Fear not the age of forty

Azania Mosaka relays her fears on bidding her thirties farewell and stepping into her forties.

Mosaka says she is filled with some anxiety about closing one chapter and beginning another and a whole new decade.

She says these milestones are often accompanied with the pressure of what you may or may not have achieved up until now.

I think being forty is an amazing age because once you've gotten through your twenties and your thirties and then you get to your forties, you have so much confidence.

Lauren, Caller

I just turned forty and I absolutely love it. I was under more pressure when I was in my twenties.

McIntosh, Caller

Each and every age group has its own joys and sorrows.

Mpho, Caller

It seems forty is not an age to fear but one to embrace, well at least, according to these forty-year-olds.
