It’s Here! My Birthday! I’m 39 today and I feel like I should be feeling all the feelings. You know the ones. Those big ones. The I’m officially 365 days away from being 40. Whoa! The who am I, where am I in life, what do I want from life kinda feelings. The adult feelings. Yet instead all I keep thinking is: Happy Birthday To Me!
Happy Birthday To Me!
Yup! I woke up basically singing it in my head! It’s my Birthday! I’m 39 and I’m super happy. I’m happy with who I am as a Woman, Wife, Mother and Friend. I’ve grown over the past 39 years. I’ve found my way through the awkward years, made my way past my rebellion and finally found comfort in my nerdy, quirky and at times wonky personality. I’m me. It took nearly the full 39 years (okay minus those few where I was just drooling, crawling and learning how to talk) to get here but I made it. So why not sing a bit of Happy Birthday To Me?
This Is Me . . .
This is me. Getting to a place where I’m not only okay with who I am but I like that person – it hasn’t been easy. I think becoming a mom helped me become comfortable in my own skin. My kids look to me for provision, protection, support and encouragement. How could I give those things to them when I lived most of my life denying them from myself? Being a teen mom forced me to not only grow up but grow into who I wanted to be as a mother. For that I am grateful. On day one of my 39th year I am grateful for every struggle, difficulty, set back and win I’ve had. Why? It’s simple. Without all the bad and the lessons I learned I wouldn’t be the person I am today. Today – the first day of my 39th year. This is me. I like her. I love her. I am her.
Then Comes 40 . . .
Next year I turn 40. That’s kind of a biggie when it comes to birthdays – from what I hear. So what will I do to celebrate? I honestly have no clue. Maybe next year I’ll have a few of those big thoughts. Who knows? This year? This year I’m simply enjoying the blessing that is my life, sipping on my coffee and singing in my head: Happy Birthday To Me!
