I try not to judge myself or compare myself to other people.

I am celebrating my life older. I didn’t know I would have cool experiences older. I am forty now. I look forward to the rest of my life. I appreciate my family and friends. I try to take the focus off of me. Sometimes I need a few down days. I will trust God and try to stay on course. I am glad to say I am comfortable in my own skin. I embrace being who I am and not someone else’s idea of who I am. I believe God put me on earth for a reason. I feel like my life has a purpose. I am able to make a difference where I am. I am learning how to drive. I hope I can get a pre-owned car by December of this year. I am going on a driving lesson today.
