43 ....

I woke up this morning having no idea what day it was and where I was meant to be! I blame all the late nights lately (I’m no night owl) and festivities (I’m no party animal) .
Maybe I can blame my age for this confusion and lack of energy?!
Yesterday I turned 43!

I've been thinking how fast time has passed me by!
….the days are long, the years are short…

Why spend time thinking about it anyway?
Our age is just a number right?  another year in this amazing world!

I still want to learn and find out about so much! I'm as curious as a young child, I'm visual and creative…
I want to connect, eat, feel, love and hold…
I might not have the stamina or strength of an athlete but I still have the energy for life experience, wonder about the world and all that it holds for me.

Hey I am now in the middle age of my life! (and this is why I freak out thinking I might be pregnant every month! eeek)
Middle age - for real?!
…yes real…
Its not that bad, in fact its fabulous....life truly feels great!
Ive always been with the attitude ‘the glass is half full’ – I’m an optimist and always hopeful that life only gets better!
Im SO comfortable with myself right now, my 20s were spent drifting, trying to fit in but still feeling like an outsider looking in, my 30s were spent trying to be great at everything - achieving, reaching always striving to be... (be what?)
we all know there is No ‘perfect’ picture.
My 40’s feel just right (so far) - I’m looking forward to the year ahead with an open mind and an open heart!
Wishing you ALL a fantastic year ahead – let’s make 2014 a Fabulous year!
I don’t really have any set resolutions.
I always want more time to be creative, to eat well so my body and health can thank me later!
I also want to start a ‘Healthy Food & Living’ Pinterest board – we all need a little inspiration.

  6. Happy happy belated birthday. I so love how you've described the 20s and 30s. I turn 40 this year and it's very much how I feel. I am a little bit at the end of how you felt about your 30s. Big changes and all that in the past year with work and other things but still, I am closer to feeling good than feeling stretched and strung out.

    Looking forward to what is in store for 2014! Have fun Anastasia. x
