One would think after you turn 40, you have your shit together by now.
By society’s definition, your career should be on track. You are married with children, and living in a two-bedrooms house happily ever after.
I felt like an aging actress in Hollywood, competing with tons of 20 somethings in a market where youth is everything.
So like Madonna (in her 50s), it was time to re-invent myself, I chose to move to New York City from San Francisco about two years ago, after I turned 40 (something).
Early this year, I also decided to head back to school and learned something completely different from what I used to do; I was bored with my previous profession, right after I turned 40 something.
I may be 40 something, but I am rich in life experience. I am grateful having close friends, a loving partner (met him after I turned 40 something) and a yorkie, Elliot, who won’t judge me (at least I think he is not judging me).
From my recent post, #blogging101, I described my motivations and reasons why I wanted to create a space called Wang and The City. Besides practicing creative writing, but most importantly, I want to express my thoughts from fashion, food, drinks and pop culture from a forty something’s point of view.
Life is complicated and packed with uncertainty. I am scared but excited about this new chapter of my life. Thank god for Botox, you will never see fears on my face (because it doesn’t move).
