When you turn forty, I think it’s normal to step back and take stock (after, of course, the realization that you’re now FORTY! sinks in.) In truth, I’ve seen more hardship than most people I know. Each circumstance drastically changed my life for the worse. It’s actually pretty depressing when you throw in all the unhealthy choices I made to boot.
Good thing those are only the facts. God has since opened my heart eyes to see the actual truth permeating those facts. He has always loved me thoroughly, He has never left me alone, and I (the real Carrie) am enough. I am rich in experience and compassion for others and filled with an appreciation for the small joys of life. My circumstances are still uncertain, but they no longer dictate my well-being. The next forty are gonna be a blast!
