I turned 40 today and I'm a year closer to death, that's not a good combination.

I have a cyst on the inside of my left jaw and I may need an operation.

But in spite of this, I'm feeling happy.

Life can be good but it can also be crappy.

I may be four decades old but I still have much time to be around.

If you're forty years old or older, please don't let it get you down.
