Katherine Heigl Is Thrilled About Turning 40

Actress Katherine Heigl has revealed that she is thrilled about turning 40. Heigl was seen celebrating her birthday on November 24th and took to her Instagram account to commemorate her birthday with her followers. She gave fans and followers a sneak peek into her birthday soiree. The picture featured the actress adorned in a casual outfit which included a sweater and simple jeans, while she posed in front of huge silver balloons that said the number 40.

"Well... I am officially 40 years old. I know you are going to think I'm full of it but the truth is... I'm pretty damn thrilled to be 40," she captioned the post.

"For one thing, as my mother always says 'Getting older is better than the alternative'. Too true mother, too true," she wrote.

"For another thing, 40 feels to me like a certain kind of freedom. Freedom from all the self doubt, insecurities, self loathing, uncertainties and anxieties of my 20s and 30s."

The Knocked Up actress further added "Not to say I don't still have those moments but I just feel like 40 makes me older and wiser. Steadier in my convictions. More certain of my strengths. More forgiving of my faults.

"I've spent the last five years of my 30s doing the work to evolve my mind and spirit. To move my heart towards a more profound and loving expression of my best self. I've read, studied, explored and practiced ways to expand my understanding of myself and the world around me.

"I've clarified my deepest desires and found that all I really crave is well being. For myself and those I love."
