My 40s, Self-Discovery, and Skateboards

Skateboard woman women

Something happened when I turned forty a couple years back. People had warned me that they had “come into their own” at that age, or that they “had stopped caring what other people thought.” I don’t really know what it means to come into your own, your own what?
I cared too much about what other people thought since I was in my early twenties, allowing them to define what adulthood, motherhood, and all the other kinds of ‘hoods “should” look like. Then I turned 40, and discovered how much I no longer cared about anyone else’s definitions happened to be.
It’s a little odd to be as old as my parents were when I was old enough to pay attention
