Life lessons can really kick you in the butt sometimes! I don’t know how it happened because it all went so fast! I didn’t think I would ever be here.
As a child, I remember thinking about how it seemed so far away when in reality it went by so fast. The old adage is true that each day goes by faster the older you get. I always thought I would “have it all together” by the time I was 40. I definitely don’t have it all together. But I do have a lot to be thankful for! Turning 40 is a great time of reflection! It reminds you to look back at where you have been and what you have overcome! Although I am still trying to learn a few simple childlike behaviors (like finishing my dinner plate) there are several things I know now that I wish I would have known 30 some years ago to make my life easier.
I’ve learned you’ve got to slow down and appreciate the little things that life brings to you. I’ve been knocked down by Satan and let him have power over me for certain periods of time. But you know what else…I’ve had so many intimate conversations with my Lord and he has pushed me to be where I am today!
What are some life lessons you know now that you wish you knew as a younger self? If you were going to write a letter to the next generation, what would you say to them? Even though I am celebrating 40 “old” years, I will proudly proclaim that “I’ve only just begun!” I’m ready to make the next years of my life beyond amazing!
Create the life you love!
