Turning forty.....

Sunday, October 06, 2013

I thought I would take a few moments to write tonight, my heart is feeling a little heavy. I always feel this way before my birthday but today it's a little stronger. I don't k ow wether or not I'm ready to say goodbye to the thirties, they've been good, a lot better than my twenties! I got married, had my two beautiful children and found a lot of success in my career. I also gained a whole lot more confidence and just general ease. I think I'm happier too! I have mixed feeling about turning forty, I know it's inevitable and a whole lot better than never having the chance to turn forty. I remember how OLD forty was when I was a kid! I never imagined that it wouldn't actually feel much different than thirty, or younger. I want to move into this new decade with a good attitude, and continue on this journey to better health and be the best I can be! I want to be one of those people that make getting older look good, and fun! I will continue learning, growing and bettering myself. I will gain a stronger sense of peace that I've only recently found. I want to become a BETTER person, more compassionate and more involved. I know this next decade can and will be great and I'm looking forward to it.

    I feel like my 30's are going to be better than my 20's (hopefully we'll get to have a kid or two which will make my 30's perfect)...and I know my 40's will be better than my 30's! Don't you remember thinking THIRTY was so old when you hit 25 and realized you were halfway to the big 3-0? 40 will be the same, you'll see :)

    I believe that your forties will be better than your thirties. I have loved my first 3 years of my forties. Each year I have gotten healthier, I have realized what is really important to me and I have started to live.

Look at the next decade as an opportunity to accomplish even more with your life.

    I believe forty (40) never looked so good. So be encouraged & enjoy everyday. I don't think even with this weight my mom looked so good at forty-four (44). Think of how many people didn't get to celebrate another birthday or live to become forty (40) or even a day older. Celebrate this day and don't look at the age look at how sweet it is to have one more opportunity...

God bless & celebrate everyday!
