Today is my birthday and apparently it’s a biggie. As of 8:10 am eastern time this morning, as this post became “live,” I officially turned 40. The big four-0. Four decades of life. You wanna know what I have to say? Big deal! Unlike many of my friends, turning 40 isn’t some traumatic event or life-changing moment. To me, it is just another birthday, another year that I’ve “made it through.” I guess part of the reason I don’t feel it’s such a big deal is because in my head I don’t feel like I’m 40 or at least this is not how I think of someone who is 40.
The family got together this past weekend to help me celebrate 4-0!
