Beyoncé at this point in her career is regarded by many, as one of the greatest artists of all time. Her list of accolades is endless, and she is still only 40-years-old, as she reached this life milestone, back on September 4. Now, Bey has released a letter, on her website, to her fans, thanking them for the overwhelming amount of support this month.
Beyoncé Says This Is The Year Where She Understands What It Means ‘To Be Alive’
Beyoncé started this letter by showing love to her fellow Virgos, as she hoped that they had an amazing month. She also added that everyone who took the time to wish her a happy birthday is an “inspiring human.” This 40th birthday was special to her because Bey found out that she knows what it now means, to “be alive” and “live in the moment.”
“This is the first year that I really understand what it means to be alive and to live in the moment,” Beyoncé said. “It’s the first time that I have an understanding of how fragile life truly is, how hard life can be at times, and therefore how important it is to stop and smell the roses during the good times. I thought I knew that at 21 or 30…but I didn’t.”

Beyoncé Is Enjoying The ‘Seeds’ She’s Planted In Her Life
Beyoncé continued to express how grateful she is, to reach this huge point in her life. She explained how with each maturity level she reaches, the more she understands about life, and the more happier she becomes.
“The more mature I become, the more I understand and the deeper my joy grows. There’s a freedom and liberation knowing that I’ve made it to the other side of my sacrifice,” the 28-time Grammy winner explained. “I’m finally giving myself permission to enjoy the seeds I’ve worked so hard to plant my whole life.”
Beyoncé Explains How Turning 40 Is An Amazing Time
Many feel that when they reach the age of 40, they start to feel old, and aren’t able to do a lot of things in life anymore. For Bey, that is 100% false. In her letter, she believes that this is the best that she’s felt in her life.
“Whoever tried to condition women to feel that we are supposed to be old or unhappy when we turn 40 got it ALL THE WAY F’d UP. This has absolutely been the best I’ve felt in my life. I’m so grateful to be GROWN, GROWN!”
