I’m turning forty-two years old. It’s feels different than I expected. I’ve changed so much this last year–and I’m ready to welcome this next year with open arms.

I’m learning to listen to my heart even though sometimes she speaks in a quiet whisper.
I’m practicing speaking my mind–even when I make waves.
I’m beginning to understand the importance of self-care (and that I can do it without guilt!)
In big, amazing ways I’m seeing with a fresh perspective that my three boys whom I adore, also adore me. And I’m beginning to believe in a new, deeper way that I am worthy of love and adoration.

At forty-two I’m learning how to simply be me in new and powerful ways. It feels humbling and empowering.

Today, on my birthday, I’m slipping on the adored ring as a reminder that I am loved. The X and the O represent the beautiful, imperfect, enduring love that surrounds me. And that is definitely something to celebrate. Thank you for being an important part of my journey–I’m thankful for this community!
