In January I will be celebrating a big birthday. I’ll be 40! Most women I know do not look forward to turning 40. Me, I can’t wait.
You’re probably wondering why. Well, I spent my first 40 years making a lot of mistakes and I want the next 40 of my life to be the best! I want to experience life without regret, be in peak physical health, keep on living my life to the fullest with Andy by my side and raise our kids and watch them grow into young adults, go to college, get married, etc.
What this journey has taught me is to be content. When I am content is when I’m the most happy. When I’m wanting something so bad and I have selfish motives I am not content and success is usually not on my side. However, when I think less about me and more about others, my life is far more blessed and full.
So here I am about to turn 40 and I can’t wait. I am so excited to see what my future holds and I’m so honored to have shared my life with all of you. Thank you for giving back to me and being so supportive. I couldn’t have done it if it were not for you knowing we have you cheering us on!
I want you to know that even though this journey is over we have only just begun. We have so much more in front of us. Not just in health but in life and I know that there will be trials in both but I can’t wait for them because I believe in struggle is when growth and success is right around the corner.
