I am no longer a spring chicken.
I can no longer stay awake all night and go to work the next day.
I can no longer keep my eyes open past 10 pm.
I can no longer plan a weekend full of events and expect my body to attend each one.
I can no longer do many of the things I used to do. Well, that’s what my body says to me.
I am embracing my forties and looking forward to what the fifties will offer me.
I can juggle a career while raising a family.
I can attend my kids’ sports activities and mingle with the carpool moms.
I can fall asleep alongside my girls while listening to them read to me.
I can do many “mom” things now that I am older and wiser.
I can do all these things because I am a grown up and my mind can make my body do things it has to do.
