Major milestone baby! I’m 40 today! The best part of turning 40 is that I have no idea how 40 is supposed to feel because I don’t feel a day over 20…. ok maybe 30. I admit the daunting feeling that a big change was coming was hard to ignore recently, but there is no point in resisting time because it just keeps going. I’m starting to gain a new respect for time.
A woman before she is 40 is like a fruit hanging and ripening on a tree. Many young people go on and on about how old and mature and all-knowing they are, but it’s not until you get a bit older that you realize how dumb and immature and actually senseless you have been and still are about most things in life. Embrace the unknowing and go out and explore! You go from anxiously waiting to be plucked from that tree to wanting to hang out there as long as you can and enjoy it. The next stage will come when it’s time, no reason to rush it along because you can’t change time. What you can do is embrace change, ride the wave, and throw out your mini skirts! 40!
It took me a long time to realize how much there was that I didn’t know. That realization has taken me from being a seeker to being a finder, it’s slowed me down and it’s given me a true north. Having a journey to look back on helps me to understand some of my choices and encourages me to mindfully step into the future knowing that all I can do is try my best to be at peace with my life’s path.
I’m 40, I’m fierce and it’s fabulous!! Embrace your place in life, you’ll be happy you did!
