I have moved ahead.

I am more confident in myself and in the people I love and my beliefs.
I am a very good judge of people, so much so that I can see right through you-even if I don’t know it yet.
I have no desire to age gracefully. I dont want to age at all.
I embrace what time has given me, knowlege and confidence.
I love a good argument.
I hate pessimists.
I also dont have tolerance of intolerance.
I am not a racist, sexist or elitist but, dammit stop fitting the stereotype.

Nothing has ever given my so much joy and pride as my children and family that my husband  & I have created.
I am thankful.
I dont care if people like me (which means yes I do), but it still hurts when they judge me wrongly.
I am opinionated but not pig headed.
I should rule the world. In Theory only.

I am a dreamer. I am not sure what to do with all of the ideas and passion inside. Really, I live by the statement, “You’re never too old to be what you might have been.” I have a very happy life. Part of that happiness revolves around a strong-although small- family, a rewarding career, the pursuit of a higher education and my unwavering loyalty to procrastination (won’t give that up to the very end, haha).

Speaking of youth (did I bring up youth yet?), I am very cognizant of my dwindling youth in calendar years since I am now, over 40 (dunt-dunt dahhhhhh- eek!). But anyone who knows me that my wisdom does not mean stuffiness of stiffness.

Mostly, I wish for greater understanding of myself and others, discovery of the world and parental & marital bliss. Oh, and a contagious sense of humor.

Just the tip of the iceberg
