40 Days from today I will have completed the first 40 years of my life.
It is both depressing and exciting! I’ve been reflecting on my life in decades. HA! The first decade was “strange”. It included time as a grade school child with my parents, grandparents and Aunt & Uncle. I was moved around a bit from birth to 10. With that comes lots of memories. I think this was around the time of my first concert. Michael Jackson! It was great. The second decade was “colorful”. It’s crazy that from age 10-20, I have memories of swimming with friends, playing with Cabbage Patch Kids and then becoming a mom. All in the same decade. Decade number 3; it seems the music stopped. It was time to grow up and have grown up experiences. The 20’s were fantastic, destructive, wild, sad, hard, loss filled, stupid dumb ridiculous fun! The most recent decade, the 30-40 has been “indescribable”. Let’s just leave it at that.
So, in preparation for my 40th Birthday, I am launching my own Private Party! I have decided to live completely on purpose over the next 40 days in hopes of continuing this practice for the rest of my life, or at least for the first year of my 40s. LOL I want to focus on ME and MY happiness, growth and well-being. So here’s how I will begin. Below you will find my list of 40 things to do in the next 40 days. Again, this is MY party and of course, I can cry if I want to!
Join me on my Facebook and Instagram pages over the next 40 days as I post pictures and share experiences. I won’t do these things in any particular order, so you will have to pay attention as we go along. I invite you to join me! Complete some of these activities or all of them and be sure to share and include the #40to40 hastag. Think of it as your little bday gift to me! :)
