Journey #70: Celebrating and Embracing The Journey

As many of you know I recently had a birthday! I have been waiting to turn 40 and it finally came. I would like to say that my friends did a fantastic job surprising me and all of the text and emails just warmed a sistah girls heart to the core. I am blessed around the world 10 fold. I have a different outlook on turning 40. I’m in the best shape of my life, Jesus is never changing, my kids are wonderful, my husband is awesome, and our family is my center. Life isn’t always easy. Things are always changing especially when kids are getting older, you and your spouse have resorted to sharing a calendar just to keep up with the each other. I like consistency and I am a planner. Lately, I have not been so good at keeping up with life so I had to take a break and “get my life”. I have re-evaluated some things in my life and I am the biggest factor is holding myself back. “Why”, you ask? I have had a habit of being an apologetic whore. I apologize for things I have no control over and even worse I apologize for being me. Well that girl has left the building. I am going to do the things that I love and enjoy and embark on new destinations and hobbies in life. I love running, scrapbooking, working out, shopping for workout clothes, blogging, kids, and growing closer to Christ everyday. This is what living is no matter where you are or the reason you are there.  My kids especially my girls are watching me all the time. I want them to grow up and be who God created them to be not who society says they should be and do. Even at 40, I need to take the advice that I give my children and friends. Life has a lot to offer and why wouldn’t I live it to the fullest? Look at me living and all grown up…
