I remember laughing at my mom when she spoke about "Hot Flashes" and "Hormonal Stuff," when I was younger. I thought she was suffering from old people problems and it was nothing I needed to worry about, since getting old was a million years away.
Have you ever looked back at old photos, reminiscing about being in your 20s and thinking that 40 was so old? I would have never believed that I would feel so good in my 40s! I have more confidence, I'm in good shape, and I care less about what people think!
