Just the other day I turned the big 4 0.

And the day before, it was a good friend of mine’s turn.

So as I was thinking of what I could get her that was meaningful I decided to come up with a list of 40 Things to Do now that we’re 40.

And as I spent time thinking about things that were character based as well as material based, I thought it might be nice to share this with my Serious Mumma Tribe.

Honestly, even if you’re in your 30s there might be some ideas here.

You see, when you are a mother, particularly a Serious Mumma, you spend a lot of time focused on your kids and their needs, but not nearly so much time spent on yourself.

But RIGHT NOW you are in the PRIME of your life.

You are also at a point where you have learnt so much along the way, and you are able to really focus in on what matters.

So, with that in mind I created my list of 40 Things to Do in Your 40s.

There are 40 little cards that can be cut out, and also a checklist to make it easier to track.

Now as you can see, there is one where I suggest “Visit Every State in Australia” but what this is really about is appreciating the diversity that your own country has to offer, and the beauty in your own backyard.

So, if you’re from the US, Canada, India, Egypt, the UK, or anywhere else in the world, just adapt to suit your location.

I also included my mantra for this year:

“Aim for progressnot perfection

So ladies, if, like me, you’re entering your 40s, now is the time to take the bull by the horns and make this decade work for you!
