This Is 40! {what I think of my 40th birthday}

Yes it is true….this “girl” is turning 40!

I can’t change it so I have learned to embrace it.

Sitting here thinking about the last 40 years I feel extremely blessed….what a ride it has been so far! SO many awesome experiences, memories, people and things I have learned along the way.  I feel SO grateful!!  

What I am most grateful for in this moment is God.  I have lived many places and have known many people, some I no longer see and some I do.  But, the one that has been with me, walking by my side, from I first remember is God.  Honestly, I don’t know how I would have made it through all the trials or feel the way I do today without the One.  For this I am eternally grateful.  I am also SO grateful for the people in my life that love me through and through.  Those people made my birthday weekend UNFORGETTABLE! I will never forget about this weekend and hope to post more about it soon.  I am SO grateful for my husband, children, family and true friends!

A few have asked me how I feel about turning 40 and you know what?  Better than I thought I would!  Turns out something I dreaded isn’t so bad after all!  

So this is 40 for me:

-I have lived long enough to know that things can change in an instant so I live in the moment more often….live is precious and I don’t want to take one moment for granted.

-I no longer care what people think about me…this is so freeing!!!!

-I have learned to be a better friend, listener and care taker of myself.

-I have learned that relationships take a lot of love, patience and giving on both ends.  When it becomes a one way street it is time to move on.

-I have finally stopped wanting to be the person that eats healthy and starts her day with quiet time with God and myself because I have BECOME that person.
