14610 days old
all items remix'd
necklace: Tiffany's , gift'd
Wow, that seems even older than 40 years! I try to view every day as a gift and enjoy it as much as I can. Sometimes I feel a bit guilty about loving my life like I do, but really I don't have much to complain about.
Getting laid off last November was ultimately the best thing that could have happened to me at the time. I didn't have to work over the holidays and got to enjoy them instead of feeling burnt out and tired, like I normally do. I planned an almost-two month long dream trip to Mysore, India to practice yoga, which I never would have done had I still been working. I got called back to work In December so I knew I would have a job to come back to.
I am currrently working part-time and while not quite dictating my hours, my schedule is definitely more flexible. I feel like this has made me a better person at work and in life.
If you haven't yet figured out, today is my 40th birthday. Good grief, I definitely have mixed emotions about becoming a whole DECADE older. Aside from a few extra aches and pains that don't go away as quickly as they used to, I feel like I should be about 29. I am also hoping you can only tell my age by the wise look in my eyes, not by the wrinkles beside them :)
