Transformation…

Transformation happens when you least expect it to, but be guaranteed that it does happen. Just when you think you won’t ever get to a place in your life you need to be at or when you think you can’t possibly change your perspective on something, you suddenly do. I remember feeling like my 20’s were the worst! Things were never going to change, my outlook on life couldn’t possible change, and then I turned 30 and all of a sudden I felt like a completely different human being.

Now that I am 40, my perspective on life which include but are not limited to marriage, friendships, parenting, love, life and everything else have completely transformed. I now know that the things I used to stress about in my 20’s or 30’s right now seem so minuscule. I now know that I can and will get over hurdles despite me thinking at the time I could never. I now know that everything does dissipate and that there are reasons for everything that may have transpired. Life is so strange, just when you think you are content, there is not much more you need, you have conquered more than you thought you would have, something crops up and transforms you in a way you never thought possible. Just when you think life couldn’t get any worse, just when you thought you may have gotten through the worst of it, something happens and completely transforms your outlook on life. Both these good and bad scenarios have happened to me at different stages of my life, but I only started appreciating both sides now that I’m older. Now that I’ve reached over half of my life expectancy, my perspective has done a complete 360!I also know that when I’m nearly 50, I will probably look back at my 40’s and feel the exact same way I do about my past years…
