Life's Lessons...
Well... here I am entering the last year of my 30s. It's been a great decade for me. I've gone through a tremendous amount of growth and change... very significant in comparison to the 20s! I've learned who I am. I've learned to love the skin I'm in. I've learned to love all of my flaws... and there are PLENTY! I've learned that I'm not perfect, nor do I have to be. I've learned to say "no" and mean it! I've learned that it's okay if others don't like it. I've learned that I'm a great mother and a great wife. I've learned that it's my own responsibility to make ME happy. I've learned that it's okay NOT to be a martyr. I've learned that it's okay to etch out some "me time". I've learned that it's not always about me. I've learned to put others first. And, I've learned what's important and what's not.

I'm going into this new year of my life with no sadness and no regrets. I'm going to live it up and look forward to turning the "Big 4-0" one year from now. May this last leg of the 30s, be as good (and better) to me as the last nine!

Happy 39th Birthday to Me!
