Moving On

Rascal Flatts song "I'm Moving On" says a LOT!

My big 4 0 birthdy started out rough... I wasn't 'mentally' prepared for 40 this morning... and was working hard at 'holding it together'. I was okay (not FINE, but okay) til I read a birthday card that I found on my desk when I got to the office this morning. Everyone signed it and it was nice... although a few comments... (written in jest but not good for mental state at the time)... made me lose it! I hd to go to the bathroom... have a little cry then clean my face and take a couple deep breaths. It did get better as the day wore on though. I have some AMAZING friends I've found. When you're told you look 29 (Thanks Jen) and then later by someone I've not met in person "wasn't sure of the age but knew it was your birthday... happy 25th??" ... so then I got to thinking....

I've looked back at where I was 5, 10 years ago... talk about CHANGE! I look much younger now than I did then... I'm in MUCH better shape than I was then. One of my regrets is that I didn't take better care of myself THEN. Like the song says....

I've dealt with my ghosts and I've faced all my demons
Finally content with a past I regret
I've found you find strength in your moments of weakness
For once I'm at peace with myself

At last I can see life has been patiently waiting for me
And I know there's no guarantees, but I'm not alone
There comes a time in everyone's life
When all you can see are the years passing by
And I have made up my mind that those days are gone

so... I'm Moving On!
