Countdown to the big 4-0!

In 13 days I will be 40. I wanted this year to be extravagant. Or at least not the same as always. I purposefully opened my eyes to my failures and what makes me tick.

I’m lazy and entitled.

I’m not a goal setter.

I’m a trend follower.

I’m a kindle reader that collects self-help and Christian authored books.

So, to celebrate the last remaining days of my 30s, I decided to really write. I love writing. If I could be paid by letter (and backspace), I’d be rich. Instead, I’ll stay middle class and share with you each day a little about what I’ve figured out/identified/enjoyed. I’ve failed at “Write 30 Days” already, so I’m halving it and taking away 2….

First off, I had to start with my letter to my children. It’s a post I should write every month but I rarely make the time to do. It is posted here. I don’t think I give my kids enough credit for having to live with me. My letters to them make me stop and appreciate where we are and what we have worked through. I need something to make me stop and see life as it flies by. These letters serve that purpose for me.

My dream is that Michael and Katelynn will go back and read these during those years they are no longer living with me. Maybe it will help Katelynn survive having her own mini-me when she reads my struggles. Or maybe she can read it and be reminded just how much I really love her. My kids are by far my greatest accomplishment and I’m only about half-way through. 

However they use the letters, it will make me happy. Because at least someone will be reading my words.

  1. Hey there! Quick question that’s completely off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My site
    looks weird when browsing from my iphone 4. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this issue.
    If you have any recommendations, please share. Appreciate it!
