Another year older !
This is 45
The new year of 45 has arrived.
I must now close the door on 44
See what this new chapter has in store
I wish I could say I have it all figured out but that would be a lie
I still have dreams and goals I hope to achieve
And many places I want to see
Remember when 40 seemed so far away..
Today middle aged feels so strange to say !
Somedays, I sorta still feel like 20, can any other forty year old relate?
I don’t have any regrets for where I Should, or thought, I’d be
I have my health, a home and one beautiful family
Sure the grey hair is poking through
I have body aches from parts I never even knew
I see new lines on my face that are starting to appear
Will I suddenly look different after this new year?
I try to listen more when spoken to,
I’m working on giving myself grace
Think of where I was and who I am today
My daughters love me and tell me everyday
My husband still looks at me like he did that first day (with a side of crazy)!
I am grateful for the path my life has taken and what I have learned along the way.
If 45 is the new 35 then this is where I want to stay!
