At 38 years old, I have begun to develop a growing awareness that 40 is not as far away as it once was. There are subtle reminders. My back hurts when I jog. My knees ache if I sit too long in one position. I have to carefully consider how to carry heavy objects. Rising off the floor from a seated position is a bit of a balancing act. Even with all of this, I was quite unprepared for the curve ball Mother Nature through at me last week - my first grey hair! Looking in the mirror, I thought I spotted it. Shocking. Obviously, I immediately plucked it to examine it more closely. My greatest fears confirmed, I quickly went back to the mirror, and, oh my, there was another one! Help! 40 draws ever nearer.
