I'm a bit anxious because we are in our second bout of severe T-storms tonight! One town not too far had a funnel cloud touch down & there are many without power & major trees limbs down etc. I talked to a friend of mine & she said her car escaped a huge tree falling on top of it only because she was too lazy to move it from the street to the driveway last night! See, not always bad being lazy! Ha! So far I still have power, so I'm hoping to get this entry done before it gets real bad again! My deck garden is pathetic! My flag is nowhere to be found, feeders crashed down on my plants! Ugh! I should have taken a picture yesterday before this! I'll take one tomorrow!
I have been meeting a great many women, via their journals, who state in their bios how wonderful they feel to be in their 40s! As someone who just turned 40 yrs old this past March, I thought I'd add this journal to give you all a chance to tells those of us either just joining the 40 club or soon will be, what is so wonderful about being in your 40s!
As someone who has only been 40 for a few months, I don't think I can speak from experience yet, but I'll tell you about one of the most vibrant women I know. I have read her books over the years & met her a few years ago. She inspires me so much! Her name is Sark (click to check out her vibrant website!) & I have journaled a bit about her before, but thought it is worth another mention for those new to my journal. You can listen to her overview here (Click the Play Button).
Sark has a books called "Succulent Wild Woman", "The Bodacious Book of Succulence" and "Eat Mangoes Naked", which to me, is all about the vibrance of women... no matter what age!!! You know how they have the "Red Hat Society" for woman who are even older, which by the way I saw a bunch of them at our town ice cream spot 2 weeks ago, well...Sark has "Succulent Wild Women" groups! What does it mean to be a "Succulent Woman?" According to Sark:
"ripe, juicy, whole, round, exuberant, wild, rich, wide, deep, firm, rare female that you are"
Now that I can identify with! :-) Well, maybe not currently with this nagging foot injury, but most of the time & it is in me somewhere right now! Ha! God help the person when it explodes out of me one day when I'm doing better! Ha!
So please leave a comment or a link to your entry on what is so Wonderful about being a woman in your 40s!
