Happy Birthday Kew,
I am new to the site but I know exactly how you feel. I turned 40 last weekend and feel the same as you. But also likewise I am looking forward to the next phase in my life and all the great things yet to come.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY Kew
I'm heading quickly towards 40 myself, and although it's a bit daunting I know that age is just a number and you're only as old as you feel (or as old as the man you feel..which is why I intend to start feeling some very young men lol)
Kew, you have the heart and spirit of a much younger woman, so just enjoy your 40's. Don't look back & mourn the passing of your 20's and 30's but celebrate the experience that you've gained from them.
I hope you have (had) a fabulous birthday

ps someone recently told me that I have the face & body of a 25 year old...then added that I should give them back to her, cos I'm making them all wrinkly.
People can be so cruel...
