Y'all. I turned 40 today.
Okay, technically not until 10:21pm tonight, as my Mama likes to remind me.
But, today is my 40th birthday.
And I'm having a blast!
30 kicked my ass. I've mentioned that here before. It was a very hard time in my life, and turning 30 in the middle of it was like kicking me while I was down. And then punching me. And then setting me on fire.
But 40? Piece of cake. (literally, my mom is making me a pineapple upside down cake. Yum!)
I think it's primarily because I am happier now. And as most of you know, it's NOT because my life is perfect. There are, without a doubt, things I would love to change about my life.
But happiness does not mean your life is perfect.
This is what happiness is to me -
And by accepting, I personally do not mean accepting that things will be the way they are now, forever. What I mean is accepting things as they are NOW, and working hard to change the things that I want changed.
I am an innately happy person, and I am grateful for the things that I have, instead of always lamenting over the things that I want and DO NOT have. That's just me.
And that will be me, whether I am 30, 40, 80, etc.....
But right now, I am FORTY. And I am ROCKIN' 40!
Happy Mother's Day to all of my Mamasita friends!! xoxo
