Life Lessons

This is where this blog began with the 39 lessons I learned before I turned 40. During this process, I reflected on how I got here. Writing these lessons allowed me to reframe parts of my past and to look to the future with optimism!

Supportive Community

This has been a real joy - looking around at and appreciating the wonderful people around me who make life enjoyable at any age, but especially at 40. These posts speak about the power of community - particularly diverse communities. Surrounding myself with people from different places and cultures has truly enhanced my life, increased my empathy and shaped my understanding on the world.

Personal Reflections

Internal reflection was also a part of this process. Looking at my values, motivations and beliefs, and increasing my self awareness made it possible for me to make changes in life; to let go of beliefs that weren’t serving me and to take action in the face of fear! It even allowed me to write my book!
