i just now realized that i turn FORTY in 6 months.
and yet somehow it feels just about right. so many changes, shifts and awakenings have been happening this past year, i now feel like it is all meant to be just as it is. a preparation of sorts. closure to this decade of my life and the beginning of a new one. in my 20's i took so much for granted, worked hard and had fun. my 30's was full of many ups and downs, i am ready to send them off. i am hopeful my 40's will bring me closer to a place of inner peace and balance. A new chapter for my family as all our kids will now be school age. A time when my creative life takes flight in ways i have not even dreamed yet. i am not feeling panic at the thought of this new number, instead i feel a bit excited as i type out these words.
my hubby and i have been embarking on much healthier eating habits lately. we bought a juicer, i love it. i have a mini goal to try and reach by my 40th birthday. if i come close i will be so very pleased. my husband also turns 40, 2 weeks before i do. we have dreams of a mini adult getaway to celebrate properly. i hope we can make that happen. he and i have only had 1 kidless vaca in 15 years together, and though i love my children, i also relished that vacation he and i took solo so long ago.
so let the countdown commence. the clock waits for no one. 6 months and counting...
40 here i come.
