Wow it’s official today I am forty years old. I know I should be freaking out moaning about the wrinkles but to be perfectly honest I love it. I am celebrating not just the coming of a milestone age but also the freedom in who I am.
Finally at forty I am comfortable in my own skin. I know the direction of my life and I’m content and fulfilled.
I am celebrating more than 40 years on this earth. I am recognising my struggles, my heartbreaks, my relationships and the way they have all shaped me into the person I am today.
I am looking back and seeing the many blessings I have had in my life. Celebrating my beautiful girls, my handsome boys, my wonderful husband.
I am grateful for the friendships that I’ve had, those that have stood the test of time and those that were brief but valuable.
I can look back and see the life’s lessons I have had to learn. Some I got quickly some which took a little longer, all had value, all had purpose.
I’m excited about the coming years, excited to embrace all the future has for me.
I’m moving into my 40’s determined and head first.
I’ve learned a lot over the last 4 decades and I’m hoping I will take this knowledge forward into new experiences and new memory making moments. I’m hoping that older may mean wiser but hey you know me. Heart first and the head a little later.
