The Big 4-0

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

Well, it is my big 4-0!

I was so bummed to turn 30 I thought for sure 40 would be awful. It is literally the best birthday ever. When I turned 30 I was over 300 pounds, single, in a dead end job, and I had only a high school diploma.

If some asked me then where I would be 10 years later, I never would have even imagined I would be where I am now.

I am for the first time in my life truly happy. I have lost 70 pounds, I got my diabetes under great control, I have not 1 but 2 college degrees, I am married to the best man I have ever known, I have the best career ever (which includes financial freedom), and I have a grown son who is doing great.

I am really happy. I love my life and I am so lucky. I have the best friends and family a lady could ask for. I am also blessed to be part of SP. I get some much kindness and support it is truly amazing.

So bring on the next decade, I can't wait to see how much my life changes in the next 10 years.

Today's birthday wish: for all of my friends to find their happiness and peace!

    I hope that you have a fantastic birthday! My 25th was the worst for me and there hasn't been another one since that bothered me. That was 44 years ago!
