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!
