Today I turn 40 and I’m a mediocre person leading a mediocre life.
I’m grateful that at 40, I recognise that something’s always gotta give and I’m willing to be mediocre–by the world’s standards so I can savour life as a daughter, wife, mother and most importantly as a child of God.
I’m grateful, to be given the opportunity to play the different roles in life. I tell myself I don’t have to strive to be exceptional in any of them because perfection can only be found in God alone.
So today I turn 40, with no career to my name, with no abs to show in lululemon but I feel a sense of peace and tranquility away from the noises of this world soaking in the love and joy that my little family envelops me in.
