This is my first time setting up a blog like this, so I’m a little lost. Please forgive the wandering lady, and the mess of unedited headers and “blocks”. I guess this means I’m officially old if I can’t figure out technology. I will figure it out eventually. I hope.
This leads me to why I’m creating this page, and that is to document this mighty adventure I’m on of *gasp!* dun, dun, dun…turning 40. And of course, the years after this impending milestone. I have a year to go and the journey is expected to be fantastic.
When I was a child, I remember my parents turning 30 and it seemed sooo old! I look back on the last nine years and I realize I was just getting started on life. Now, at nearly 39 (less than 48 hours to go!) I know that the number is just that – a number. It’s really all about how much life you put into your years and nothing to do with how many years are in your life.
I have a “40 List” of the things I want to do in the year before I turn 40. Some of them are practical and on the list of things that every responsible adult should probably do by this point in life. But a lot of them are things that remind me I’ve still got a lot of living to do and right now is the time do start doing it. There are things that scare me, things that challenge me, things I’ve always wanted to do but forgot about, and things I want to do because I’ve recently been reminded of all the dreams I had when I was younger and set aside for the past decade. The list isn’t complete yet, but it will be in the next two days. And then it’s go time.
P.S. I promise to figure out the layout and editing…some day.
