A little piece of 40! #359

Daily painting #359. 6"x6" oil on primed canvas panel

I have had quite a few people ask me how I feel about turning 40. Quite frankly it feels no different to any other birthday and I certainly don't feel like I am about to hit a major (midlife) crisis....nor do I feel like life is about to begin (apparently life only begins at 40) ! Actually I have a feeling that tomorrow (today by the time you read this post)  will feel pretty much the same as any other special day surrounded by my awesome family! I am quite sure too that the day after will feel pretty much the same too! I am glad I am not buying into the whole "life begins at 40" story or I might be setting myself up for disappointment! I think what I am trying to say is that I am really quite happy with how life is treating me right now and I don't think it has anything to do with age and everything to do with choices.....to choose to be happy and grateful is a fine thing! Long may that last...regardless of my age! So tomorrow I will celebrate a coming of an age feeling grateful for all that has passed and hopeful and enthusiastic for all that is still to come!
