My 45th Year and Tranformation~

12:30 AM
Hello Lovelies!

Today is my 45th birthday.
It's funny because for the past several years, actually telling people my age has been a bit difficult for me.  I have felt like being in my 40's somehow made me old.

It's not true, you know.  The number of years you have been on this planet, is just that.  A number.  And age is just a number.  It really doesn't define you.

And finally, now that I am turning 45, I've become pretty excited about it.
My 45th year is a big deal to me.

I even have a theme for this year...


I have always been a goal setter.  And this year, my big goal is essentially a total transformation!
When I say that, I don't mean that I'm going to go out and get plastic surgery.  Nope.
What I mean is that all of the goals that have been floating around in my head are finally being worked on.

I know what you're thinking.  That sounds maybe a little bit **too** ambitious.
I kind of thought so too at first.  But I've found something interesting (because I actually started this big transformation idea a little while ago).  The more ways that I am trying to change for the better, the easier it is for me to accomplish them.

I think it has to do with self-discipline.

Self-discipline is HARD.  And by no means do I consider myself to be an expert in it.  But I have found that when I am trying hard to be disciplined in one area of my life, it kind of crosses over into other areas as well.  So I figured, as long as that seems to be the case, why not work on a bunch of things at once.

And the interesting thing about that is... it actually gives me more motivation!  I am happier than I've been in quite a while  because I have so many GOOD THINGS that are occupying my time and thoughts.  And I can literally see the improvements in my life.

I'll post more about individual facets of my big year of transformation as time goes on.  And I'll share more about the individual goals and the ways they are changing my life.

But for now, I'm going to go celebrate the big 4-5 with my kiddos...
