This year I had my 39th birthday and it was a happy one. This blog of mine made it one of the happiest birthdays I had in a long time. I am more true to myself now that I am older. I never had an experience quite like this one. I thank God for the successes I had in my 30s. I am a 39 year old lady now. I have to woman up. I am never going to really be able to change even stupid mistakes of my past. I am a volunteer and I was employed part time for a few years but I hope to be able to just become a children’s book author and I will be taking the Praxis Core exam again. Once I pass the reading portion of the test I have two essays to do and forty multiple choice questions. They gave us an overview of the test. I was given advice to take one part of the test at a time. There is reading, writing and math. I know I can pass the reading and I studied for an hour this morning. I am also reading L is for Lion by Annie Lanzillotto.
I now see my successes as something to really celebrate.
