It has been a week since I turned 40, and after having some time to allow it to sink in, it is not so bad after all. I like to think of myself as having 20 years of experience at being 20. 🙂
The down side is that I am now in that age bracket where employers label me as “older” or “up there in age” or whatever the label of choice these days are. In the Technology Industry, youth has its advantages when you are job hunting. However, this old rat still has a few things to offer that the youngins can’t.
As they say, age and guile beat youth and vigour every time. 🙂
