I turn forty this week. It is a milestone I am eager to embrace. I know, we women are supposed to fight aging with any means possible, but not me. Bring it on!
I spent my twenties in a haze of parties and adventure. Oh the fun I had! I paid for that fun in my thirties. My thirties have been a decade of pain and frustration. After developing Fibromyalgia in my late twenties, I spent most of my thirties a slave to my symptoms.
But that is all changing. It started with this blog, and all the research I do to stay informed and up to date. Knowledge is power I tell you. I am learning more and more that I can feel better, and that there are things I can do to take back a measurable amount of control over my health. These are all resources and tips I have shared with you in the hundred plus posts I have written. I try very hard to practice what I preach, and the more I do, the better I feel.
So bring on forty. Forty is going to be my decade for health and healing, for wealth and wellness. I am ready for forty!
Pardon me while I spend this week celebrating. I have many things I want to share with you – like the great support group meeting I had last week attended by Lynne Matallana of the National Fibromyalgia Association. What a treat that was! But I am not going to be sitting in front of my computer too much this week. Instead I am going to be practicing yoga and meditation, going to lunch with family and friends, getting pedicures with my big sis, and honoring my health as much as possible to prepare for this next decade.
I am so looking forward to what forty will bring, and I am grateful to have this space and all of you to share it with. You are a gift I treasure each day. Thank you for taking the time to read what I write and occasionally leave a comment when the mood strikes. I appreciate you more than you know!
Happy Birthday to me!
