    Hi all,
    I will be 40 in next 2 yr.I m proud mother of 6 yrs old girl.
    I m happy person staying in Dubai currently n new re joinee of IL.
    Just a thought came I like to share with u all....
    do u think to be financially independent at age of 40??
    I myself don't know how n what to be done :laughing:.but I think many of our sisters can guide us.
    Also as per society ,my hubby is earing well, I have single child so why is it necessary to work?
    But to be very frank empty nest syndrome is effecting me, I know my daughter also needs me now but for few more yrs then she will be independent after that.
    Also almost 7yrs gap ...I m not at all confident of working. l basic fear is of social interactions now professionally. Though I love talking to people....what a opposite sentences!!!!
    Many people says ur hobbies can be ur earings. But I completely forgot what were my hobbies??? I completely dedicated my self to my daughter n before her to my hubby priorties. I know I didn't do something out of box but still I feel I lost my self somewhere.
    But still I m thinking of earing .
    Hope u all can connect n help me n ladies like me going through this stage!!!:ciao:

    This definition is from Wikipedia: Financial independence is the status of having enough income to pay one's living expenses for the rest of one's life without having to be employed or dependent on others.
