Short and 40

When I turned 40 recently, two realizations hit me hard:

  1. Someday, I will die. (like for real die like every person eventually does)
  2. I better work on my personality, because I’m too old to count on my looks. (I’ve never been on par with the likes of Olivia Wilde, but I am looking more like a twice-baked potato each year.)

Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the LORD will be greatly praised. Proverbs 31:30

What realizations hit you when you turned 40?
