...I'll be 40!!! Yep, it is true. I am not as young as I used to be. I actually started thinking about how I want the decade of my forties to be. At 40 I will have children that are 10, 8, 6, and 2. At 49, they will be 19, 17, 15 and 11!!! What do I want to accomplish for them, for myself, for my marriage? I will be posting every so often about the goals and plans I have for the next 18 months. I feel like it is time to really focus on what matters most. I spent my 30s having babies. I spent my 20s figuring it out. I want to spend my 40s living a satisfying life.
A few broad goals:
Deepen my relationship with God
Make time for my marriage
Create a solid family bond
Have a healthy lifestyle
Develop organization systems for the household
Create some business pursuits
Be debt free except for our house
Learn to spend my time wisely
Create a happy loving home
All this in 18 months???? Maybe not, but I can hope to focus more on these things in order to have the life I have always wanted.
