This is it. The last week of my 40's. I have to admit, I'm feeling it this morning. But that may just be a Monday thing!!
Time for a bit of self-reflection. Just a tiny bit...I've seen too many people get so deep in to their self examination that they get stuck there and don't move forward.
Am I where I thought I would be at this age? I can honestly say no as I never pictured being this age!! With that being said, I'm pretty happy with where I am. That's not to say there aren't challenges and bumps (mountains) in the road. I'm looking forward to my future. I have goals I want to attain, people to see, and places to go. Bring it on!!
I am so incredibly blessed to have friends in my life that love and support me. I have fabulous children and grandchildren. I have two gorgeous rescue dogs who own my heart. Life is good. Life will get better.
I have to admit that turning 50 isn't bothering me as much as I thought it would. Hell, I'm happy I'm still here! And so my journey continues...onward and upward!!
