Do you see a theme here? My “news” will stop after this one, well maybe. Honestly today is my 40th birthday and I don’t feel any different today than I did yesterday. I don’t feel 40 but then again what is 40 supposed to feel like? Many people say I don’t look like I belong in the 40 club and I take that as a compliment. I certainly don’t want to look older than 40 but I really don’t think I’m a good judge of how old people are based on how they look. I usually always get it wrong when I try to guess someone’s age.
Some days I feel old and tired but most days I just feel normal and grateful I can do what I want most of the time. Soon I’ll be expressing that 50 is the new 30 but not for another decade. I wonder how I will feel a decade from now? Last decade I was planning my wedding and my life with my new husband. This decade I’m working hard so I don’t have to the next decade and I’m enjoying being an Auntie to my favorite little nephew. I’m also enjoying being a wife, sister, daughter and friend to my best support group in the entire world. The people with me today are the same people that were with me a decade ago and I’m hoping these same people will be standing next to me all through this decade and many more to come. I have surrounded myself with an incredible support system and the love they have for me is overwhelming. I in turn would do anything for them and I say my Namaste for each and everyone of them.
I spent the morning of my birthday at a 6am Bikram class and honestly there was no where else I wanted to be at 6am. As the day went on I spent it with my husband, another place and person I wouldn’t want to be anywhere without and later I’ll see the rest of my family. I’m an extremely lucky person and honored to be loved so deeply.
