A friend told me once that when you turn forty you begin to cross things off your list. You rethink whether or not you will have children, if you will move, where you will work, if you will study anything new.
I’ve been thinking of what she said now that I’m closer to 40 than 30. I’m not ready to cross things off my list but certain things are beginning to seem more important than others.
I know I want to close some chapters and move forward. I understand that I cannot move forward without making peace with my past. I still have a little ways to go to be in a good space but I’m getting there and beginning to look forward to the road ahead.
