I’m turning 42 and I’m actually pretty psyched about it.
First of all, I am now the answer to Life, the Universe and Everything.
Douglas Adams, author of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Universe reminds us “in large, friendly letters” – Don’t Panic. I’ve got this awesome mug from my cousins that I use every day to remind me!
That’s just the first part of it, though.
That means that, at 42, I am leaving behind one life cycle and beginning another.
And this life cycle is one where my kids are gaining independence and freeing up loads of time for me.
It’s one where my living spaces are more tidy and organized than they’ve ever been; same goes for my mental spaces. There’s breathing room there.
This life cycle starts with a foundation built for my business which is steady and strong. I’m at a place where I feel (finally) capable of sharing my gifts and wisdom with others in a way that feels not only sustainable but sustained.
I’m experienced, too. I’ve lived. I’ve learned – mostly about myself and what makes me tick. And I’ve figured out how to apply that knowledge pretty damn well; life is a hell of a lot better lived on those terms.
So, yeah. I’m 42.
It’s National Disaster Day, too, but a friend on FB suggested I reframe it as “Act of God” Day, pulling in the holy and blessings.
It’s a year for that, too. Accepting the blessings of life, making room for the holy. Amen!
