Yes, today is the day…. the big 4-OH as they say. I remember when my kids were babies and I was in the trenches with four children under the age of 4 1/2, I remember saying to myself boy am I looking forward to my forties because the kids will be older and I will be able to return to me a little bit more. The last few years have really tested me it has been a time of enormous growth, I have found a good balance between me and my responsibilities of being a mom etc. I learned that it is okay that I matter and it doesn’t have to detract from the people who depend on me. I must say I am excited about the future.
Yesterday when I got home I had a package on my front step from my Aunt Joanne whose talents are beyond amazing and she had knitted me an infinity scarf! I love my family and so gifts like this mean the world to me. The gift also came with a perfectly worded card.
40 is the beginning of everything that matters
It’s when you start to be respected in the world, make an impact and get listened to.
It’s when you let go of everything fake and pursue what’s important to you for real.
It’s when you realize that knowing what you know, you wouldn’t go back.
40 is when you deserve to celebrate yourself and take pride in your strengths without apologizing.
Cheers to everything that matters!
