Last year at this time, I was getting ready to make the trip of a lifetime to Cape Town, South Africa. It was my first trip overseas, and a “bucket list” moment to celebrate turning forty. That trip really started me on a year of self-discovery and acceptance. South Africa spoke to my soul. It taught me the true meaning of hope and forgiveness in the face of insurmountable odds. A book is being born out of that journey (a work in progress, that will be discussed later :-).
Now, I’m about turn forty-one, and there are no trips on deck this time. But, the blessed feeling still remains. Many people complain about getting older. But, I feel like a fine wine that gets better with age. I love aging. I’ve never felt this comfortable in my own skin. I feel like the world is clearer now. I know who I am, and where I want to go. That’s the type of direction we long for in our youth. However, I know that everything comes in time and order. I’m just thankful, that it’s finally my time.
I’m thankful for the possibility of another year, another opportunity to step into my purpose. Another chance to spend time with my family. Life is precious, and we should celebrate every year because that means our assignment is not done. There is still time to get it right. I look forward to many more opportunities to get it right; and I celebrate wholeheartedly another chance.
Until we meet again!
