Shamelessly Feminine | #My40thF*ckingBirthday
Today is July 4th. Happy Birthday America!
Birthdays are often met with great joy and celebration. We love making our friends and loved ones feel good on their special day. I wonder though, how do you feel when it comes to your own birthday?
Me, I would rather it pass without notice. No parties or hoopla for me. I hate being the center of attention and getting older is something that sadly, I am struggling with.
Today marks one month until my August 4th birthday. I am turning 40! Fucking 40! How did that happen?
I am often reminded of 40 by my growing number of gray hairs, the struggle to stay fit, and the amount of time I say to my kids, “When I was your age…”. I always thought I would be the type to grow old gracefully. Accept the grays and wrinkles and enjoy them since they were earned.
Well, now that I am faced with my own 40th birthday, I only have ONE thing to say. FUCK THAT!
I’m not saying I won’t grow old gracefully. I just want to redefine graceful. I am going to own 40 and beyond in my own way.
Starting today and for the next month, I am going to post an image to instagram every day that represents how I feel at 40. What makes me #ShamelesslyFeminine in this time of my life.
No more hiding in the corner. This year, I am going to celebrate who I am! Follow me on Instagram by clicking HERE! I will be using the hashtag #My40thF*ckingBirthday
Happy Birthday America – After 239 years, you are still one pretty hot chick!
PS…I found these candles – I think they might just do the trick this year!
