40 and Beyond
I have also been thinking about how I want to handle to 40s. A top priority is to take better care of my health; both physically and mentally. I have a long family history of diabetes, obesity, high cholesterol, etc. I don't want to go down that road. I figure it is about time I start taking these things seriously and try to avoid them - especially since a lot of them are lifestyle related.
I also want to make sure I utilize my time in ways that are productive and fulfilling. As the kids are getting older and I only have more more class to take, my schedule is starting to open up. I am really reflecting on how I want to spend it. How can I make a difference? What sort of work do I want to pursue? Where do I want to put my volunteer time? I feel blessed that our family is strong and I want to make sure those bonds stay that way.
Any advice for the new decade? I am very much looking forward to what it brings!
