I have been thinking about writing a post on this topic for a couple of months, thinking I would have a lot to say on this topic. I recently turned 40 a couple of weeks ago and I wasn't sure how I would feel about it the milestone. Well, now that it has come and gone, quite frankly I really have nothing to say about it. I thought I would feel a since of sadness but you know what....NOTHING. I am happy to report that 40 is just a number and I have so much living to do and so much to accomplish personally. I feel like I have checked the box on family and my career. I now feel like I am going to devote a bit of time to accomplishing things I want to do more so on the creative side. Yes, of course my first priorities are to my husband and children and I will continue to focus my efforts there. But I am really talking more about things I admire in others and say gees, I could of done that. I am tired of saying that, I could write a creative inspired book or teach at a major art event....why not, right? I am at the point of my life that my motto is "keep on keeping on" sounds silly but I just said that at work the other day. I just want to live my life to my own set of standards and not worry about others. I guess I had a little something to say about it after all.
