40 Things: Part One

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!

Tired Much?

Imagine someone sitting in a staff meeting who missed the last three minutes of discussion because they fell asleep with their eyes open. And it's not that the meeting is boring, it's because they only got four hours of sleep the night before. Can you relate? I certainly can. Many a time I have been at work and barely able to keep my eyes open. This is why caffeine was invented if you ask me. But why am I so tired? Well, perhaps a look at the evening before could be most telling.

What to Write…

... when you don't know what to write. I'm so excited to have faithfully published a blog every Tuesday since the start of the year. And each week I have been hit with the inspiration stick so it's been fun and relatively easy... until today. I have no idea what to write about. So I asked my husband if I should write about what to write about... and well, you know his answer. Dog stuck in watering bucketThis does lead to me think about what it feels like to be stuck. Do you ever feel stuck? Not necessarily stuck for words, but stuck in thought, action, inaction, etc. Maybe stalled is a better word. I have been stalled all day. In fact, I didn't even officially start my day until 6:30 p.m. this evening (that would be Monday evening, emphasis on MONDAY). Do you ever have days like that or am I floating on this cold, stuck, stalled Monday evening iceberg alone?
