Yay! It’s my birthday!

Today marks my 37th birthday, although I’m telling everyone I’ve turned 29 – again!

I think back to when I was 29 and am amazed at just how far I have come. A few months before my 29th birthday I walked out on my marriage after 9 years of verbal and emotional abuse, so things were looking a little scary at that time.

Since that day 8 years ago I have lived life as a single mother, I eventually met my husband who I married three years later, started my own business, gave birth to my baby girl and now here I am, celebrating my eldest daughter’s 11th birthday (she was born on my 26th birthday) along with my own.

Tonight I am going to write down 10 of the things I am grateful for. To attract more good into our lives, we must first appreciate what we already have:

  1. My husband
  2. My daughters
  3. The fact that the storm held off until after my daughter’s birthday party!
  4. The wonderful friends who have contacted me today to wish me a happy birthday
  5. The rest of my family – just because they’re my family!
  6. My beautiful home (it’s got a pool, which kept the girls busy today!)
  7. The internet, so I can continue to work from home
  8. My business contacts who have been so supportive
  9. My mentors
  10. Avocados – they’re my current favourite!

I can’t believe how fast the last 37 years have gone, and I look forward to the next 37, although I know I’m going to live long past that!
