41….where did the year go? I think I learned a lot about life and have become more comfortable in who I am as a woman, a mom, a friend. Something happens when you turn 40 and it’s a really good thing. I love that most (not all) of my insecurities are no longer an issue. I love that I am comfortable with who I am and I no longer feel the need (for the most part) to please everyone. I love that I have my few close friends who support me and encourage me not because they want something from me. It is simply because they believe in me. I love that I am becoming more confident in my role as the “captain” in this family. I love that my children look at me and I can see they are proud of me and they love me for me. I love that I know I still have growing to do.
So for those of you who are dreading the big 4-0, I am here to say it is a wonderful year….embrace it! I am looking forward to what 41 has in store for me.
