Just read this in the June issue of More magazine. Love that Ellen Barkin, an inspiration at age 53:

I remember turning 40 and really feeling spectacular, like, I feel substantial, I feel like I take up space. I know who I am, I know my strengths and weaknesses — and now I’m going to figure out what to do with them. And I feel like that again. I feel awake.

A great way to go through life.
