It's true. I am now 40 years old ... well, I have been 40 since August 5, 2017. I threw myself a party surrounded by family and friends; it was a great time and one that I will always remember (and will always thank my parents for graciously letting me use their house!). There are so many great things about turning 40; in fact, I recently sat down and wrote out a list of 40 things I have learned, experienced, finally understood, enjoyed ... since I turned 40. Would you like to explore my list? Of course, you do!
That is a GREAT question. Where HAVE I been? My last published blog was April 11, 2017, which was 353 days ago. Wow. Let me first start by saying I did not take a trip to space. I did not set out to discover if the world is flat then fall off the edge. Nor did I crawl into a hole and hibernate for the last year. In fact, I have been right here in Salt Lake City living life and discovering more and more what it means to learn how to be. But over the course of the year I have done some traveling to see family and friends, and in those travels, I've had moments of great clarity. I love clarity, don't you?
"Do Not Disturb" signs are awesome when you are staying in a hotel. They are not awesome when they are hanging around your neck! Nothing I am about to write is original content. In fact, it is straight out of Joyce Meyer's mouth. She gave a message called Do Not Disturb Me Part 1: Living In God's Timing. I can't even remember what the whole message was about (hence I have included the link for my own refresher). But, I do remember her wearing a "Do Not Disturb" sign around her neck. It was a very striking image - one that will stick with me for a lifetime.
