“Our truest life is when we are in dreams awake.”
― Henry David Thoreau
A few years ago I started the silly idea of doing a portrait of myself every Birthday…so my kids would look back someday and there would be some documentation that I was actually a real person not “just a mom”. That they would remember me being full of life, that I was joyful, fun, I was living a happy life. Funny thing is, I am the one that needs the reminder. I went back a few archives and quickly ran thru the old Birthday posts…and I am glad I have them now. Memories are important to me…good ones even more so. Some people recall their entire life, clear as a bell. Not me. I need a photo to jog the memory. This year I am just glad the Birthday arrived and that I am healthy after a hard Summer and weird health problems. I feel young, I feel good. I guess I am ready to put the 40’s behind me now~ I’ve been hanging onto 49 like nobody’s business. So many highlights in my 40’s…I felt liberated and really hit my prime at 40, my kids were into all their school activities…graduations happened..new beginnings…I mean it was packed with memories. I loved the 40’s…but I am not sad about 50 like I thought I would be. I feel like there is this road ahead and its wide open. I have my walking shoes, so I don’t need to run. 🙂 I am going to start out by receiving all the love and kindness that comes my way, going to let go of the things that bother and upset me. Today is a new chapter. I am crossing over the line~
ok…so I am a little hesitant…
it will take a bit to sink in…
inspire and share.
