From Milestones to Memories: Celebrating Life at 48!

Happy Birthday to me! 🎉 Can you believe it? I've hit the big 4-8, and you know what? I'm feeling absolutely fabulous! Well, apart from my knees deciding to throw a little tantrum every now and then. But hey, who's counting, right?

If you had told my younger self that being 48 would be this amazing, I probably would have laughed. But here I am, living my best life and loving every minute of it. There's something truly magical about being in your 40s, and this year feels extra special.

Sure, my body might not be as spry as it once was, but you know what? That's okay. Because I've come to realize that my body shape doesn't define me. It's less about short-term vanity and more about long-term maintenance. And let me tell you, that shift in perspective has freed up so much time for me to focus on what really matters: my emotional well-being, my relationships, my mental clarity, my career, and my spiritual growth.

Over the past few years, between running Guilt Free Food and tending to my family, I've noticed my social wellness taking a bit of a hit. But you know what's been my saving grace? My incredible friends. They've stood by me through thick and thin, showering me with love and support. And while I may not always be physically present, I've learned to be authentically invested in my relationships. It's a lesson I'm still learning, but one I'm committed to mastering.

Losing my job was a blow to my ego, but it led me to discover my Ikigai. Guilt Free Food isn't just a business; it's my passion, my contribution to the community, and my source of fulfilment. And I owe it all to the resilience and wisdom I've gained over the years. They say life begins at 40, but for me, it feels like life is just getting started.

And speaking of starting anew, I've embraced the art of learning and trying new things. From becoming a mother to running a business and mastering the art of baking healthier desserts, my 40s have been filled with memorable milestones and exciting adventures. I once read from somewhere that we gauge time by memorable events. The more such events, the slower time seems to pass, but because we often have fewer new things to remember as we age, life seems to speed up.    My 40s has been truly memorable with all the new learnings.  For me. life isn't about growing old; it's about growing whole.

So here's to another year of laughter, love, and endless possibilities. Cheers to 48 and all the adventures that lie ahead! 🥂
