I turned 42 today! I was rather low-key about this milestone. My 40th birthday was more of a celebration. I'll save the next extravaganza when I embark on my 45th year on this earth. As I reflect on moving further into mid-life, here are some thoughts:
- I actually truly feel cute! I made peace with my lips, my tits, my body and my hips. I am grateful to accept myself in a way that allows me to navigate, with self-love, the moments of feeling the ups and downs of seeing yourself.
- I am extremely grateful that I have developed a relationships with my nearest and dearest where I brave being honest about myself . I show them the madness and they have returned love with no judgement. In this honesty we have found many moments when we say to each other "you too!"
- I'm still excited about experiencing that loving someone allows learning from seeing that person raw and real and smiling about the gift you are given. The gift of seeing realness gives me a connection to that person, and the ability to understand my own life-journey.
