This week I‘ll be celebrating my 40th birthday. OMG!!!!!!!
How did this come about and where was I sleeping while all these years flew by? … Only god knows. Anyway, mentally – I‘m only 28.
Birthdays like these are considered milestones. On such an occasion, most of us will stop and take the time to conduct a vicious list of ambitions and achievements they‘ve yet to fulfill, and then there are those who will go through a crisis. My ”midlife crisis“ occurred when I was 36, by the way. I always was ahead of my time ;-)
I had quit my job and gone off to chase my dreams. In retrospect, that crisis was probably the best thing that ever happened to me.
Tomorrow I will be celebrating my 37 birthday.
This is a great opportunity to be thankful for some really good genes and also for a magnificent family, who runs cosmetic and beauty salons… or as my mom always says: “You need to know who to be born to” ;- )
I don’t know to what conclusion you’ve reached in your last soul searching, but for me, it seems I must be smarter than I’ve ever been, more honest with myself and much happier.
