Walking into the 4-0 was pure excitement for me, I had a new baby and a flourishing career. Then I was hit, after 1 year, with a separation, feeling I was done with an 18 year career, finding out I had lost who I was – my hustle for life; and just what to do next. Damn. But after picking myself up, understanding the choices I made, without anymore blame to another, I starting living and not existing. I looked back to the 20’s and grabbed the boldness and self-assurance that I had, mixed it with the learning experiences and growth of the 30’s and jumped feet first into a discovery of wisdom called 40+. Dreams are now reality.
