I don't make resolutions, although that is what some people MAY call it.
What do I want to do this year? I want to be Fabulous and Forty.
No really, anyone who knows me knows that I ADORE my birthday, I am not one of those that say "oh it's just another day" or "uggh, don't remind me"
I didn't have a problem turning thirty, And I'm not going to have a problem turning Forty!
Especially when I have a huge smashing "Fabulous and Forty" birthday party in September. And you are all invited!
I am talking 5000 of my nearest and dearest! Ok well not that many, but still. I want all my friends and family to come and be fabulous with me.
I had two surgeries on my face, one in 2009 and then again in 2011 to remove cancer that left me self conscious about how I look and how others look at me. And you know what? I'm here, I'm alive, and I'm not going to worry about them, and after a lot of time, they don't actually look that bad.
I busted my butt and lost 30 lbs last year and hope to lose another 10 lbs before my birthday. Because I want to be that woman that my husband is proud to have on his arm, the woman who is so stunning that he just walks around and says "Yep, that's my wife, she's fabulous and forty"
I want to be healthy and live long enough to see my sons live their life. I want them to be proud of me, I want to be able to run with them at soccer practice, to practice Karate moves with them. And I want to be Fabulous!
So is it a resolution? If you wanted to call it that you could. For me I'm calling it a way of life! A life I can't wait to get busy living!
