I have just 6 months left in my 40 before 40 Challenge I created for myself. I have completed 11 of the 40 and am working weekly on several others. Yet, others, I haven't even started. But, if I don't have something to work towards and be held accountable to, I may never have accomplished any of these to begin with. If you haven't seen my list, click on the banner above, or click HERE. To find out why I wanted to create this Challenge, click HERE.
I am already thinking about what I am going to do when I actually turn 40. What new things do I want to do, work on, create, complete? I have some ideas!
I just don't want to be that person who wakes up one morning and says, "Who am I?" "What am I doing with my life?" I may not have a career or wake up every morning with a plan or focus for my day, but I do (usually) wake up happy, blessed, and thankful to be here. Ultimately, isn't that enough? We don't know what the future holds, but I certainly am going to try to live each day with a spring in my step and a smile on my face.
I'm a mom of 3 who stayed home and now have entered the world of substitute teaching. I also help run an after school program at our church, give storytime at our local library, and volunteer for other charities. I look forward to our monthly book club and I love to read. I am devoted to my parents and doing whatever I can to help them and give them what they need. My husband and I just want to give our kids a balanced, healthy life and show them the importance of giving back to others and our community.
