Yesterday, at 9:43 p.m., I turned the magically age of 40. I don't feel any different nor do I feel older or even old. It is an amazing turning point in my life. I remember when I turned 30--I finally was a grown up.
This year I have survived something that broke me into a million pieces. This year I have learned to forgive. This year I have learned to look at things without being too jaded. This year I have learned what I am about and how I deal with "stuff". This year I have been humbled, many times. This year I have learned to love without reservations.
Looking back on my years, I wouldn't change too many things...just two. I won't ever be "okay" with those two things. They have shaped the woman, wife, mother, sister, daughter, cousin, friend and doula I am right now.
Life is good. Happy New Decade to Me!!
