So on Friday I turn 39....39 years old. In a way it is hard to imagine. I never that I would make it to 35 much less 39. I have been doing a lot of thinking. I am no where close to where I want to be. If you told me at 19 that I would be doing Accounts Payable and Payroll in 20 years, I would have laughed and said "Yeah right!" But that is what I do for work. Don't get me wrong I do love my job. I love the people I work with but am I absolutely in love with what I do? No I am not.
3 days ago I decided it was time for a change. I was talking to a co-worker and she made me realize that I was nowhere near were I wanted to be. It was time for me to finally to stop and think about what I wanted and needed. It was time for a lifestyle change. I need to do me. I thought about turning 39 and only being 1 year away from 40 and I feel like I have not achieved very many of my goals. So I have come up with 40 Things I Will Do Before I Turn 40. I am going to set fourth my goals and achieve them. They are in no particular order.
1. Continue on my fitness journey. I now think of it as a way of life not exercise.
2. Compete in a fitness bikini competition. I have wanted to do that since I was 19 so 20 years later it is time to make that happen.
3. Finally open my business. That is something I have wanted to do for like 15 years now. Better now than never.
4. Go on a date to the museum. Just walk around look at the art and admire it.
