dye it. I’m more likely to go bald I guess! Perhaps I’ll look more like a Kaddu then…

    Oh well, never mind… wish you a biiiiiiigggg C-O-N-G-R-A-T-U-L-A-T-I-O-N-S on touching the glorious forties! 😀 😀 😀

  6. Damn the number.You are old only the day YOU decide to look, feel and behave old.
    With the kind of positive attitude you have, it might take you years and determination before you grow old.
    Enjoy yourself.You are too young to get old.
    happy birthday.

  7. *jaw-drop! You are 40!! Honestly, from your DP you dont look 40 at all, aapki umar waakai mei pata nahi chalta! 😀

    Wish you a very happy b’day, Shilpa! I loved the points you jotted down, and your positive outlook :). Heres wishing you the most fantastic years ahead!

    I hope I am able to introspect in the same positive manner and feel good about it when I enter my fourth decade in a few years.

  8. Happy birthday Shilpa ! The forties are actually a time of great self acceptance!Lol i go around telling anyone tht asks my age (which is 42) and am damn happy abt it too !Ur points were too good!enjoy dear !

  9. You are exactly 11 years older to me. I don’t care about aging either. But greys – I got them when I was 20. So I started using henna. now I am very much used to the burgundy colour. I cannot go for hair colour. That’s so not me!
