This summer I turned forty. It’s the biggest and best birthday I’ve celebrated yet. It’s also the most eye opening. I am no longer a thirty something. I am now in a new category of life and even closer to fifty! Ouch!
In truth, I am so grateful to have made it forty times around the sun and can’t wait to see what life has next for me. I’m secretly hoping to explore the United States more and camp my way through Colorado. I also have ambitions to learn how to ski again. Only time will tell what’s in store and I’m ready for it.
There’s something about how I’m feeling today. It’s slightly different than usual and I want to explore share my thoughts with you. I’m actually writing this post from my iPhone so bear with me as I dig a little deeper…
Yesterday I had a semi-stressful day because I was dealing with a graduate 👩🏽🎓 group assignment that’s been hard to organize. It’s Thanksgiving holiday so who wants to study?! Also, a romance interest of mine went dark.
I think he disappeared into outer space.
Between balancing emotions and rational thought about either topic I didn’t want to loose myself, to not feel exactly what I needed to so I asked myself “Do you feel anything? I was surprised to discover that I really did, aside from the frustration of either scenario.
So in love with pastels not just because it’s spring but because they’re borderline intoxicating.
