... to forty. 40. 4-tay.
a drop in the bucket of the first six months of each of the previous 39 years. some of which I tried to capture on instagram via a photo a day for the 39 days leading up to my 40th.
|#fortytoforty the first twelve days|
|a good collection of pondering looks in this set|
|here, there, and everywhere|
|me and some ladies who are very dear to me|
I am grateful for this hobby it reminds me of all that has come before these last six months; despite life not always being easy - my life has been rich with friendship, ripe with fun, and most of all love. For me these photographs remind me I am valued, and I am valuable.
To this day Im not fully certain of what my purpose is in this life... maybe it is just to love the people who have loved me. I am pretty good at that. It's possible that in the next 30+ years I have an A-HA moment about my purpose. Regardless I will continue to be grateful for all the love I have been shown and I will do my best to pay it forward.
Technically still 39 in this first photo:
This one was taken later that day after the time at which I was officially born:
