My 42nd Birthday!
Today is May 6, 2015 and I turned 42 years old! Makeup Maniacs, I am so grateful to have reached this ripe age. However, there are times when I think I should be in a different place in my life. More established. More successful. I believe this type of thinking is normal, and it keeps me growing as an individual.
I have always been a "day dreamer". As a child I truly believed I would be famous one day. At different stages of my life, I thought I'd do something great. Win the Nobel Peace Prize. Be the world's best child psychologist. Be the author of the great American novel.
Although I never achieved any of the above "goals", I am quite accomplished. I have a college degree. I have two children who are healthy, polite, and do well in school. I have a steady job, a loving husband, and an amazing extended family!
So, even though I have never won the Nobel Peace Prize, what I have and what I do is quite fulfilling. Happy Birthday to me!
