Turning 40

No fancy celebrations or presents. It was a quiet celebration this year  spending time with the people who matter to me. Moving into a new phase of my life the 40s has been a milestone for me. The last few years of the 30s had been rather chaotic with countless changes that the kids and I had to go through with.  It has been really a roller coaster and I’m glad that I’m off that crazy ride  peppered with monsters that led nowhere.

My priorities in life have been re-aligned and am loving what I am currently perusing and the course I am on.  All the planning , hard work and endurance for the past few years is slowly paying off.  It is only up from here.  I’ve finally completed the year long course that I embarked on last year and will be receiving the certificate for it come Oct. Learning is a lifelong journey and I’m slowly crossing out all the courses that I intend to complete within this 5 years.

Be gone to all those unwanted people mentioned in the poster above.  My boundaries have been reset and there is now no allowance given to people who do not consider mine and the kids best interest. You can say that I had enough of tolerating all the nonsense that those idiots were throwing at me.

I’ve done away with all the flying monkeys and their hidden agenda to cause pain, damage and chaos to our lives. These monsters have been shut out of our lives as nothing they do has our welfare at heart. Always out to manipulate others for their selfish desires and to feel superior I had enough of tolerating their crap and have chosen to walk away and shut the door to them.

The kids and I are enjoying the peace that has resulted from that decision and we will never trade that away.  Peace and Quiet is not something that I will trade away easily now that I’ve finally manage to achieve it. We are moving forward at our own pace and slowly crossing off all the goals that we have achieved.

I don’t need to seek validation from others nor do I need to deliberately dim my light so that I do not outshine others.  If the person is truly your friend and concern about you he will support you and not try to tear you down.  The only person who I should seek approval from is GOD and do my best to live by his design.  I know he has our best interest and will lead us through the obstacles that we face here on earth.

The best present I received is my freedom from toxic relationships and also regaining my security. I’m sure  the remainder of this year will be a blast for the kids and me.
