40 here I am
On March 10th, I turned 40 years old. For this milestone, I celebrate with a trip to Miami, FL. I am still in disbelief how fast time has come and gone. Looking back on the last 10 years of my life, it is amazing how much has changed. When I was 30, I was married, living in an apartment, still looking for a career to make me happy. I did not feel happy with my marriage, with my career, or with myself. I was living to just get through another day. Over the past 10 years, I discovered myself. I discovered talents I never knew I had. I discovered my love for me. I learned to never put your happiness into some else's hands. If you can't be happy alone, how are you going to be happy with someone else. I learned to love me and if I want change I have to change my way of thinking. I always stayed positive. I had great support from family and friends. I never gave up on myself. I pushed myself to want more in life. I learned to let go and let God deal with situations and people. There are so many things I wish I knew when I was 30 even 20, but now that I am 40, I understand that I needed to go through the trials and struggles to make me who I am today. Here's to 40 years of life, and praying for 40+ more years to come.
