Recently my sweet friend Shannon blogged about how she is soon going to turn 40. As I read her post, I also started thinking about myself turning 40. I have just under a year and a half and I will hit that milestone.
Wow, the Big 4-0.
I am more than likely about half-way through my time on this side of Heaven.
Age is something that haunts me. I remember being terrified of turning 15. 15 can you imagine? I have no idea what was so scary about it now, but I was really scared. I am not talking about being a little nervous about it; I had full blown depression over it.
I look back at 15 now and think – Wow that was the beginning of a great couple of years for me.
I was in high school. I did a lot of traveling with band and girl scouts. I had a great group of friends and really enjoyed life.
As I am facing 40 soon, I am starting to get a little nervous again. I can only hope that as I move closer to that date, I can see that it will be a great time in my life.
Currently I have a great group of friends in my life, and I have been doing a lot of traveling in the last 2-3 years.
So instead of letting it haunt me, I am going to try to look forward to having a great couple of years and really enjoying life.
