If you're over 40 ...
... you control less, and enjoy more.
... you forgive others more easily. Even more important, you learn how to forgive yourself.
... you've probably made all of your really big mistakes.
... you've learned to nurture yourself more.
... you've learned the value -- and the relief -- of being direct while being kind.
... you are willing to plan less and trust fate more.
... all the big adventures are inner ones.
... you are more patient with individuals, less patient with bureaucracy.
... you treat homeless people with respect and without judgment.
... you value ego less, soul more.
... at heart you still have hippie values and let them show more as you get older.
