I personally do not agree completely with the saying that life begins at 40. The fact is that life can begin at any age. But coincidentally, I am 40, and here I am, wanting to try to have my own blog, inspired by my youngest brother who has been an active blogger for long. He's 25 and I am 40 - such a wide gap. However, I don't feel that old to try out something new.
I am a teacher, and this morning itself, during the Teacher's Day celebration at my school, I tried playing futsal for the first time in my life, and I fell in love with the game instantly. Do not frown at this 40 year-old mom having this weird interest. To me, age is just a number. It's you who paint your life with dull or interesting things. What else do I want to do at this age? I've started translating songs to join my brother's hobby, and I'll keep on doing it. I'm looking forward to present my paper on translation of songs in August. I hope many more interesting things are awaiting ahead to mark the beginning of my 40's. I am grateful to Allah for all these wonderful things.
