Well...the day is finally here....at 6:30a.m. EDT I will be 40 years old. I am actually excited about reaching this milestone in my life. The start of a new decade is to me like a start of new possibilities. I reached this age at a weight I am not healthy in so my first challenge and possibility is to lose this weight to make myself healthier before major things begin to go wrong with my health.
Secondly, at the end of this decade I will have 30 years service with the government. So, I have the possibility to get education/training and investigate new career choices for the second half of my life.
There are two more choices that my husband and I will make together in this decade of mine and that will be where to settle down and whether to adopt or not before we reach the age of 50.
So, I am looking forward to all of these things in the next 10 years...10 years that I know will end of flying by way to quickly. I moved away from Georgia in 2000 and as I look back at all of the places I have lived since then and what I have accomplished in my career, well...I am amazed, that is all I can say...who woulda thunk it?
