If you are almost 40 you will probably understand this blog post. It is a funny feeling being almost 40, you feel as if it was only yesterday that you were 20 something. Suddenly you see this person on the mirror, a 20 something girl who have added another 20 years to her life and is much more tired, who doesn't feel like going out at night anymore because she prefers a Netflix movie with her husband and children, a girl who has many more wrinkles and a belly that wobbles when she walks because she brought a few other lil humans to this world.
If you are almost 40 you feel fed up when looking up for something fashion related on Pinterest and only finding 20 year old models who are flawlessly gorgeous wearing that skinny jeans you want to wear or with the hair style you wish to do. Then you feel puzzled! You are uncertain, your confidence is shaken and you are not sure you can do it anymore since all the pictures you see are of very young ladies - "maybe I am too old for that" - you think to yourself.
If you are almost 40 and you walk on the streets you will notice that most women our age have given up, they wear baggy jeans and their hair is up on a ponny tail. They don't know anymore the "cans and cants" of a woman who is almost 40.
So when I photographed Sarah I saw a beautiful woman who is almost 40 and is full of confidence, she loves fitness, she wears her hair down, she enjoys make up, she just made a HUGE tattoo on her back and she is here to prove to all 40 or almost 40 year old women that yes we can! We can and MUST love ourselves and enjoy this strange age. It is never time to give up and there is beauty in every stage of life! Hear that Pinterest??? Today I will start a board: "Women of 40". Sarah's Pictures will definitely be there too!
So go love yourself, we still have so much life and no time to waste at all!
Here is to us, women of almost 40, stunning at all ages!
