40 Years and Back to Unstoppable!

Today is the day that this mom turns forty years old. Some call that over-the-hill. Others say 40 is the new 30. For me, forty is good. I am at a place in my life where I am happy and excited to continue moving forward. I have two amazing kids, a wonderful man in my life and a great plan for moving my life and work onward.

I am one of those people that is excited about getting ‘old’. Since my twenties I’ve been thinking of the things I can say and do when I’m in my 70s and 80s. Each year I figure I can get a little bit crazier and it’ll just be written off as ‘advancing age’. I guess that’s the biggest thing that each year teaches…be yourself.

When I was a teenager, I was very much myself.  I felt unstoppable with ideas and opinions and grand plans. Then life happened–not that life was bad, it’s exactly as it should have been. But while trying to be what I thought I was supposed to be, I lost some of that unstoppable-ness.

That life that happened (and is still happening), it has taught me. I think now at forty, I’m feeling a bit more unstoppable again. And, since I’ve experienced some of those ‘life happening’ events, I’m much better equipped to remain unstoppable.

Here’s to forty amazing years, and another forty+ crazy ones to come!

Happy November 29th Everyone!

    Good for you! Since vacationing at an indoor waterpark, I have been having a hard time coming to terms with my body image and the signs of aging (http://writeonjana.com/2011/11/14/vanity-unleashed-how-comparisons-damage-self-image/). I sincerely appreciate the positive attitude as I find my way (and learn to "own" my unique style). Happy Birthday!

    I don’t know about you, but I’m in way better shape now than I was in my 20s…I saw that pic on your post and Lady, you’ve got great looking arms and back!

    Despite my physical healthy being better now, I still have a stockpile of dark brown hair dye and plenty of creams and lotions 😀 I will say, once my natural color is completely white, I might start going with more festive colors, like pink or blue ;D

    Thanks for the birthday wishes!
