Lordy, Lordy, i can't be 40?!?!


Wednesday, July 29, 2009

i can not believe it has been ten whole years since i was depressed about turning thirty? what the heck was i thinking?!? actually today is my 40th birthday, and rather than feeling depressed or 'old', i am feeling so energized and blessed.

i can honestly say that overall i am more confident and self-secure than i have ever felt in my life. not sure if that comes with realizing that no one is perfect and to accept your flaws as a part of life, or if its just caring less about what others think, and more about knowing who we are. i also think a huge part of my confidence is attributed to feeling like i am where God needs me to be. For so long, i prayed for things i wanted and thought i needed. now, i just pray to stay in His will.

Hope you all have a blessed day! deb

    WEll Deb I did it I turned 45 on the 13th of jan. And yeah I was right it really sucked. lol Not my birthday that was nice, Glenn and I went out and had a really nice meal. Its just different when I turned forty I felt like I had turned a corner, become more comfortable with myself and decided I liked me...turning 45 though just made me think how fast I went from 40 to 45 and how much faster will it be to 50? I don't know it just seems rather sucky. lol If you know what I mean. lol

Ps...I'm writing this too you 7 months after your birthday so enjoy all the unsucky stuff, you'll soon be here. hahaha
I should write for hallmark and see if I can't give everyone these warm and fuzzy thoughts. lol

Just kidding sweety I hope you'll be super happy and even more content at 45 I'm just totally wierd. It the whole thelma/louise complex. hahaha.

    Happy Birthday Deb. Just think we made it to the 40's and never killed anyone. hahaha.

I felt like you when I turned 40, more comfortable in my own skin. I'm looking at 45 this jan. though and not so thrilled about that.

Big birthday hugs,

    emoticon emoticon Happy Birthday! I can't help but smile at your milestone day, I vaguely remember my 40th almost 16 years ago! And you are wise for your age: praying to stay in God's will is sooo much better than fighting for your will to be done! Because of God's grace to me, I met my future husband at 39, dated & married him at 41.5, gone back to college to get a degree in something I really love, and hey, the Adventure continues! Enjoy your 40's -- the 50's are Even Better. Vikki

    Congrats!
Just wait until your fiftieth ...
For me it meant changing my whole lifestyle from a consumer freak with a high management job to a "less is more lifestyle". It also entailed a rough divorce from my "co-spender" who did not want the "new" me.
As for god ... happy for you that you believe. Not too sure about that stuff myself.
During my voyage I also dropped of about 20 kilos. Just have a few more to go ... but they really suck to get rid of. Stubborn little things. But I have so much more energy and feel so much better now.
After my wedding on August 8th (yaiks ... 10 days away!!) I will make a new effort to get rid of them.
Good luck to you!
