~Happy Birthday to Me~


Today is my 40th birthday.

Yay for Maisy.



I would say in the the last 5 years I have really become aware of how I tick.
The first 2 years I tried to changed everything.
The next 3 years I'm learning to really like myself.
As a matter of fact I think I'm hilarious!
(not sure the family would agree)

The first 40 years have been good....not great.
I will not settle for that for the next 40 years.
HECK NO!!!!
I have learned that if I want something I must get it.
I spent a big chunk of my life looking at others to make me happy.
That didn't work.
Today, tomorrow and all the days after that I get a "Do-Over".
I get to make myself happy!!!

YAY...for do-overs.
YAY....for happiness.
YAY....for me!

Hope you all have a great day....I know I will.

PS One of my gifts was an IPhone.
Help!!!!! I can't put it down!
Hi.....my name is Maisy and I am an IPhoneaholic~

Maisy -

Congratulations! I feel that 40 is like starting over again... always have... maybe even more so as I will be 40 in October and feel much as you do. Excellent post - I'll be hoping we are both having a glass of wine tonight to celebrate...

Merry Mack said...

Happy 40th! I remember it well. I had the best time in my 40s and I am sure you will as well.

Lori said...

Happy Birthday to you!! 40 is just a number ~ we met a couple of years ago and although I was not very fond of that number then, we have learned to get along. I love my 40's ~ I think I am more content. Congrats on the iPhone ~ I think I can see one of those in my future! Have a wonderful birthday!

Gloria said...

Happy B-day Amy! Trust me by 45 you just won't care anymore about pleasing people, changing or how much you like yourself..........it just sort of starts to fall into place......and obviously your feeling it.......40's and 50's are the best.......enjoy sweetie.

LillySue said...

Oh, I am late with my wishes but want to send them anyway....
HAPPY BIRTHDAY GAL!!!
I have not been online much lately....We are redecorating our great room and the new granite counter tops come Tuesday so I have been on a tight schedule with the painting. I just had to take a little break this morning and do some visiting. I have a birthday in a week or so too (46...yikes, how did that happen?) and am totally in agreement with you. I have learned so much about myself in the past 6 years and would not trade that growth for anything! I would not trade my wrinkles and wisdom to be a ditzy twenty something EVER!!
I know the next 50 years will be the BEST!
Blessings~LillySue
