countdown: Lordie Im 40
Updated: Nov 26, 2020
Yup...the countdown continues! I have 3 more months til FO'TEE!! EEEK!! I have been gathering a lot of insight of women over 40 because I am curious and interested in how they felt when they hit this milestone. What have they learned and what they'd do differently. As I near the end of my 30's, I will say...my early 30's were a blur. I don't remember too much from my early 30's. I spent 35 waking up on an island while enjoying modern family on a #dragcruise and now here I am lol.
I feel grateful to have made it this far and even greater to have my health n mind given the current state we're in. I know the pandemic has put a damper on a lot of plans we've had for this monumental 2020 year but I honestly can't complain! The hiatus I've been forced to take makes me reflect more than ever. My knees randomly crack now if I get up too fast, I swear I felt my teeth shifting one morning-ugh!! There is a beauty in aging that I am feeling as the weeks get closer to the day...I feel there's a shedding that's happening and I can't articulate it into words at the moment but every week a different layer drops. The layers of myself in what I've learned throughout my time on earth n layers of unlearning as veils from my past dropped. There's an art to less is more that's said to be addressed-trust me, I'm on it haha. Y'all know what my next countdown to fo'tee will address....this gawd forsaken dating life **cue horror screeeeam** so stay tuned for next month's series-this shyt is crazy!
