I am sitting here on the eve of my 40th bday (PT time I am 40 in NJ)! And, I am over the moon excited to embark on a new chapter of my life!
I can still remember celebrating my 29th bday (I believe) it was a murder mystery dinner in the city (NYC). I remember being so excited for my 30th! I went BIG for my 30th! I celebrated all month long! It started with my actual bday in Vegas (awe Bena was living there); it was a perfect blend of NJ and CA framily! Followed by an AC (Atlantic City) celebration! And ,MANY others in between. Wonderful memories, for an amazing milestone!
To be honest, it seems like ions ago, but at the same time it feels like a second ago.
I think my 30s were pretty fabulous! I made amazing lifelong friends, had great experiences, fabulous memories and some loss and bad times too. I learned a LOT about myself in my 30s! I learned how DAMN strong I am, how resultant and tenacious (thanks, Kim) I am! I also learned I am capable of so much forgiveness and LOVE! Oh yeah, and I moved to SoCal – a major dream I had for 7 years prior to making it happen!
I also forged my deep and loving relationship with Jesus in my 30s (love me some, Jesus!). I grew my faith, and my network of support!
I approach my 40s with open arms! First and foremost I know God has my back! I have no regrets! I have an open heart full of love. I am so excited to see what God has in store for me! He is moving me and using me in such amazing ways! I can’t wait to be able to share it to hopefully inspire you all!
So, good-bye 30s you were wonderful, but I am on to a fabulous, more confident chapter!
