Last weekend I celebrated my 44th birthday. When I was a child I thought 40 was old. I was willing to die at age 56 dunno. Why 56? I guess in my little head that age seemed ancient. Now I’m half through my 40’s I know there is so much more I need to do and want to do. There are so many firsts yet to achieve. If I ever learn to conquer my nerves and anxiety, mine would be a life lived to the full. Sometimes my fear and caution prevents me from moving forward, hence the 4 failed attempts at driving. As I stand on this side of forty watching 50 on the horizon (God willing), here’s what I’ve learnt so far…

  • Sometimes second guessing yourself is a waste of time and opportunities trust yourself to know what’s right, then… JUMP
  • It’s wise to protect your heart but don’t hide it too deep
  • Some friendships may not survive the coming of age process but that’s ok
  • Talking about the successes you’ve worked hard for is not being boastful
  • Don’t take life so seriously, laugh at yourself
  • Age is just a number, don’t use it as an excuse to avoid trying something new
  • Be excited about the future, not afraid

I don’t have it all figured out, but I look forward to living and learning. Life is a work in progress, so here’s to another 44.
