Lessons On My 40th Birthday

Me and the Fam! I have news. A few weeks ago I celebrated my 40th birthday. It was my second COVID/lockdown birthday and I wasn't even sad about it. I'm not a huge birthday bash kind of girl, so not having to break the news to everyone that there would be no crazy party felt sooooooo good.  I've thought a lot about this post. About turning 40. What do I want to share here to help document this milestone birthday? When my kids look back and read this online journal so to speak, what do I want them to know about what I was thinking on May 11, 2021? And here's what I came up with: On celebrating my special day: COVID birthdays aren't so bad as an adult. Sure they suck shit for kids (can't have a party, can't see their family and friends, hardly any presents because said parties are a no-no). But for me, as an adult, I understand why I can't party it up with like 50 of my closest friends and family members. I understand that a Vegas trip is out of the questi

Lessons for my Soul

This year I promised to stop making excuses and to stop putting things on my invisible wish list - and just start doing the things I “wished” I could do. Like reading again. My oldest kid will be 10 this year, and since we’ve started our family I can list on one hand the number of books I’ve read. Before kids, I was a reading machine, and I miss it!

So for 2020 I’ve committed to reading 6 books - and I’ve already read 2 and I’m just about to start my third. More on those books later 😉

Next on my list was to make my health a priority as well as to be grateful for the things that I have. I’ve been doing a good job so far - I joined Weight Watchers and have lost almost 6 pounds in a few weeks. I’m more mindful of what I’m eating...but if I’m craving something like chips or a burger I eat it and try not to feel guilty! Baby steps!

Did you make any goals for the year? It’s never too late to start, share your goals in the comments below.
