I remember when I was in my 20’s I used to think that 40 was soooooo old and that I had to get everything I wanted accomplished by 30.  In my mind, at that time, I thought women pretty much were done living by the time they reached 40 years old. 

Now that I’m in my 40’s, I can tell you that my 20-year-old self was totally WRONG! When it comes to recreating your life, developing new goals and truly going after your dreams, being 40 years old or older is the best time.  There are some major benefits to having lived and had some life experience beyond 35 or 40.


  1. Wisdom – More life experience can help you can wisdom.  I’m saying every woman aged 40 and up is wise, but MANY have more wisdom than they did in their youth.  The reason is that life experience helps you learn lessons.  Lessons that teach what to do and what not to do in order to live a peaceful and happy life.
  2. Value the experience – sometimes when you are younger you want to hurry up and get to the “destination”.  But when you get older you realize, there is no, solid “destination” because your entire life journey is the “destination”.  Life is an accumulation of experiences that we have, and secret is to learn how to make every experience enjoyable.  When you are older you learn to slow down and value each and every experience.
  3. Patience – this is a big one!  Patience truly comes with age because as you grow older you realize change is constant.  No matter what the circumstance is, in time, it will change. It’s hard to learn this lesson when your younger because it seems like time goes so slow, but the older you get, the more you realize, time is going fairly fast.  So, it’s important to have patience and savor the moment because it will change, sooner than you think.

Being an older woman does not automatically mean you have all the answers, but it does give you more perspective when it comes to setting new goals and going after your dreams.  Take it from me at 40 years old I completely changed my entire life (read my “about me” page here) and started a whole new amazing journey and you can too!
