“What Would A Forty Years Old Woman Do?”

If you ask a forty years old woman what she would do in a certain problem you have, she would probably cut straight to the point and handle it like a boss. Without thinking about other people’s opinions, and without apologizing.
Well, I am turning 40 very soon. The real 40. And you know what? I feel great about myself, I am confident, and I think I’m a better mother, too.

4. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck, by Mark Manson

For me, it’s says “no pain, no gain” about everything. It says happiness lies in the achievements.
