The BIG 40!

This week was amazing but it did not go the way I planned it.  I had planned a quiet week with tears and sobbing into my cake while I turned 40 and proceeded with the first of what I could only assume would be many midlife crises.  I had panned for this.  I was ready…but it never came, and so I am contemplating what comes next.

I have decided to spend my 40s becoming awesome.  I want to learn to surf before my bones are brittle.  I want to have adventures and travel with my kids before they can make the decision in the matter.  I want to fall in love with my husband all over again because that just sounds cool.

What ever I do in my 40s you can bet I will not be napping.  🙂

One year to prep for my midlife crisis

This month I turned 39… I mean 29.  Yep totally 29… damit 39.  Turning 39 wasn’t nearly as hard as everyone makes it out to be.  Apparently all you have to do is wake up and it happens.  Just like that!

Anyway, it feels like it would be better to reflect on my life now than a year from now.  That way when I turn… 4 0 I will not be startled by all of the empty whiteness of the page I list all of my accomplishments on.  The good news is that I recently started reading  The Happiness Project and I have a plan.  It may be an unrealistic to fill my blank page in the course of a year but I can become a better person over the course of a year.  I didn’t say it was a realistic plan.

To do this I am going to steal Gretchen Rubins plan… more or less.  I am going to work on one thing every month to make myself a better person.  Then even if I have a white piece of paper on my 40th birthday, I will know deep down inside that I am the best version of myself.

Month 1: Get energized by eating better, getting more sleep and decluttering my life.

I foresee a couple issues with this month.
