We Are Women over 40

Revel! We are Women over 40

Revel in it. We are Women over 40

I’m over 40. Actually, I’m almost 45. And, I’m proud of it. I’m so proud of the confidence that I have now. I feel more beautiful, stronger, and even better as I get older. Call me Cougar, if you want. But just don’t call me old.

I pains me when I hear women say they’re ‘Forever 29′.

Ladies, don’t lie about your age. Revel in the numbers. Every wrinkle, every bump, every grey hair has been well earned. You are beautiful. You are knowing. Boy, are you sexy!

I love these remarks about Women over 40. This piece, attributed to Andy Rooney, is making the rounds, as these things do. According to Snopes, though, they were written by Frank Kaiser of Suddenly Senior. They’ve since been embellished, and the ending, which is spectacular, has been added.

Who cares who penned the words. They’re amazing. Read them. Absorb them. And particularly, enjoy that last line. Go TEAM.

And, feel sorry for the men who have decided to spend their time with whiney-screaming-unknowing-annoying 20-somethings who wake them up in the middle of the night to explore their feelings. 

20-something women who are not in their prime (if you know what I mean *wink*)…

As I grow in age, I value women who are over 40 most of all. Here are just a few reasons why…….. 

A woman over 40 will never wake you in the middle of the night to ask,”What are you thinking?” She doesn’t care what you think.

If a woman over 40 doesn’t want to watch the game, she doesn’t sit around whining about it. She does something she wants to do. And, it’s usually something more interesting.

Women over 40 are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant. Of course, if you deserve it, they won’t hesitate to shoot you, if they think they can get away with it.

Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what it’s like to be unappreciated.

Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over 40.

Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 40 is far sexier than her younger counterpart.

Older women are forthright and honest. They’ll tell you right off if you are a jerk or if you are acting like one! You don’t ever have to wonder where you stand with her.

Yes, we praise women over 40 for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it’s not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed hot woman of 40 , there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 22-year-old waitress. Ladies, I apologize.

For all those men who say, “Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free”. Here’s an update for you: Nowadays 80 percent of women are against marriage, why? Because women realize it’s not worth buying an entire Pig, just to get a little sausage. 


PS. We would love if you would share a gorgeous picture of yourselves, and we will make a collage of all of your beautiful 0ver-40 faces (or under 40 too…) Just put them up on our Facebook Page  and we’ll take it from there. 


  1. I love this post!!! And I love that piece, whoever wrote it!! Lo! I’m 47 and I would not go back to my 20’s for all the tea in China. Not that I didn’t like my 20’s, I did. But I like me much better now.

    • I liked my 20s, but the 40s are so much better. Don’t forget to share your picture on our Facebook page, Kathy.

    This is the best post ever Mara!! I agree that 40’s are awesome but for me my 50’s are the best years of my life! Having great women in your life is a blessing that I never knew in my 20’s and 30’s. They are there for you when you need them, give you your space when you need it and encourage and support you – whether they agree with you or not. And I ain’t getting me one of those “bald, paunchy relic’s in yellow pants”, leave them for the 20 sumthin’s… call me a “Cougar” if you want but I’ve got me a Prince who is 13 yrs younger than me (at least he can keep up with me!) xox

    • You are SO amazing Colleen!! Share your picture on our facebook page! I want to put you in our collage. And look at you go, Cougar. xo

  3. In my mid-thirties I’m SO looking forward to when my psychic abilities finally kick in! This post is all kinds of fabulous, and has been bookmarked for every time I need a little reminder of how awesome it is to “act my age”. :)

  4. Next year I will be 50, here that 50 and well I just now feel like I am hitting my prime in so many way..The 40’s and beyond deserve to be celebrated.
