My unremarkable 40 years..

In case you didn’t know, I had a birthday yesterday.

I am now 40 years old. Crazy, right? Yep…

I don’t have anything exciting to tell you about my last 40 years…so I thought I would tell you about my unremarkable 40 years.

  1. I haven’t ever invented anything worthwhile. No cures, nothing to make life easier…But I did invent a game when I was younger called Run Around the Building. Sounds amazing, right? 😉
  2. I never did anything that merited a trophy or ribbon…
    But wait, I did get a first place ribbon for art that I made with shaving cream.
  3. I haven’t ever been on a sitcom or movie…
    But I was on the Wallace & Ladmo tv show and won a lot of Ladmo bags in the process! (I wish I could see those episodes now…)
  4. I have never left North America to do some amazing world-wide traveling…
    But we did spend a summer in the rv moving across country….and when I was younger we drove to Canada, ate lunch, and drove back to AZ.
  5. I never had an important job that changed lives…
    But I did have my own photography business for nine years that let me capture moments for people that they will now always be able to cherish.
  6. I never climbed the highest mountain with a lot of trials…
    But I did get lost on a hike in the AZ desert with only a little water bottle. Don’t think I will ever forget about that.

I guess I could go on and on with this list… but y’know? Someone once told me that you live the most remarkable life by living the life you have been given.

That’s all anyone can do I suppose!

So, I will go on embracing the ordinary, the mundane…cherish the moments that are simple…

And I will continue living my remarkable life. 🙂

    Happy Belated Birthday! I hope that your next forty years are just as normal as the first forty. There is a lot to be said about “unremarkable”. Bask in it!
