Each year on my birthday, I post an annual birthday photo… and today I’m celebrating 46.
I think this year, more than ever, I’m feeling more comfortable in my skin. That’s the funny thing about aging – we are supposed to try and ignore it as long as possible and stay a fresh-faced 25-year-old. However, to be honest, my mid-40’s has been awesome.
I feel confident in myself. I know my worth in both business and friendships. I value those people around me who ‘fill my cup’ and prioritize them.
Sure, I love my fancy lotions and serums, but I’m also okay with the laugh lines. I enjoy my daily (and sometimes twice daily) outdoor walks for not only exercise, but the chance to just chat with my kid on the way to the bus stop and my husband after a day of work.
I have a closet of clothing that fits my body, and makes me feel comfortable and fun and sparkly.
So, for my 46th birthday, if I were to make a wish while blowing out a candle, I’d wish for happiness and health. And some extra money for our savings accounts.
