Yesterday was my birthday.  So many people wished me Happy Birthday.  I got texts, comments, calls, etc.  They obviously make me feel very good and even special.  Although I really don't acknowledge my birthday as anything very special anymore ( I mean when you turn 49, what's the excitement about that HAHA), I'm not against birthdays or anything like that.  But when you are younger, these birthdays are like gateways to becoming a something:  a teenager, a driver, an adult, a drinker, etc.  Then many hit those weird years like 25 where you "are supposed to be" on your way to your career, or in a big relationship and closer to marriage.  Or 30 where you should be in your marriage with your kids started.  And when these things aren't there, MASS panic usually ensues.  Luckily or not, I have hit those first ones and after all that, I wouldn't say that I am where I would have thought I would be if you would have asked me when I was in my early 20s.  But here's the thing:  there is NO right path or plan or mold of being this or that by this or that age.  Every single one of us is on our own path and although we might want certain things at a particular time, it just might not be our path.  There will be some things we will have more control of over and others we have ZERO control over.  So as I sit here one year from the "halfway point" of my life, I look back at all the highs and lows and what has brought me to this point right now.  And even though it might look a little different (or hugely different) than what I would have thought, I am happy.  I have two amazing daughters that are truly the lights of my life, a great family that's extremely supportive, a kick-ass pooch, a business that is almost 10 years old, amazing people that I get to see every day and help make their lives better than yesterday, the opportunity to travel all over talking CrossFit and help older athletes be better versions of themselves, I have my health and a place to lay my head.  Life really is good and I'm thankful for all of it.  Not a bad path at all:) 

FEEL THE BURN!!!
