I hope your 40th Birthday was or will be an awesome celebration of your life and accomplishments. I am grateful for every Birthday milestone I achieve, especially after a very scary cancer diagnosis in 2003. I had some heartbreaking loses during that time but I also realized how blessed I was in my faith, family and friends. It hasn’t always been easy and I have certainly had my struggles but I have always picked myself up and move forward just like the Chinese proverb says ” fall down seven times, get up eight”.
I have a young spirit which is something I love about myself ( Don’t you love how at 40 you can actually name something you love about yourself?) Sure, we all have responsibilities and commitments but why not have fun while doing them. Dance up the aisle in the grocery store to that great song. Wear glitter eyeshadow. Buy that great sweater at American Eagle. Start a blog.
I am Mom to two boys 16 and 12 who are both involved in competitive sports. I married by best friend and have been married for just over 20 years. I am employed full time in the field of education.
