This is the BIG one! I swear I was just 26, now we’re here. I thank God for all his blessing and covering me these 40 years of life. I’m a little emotional celebrating this birthday. I know you’re probably thinking I’m having a hard time adjusting to 40 (well kinda) but I am so happy. I am happy that I have health, love, and friends. I know where God brought me from…. I could shout right now.

I kicked off my birthday weekend with going to see my favorite group, Wutang Clan at the A3C festival with my girl Danielle and Kia. I got my entire life and it took me back to memories of when I first discovered the group. I felt like this would be my last chance to see the group without looking like someone’s grandma in the crowd.
Sunday, Mister organized a birthday lunch and invited my girlfriends and their families. We had such a good time and the kids had a blast.
Today will be a laid back day. I’ll be heading to the gym and a massage later. I shouldn’t but I may cook dinner tonight because I’ve eating so much junk this weekend, my body is craving a home cooked meal…. and Mister does not cook.
It would be easy to list all my accomplishments in my life but I am most grateful for my mental health and happiness. As I reflect on my life, I am reminded of the dark times and how God protected me and brought me out. I am truly happy. Happiness is hard to find because you have to find it within yourself, it doesn’t come from material things. I learned in my 30s, happiness is a choice and you have to want it to find it. I will continue to choose happiness. Cheers!
