Turning 40 is somewhat of a big deal. Just ask my wife, Tobi. She recently faced this milestone. Unlike when I had my turn, she handled the transition like a pro. Maybe it was the ENORMOUS ice cream sundae we shared, or just her positive perspective that made the day a true celebration.
One lesson I have personally learned over the years is that birthdays are easier when you are comfortable with where your life is relative to your age. Since I have experienced both sides of this coin, I know the value of making wise decisions that lead to longer term happiness. Knowing this, I closely watched how well she faced the change. I was pleased to see her respond like a champ, and without a single tear!
