Well, it’s finally arrived. Tomorrow is my birthday.
My 40th birthday.
The 40th birthday is traditionally when a person gets all that “over the hill” bullshit. The thing is, I don’t feel old. I’m in great physical shape, I like to have my fun, AND we’re just over two months away from being done with our debt management program. My 40th year on earth will be a new beginning, a new chapter of my life free from the shackles of debt and poor spending habits.
For me, life really does begin at 40.
Now, let’s get down to business. Get those fists ready….but give me a minute to stretch out. I don’t wanna pull anything – I am almost 40 you know.
