...is nothing like i thought it would be. I don't mean that in a bad way, mind you, i just mean that i am in a place that i never thought i would be lucky enough to be in. I have a amazing husband, who makes me challenge myself to become a better woman. I have a little daughter, who has managed to teach me more in 4 years than i ever thought possible about life and love.
It's a blessed life, this life i have...
...and i am grateful beyond measure.
The most stunning thing i've learned lately is how little i truly "know" me. Oh, i know what color i like, what things make me smile, but i don't know why some really important things like: how to live a daily life that is on a path of improving my spirit, mind and body. Even at this age, there is still so much to learn and how it's never to late to start striving to live the life you want. The ending of each of our "dashes" hasn't happened yet and i have finally learned that every moment that happens in our dashes is important and worth having. But you know, it does take a lot of effort to live in our dashes but this is our only journey and we don't get 'do-overs'.
The Dash is truly worth living.
btw, the "dash" is the line between where you were born and where you die.
Yep, that's "the dash".
I'm sure that you've heard about it before.
Recently, in a class that i am taking, we read Hebrews 12:1-3. It has now become a favorite scripture of mine.
"...let us throw off every thing that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles and let us run with perseverance the race marked out before us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus...so you will not grow weary and lose heart.
Yes, forty-six is a good place for me. Tough at times, insane at time, happy experiences at times, bad choices some times, but so worth it now that i am here.
I am where i am suppose to be.
Happy Birthday to me!
