Turning 40...

Today is my 40th birthday and I must say I am enjoying myself. No, I haven't done much of anything yet... I am just relaxing. I enjoyed a light breakfast(which was prepared by my teenager), received a wonderful gift from my BFF (which I'll shared with you later), got a call that my other BFF put something in my bank account (now that's what I'm talking about!), watched a little television (recordings of Army Wives and How to Look Good Naked), read some of my book (Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz) and tiptoed into the office while everyone was out to write you a little note.

I really don't know what else is planned for today. My oldest daughter and my BFF have told me that I just need to be ready to go out at about 5 p.m. and dressed in "business casual." Hmmmm? Because I'm not used to not knowing something and being out of control, I had a dream that I was going to England tonight! LOL. Now wouldn't that be a trip (LMAO) - literally!

As I celebrate this momentous, once-in-a-lifetime occasion, I am lightly reflecting on my life, enjoying the moment to relax and relishing in the love I am receiving. Reaching 35 was a little rough on me, but so many women lament on how the 40s are wonderful and to embrace every minute. With that advice in mind, I plan on doing just that.

I'll share the journey with you whether it's ups and downs or goods and bads - we'll do it together and I know I will be okay. This past year has been difficult for me, but I can say I am finally in a place where I know myself better and love myself more. No, everyday isn't easy and the stress can be overwhelming, but I can and will survive... One day I will reach more goals I've set, look back and relish in the lessons I've learned and feel complete satisfaction in who I am.

Right now I continue to learn, grow, experience and love... and that is enough. Who I am is enough and today I'll enjoy just that.

Wow! 40! Let the celebration begin...
