Is 40 the New 30?
Scientists predict that by the 2050, 52 years of age will be considered middle age, instead of 40.

Who doesn’t buy into this idea? Not surprisingly, people who have not yet turned 30 definitely don’t think that 40 is the new 30. However, the poll shows that the older one gets, the more likely one is to warm up to the idea of 40 being the new 30. To sum it up, my friend Justina who is about to turn 40 says, 'I just don't feel like what I thought 40 would be.'

Maybe that explains it. It's all a matter of perspective or is this just our way of making aging more acceptable? What do you think?

Say What You Need to Say I can not count the number of times I have I heard, “But, she knows I love her…I married her.” or “He knows how I feel.” Communication, as we all know, is a B-I-G D-E-A-L in relationships…the biggest.
