Nigerian actress, Damilola Adegbite has revealed that indeed life should begin at age 40.
The 37 year old mother of one made this know via her Instagram page, where she further stated that she might not be up to 40 but from the feelings she’s already having, she is optimistic that it is going to worth it after all.
She wrote, “Now I know why they say “Life begins at 40” for most women. Has anyone ever noticed how sexy and alive women in their 40s are? I’m not 40 yet but I already feel a different type of way. A new surge of energy. It’s like the older a woman gets, the more in tune she is with herself and what she wants her life to be. Her happiness, confidence and peace of mind are priority. Everything else is either welcome to align or exit the building.”
Adegbite had in previous post penned her thoughts on managing emotions when hurtful things are said to you.
The divorced actress urged her followers on Instagram to permanently or temporarily walk away from any uncomfortable situation instead of engaging in verbal fights that might make matters worse.
She wrote: “Words are like eggs. Once they are spoken, they are forever embedded in the minds of the ones spoken to, for better or for worse, for we do not have control over a person’s interpretation of what has been said to them.
Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaketh. Pay close attention to what people say to you.
On the flip side, mastering our emotions when offended is a rare show of strength. We shouldn’t retaliate with hurtful words as that would only make us, in the heat of the moment, look and act like barbarians. We however, do not need to stay mute. The smarter move would be to express our displeasure calmly, get up.. literally, and temporarily… or permanently.. walk away.”
