Imagine! Posting 100 days of life lessons until I turn 40! I have had this idea for almost a year now. It reflects my love for "listicals"-- both reading them on Facebook and sites like Buzzfeed, Atlanta Black Star, Madame Noire, and Bored Panda and creating my own as I did with First 100 Days in the UAE in 2016 and 40 Days of Gratitude for Lent in 2017. 100 days until I turn 40 or #100daysto40 is both a birthday gift to myself and an invitation for you to celebrate with me. Through these posts, I will share with you the scary and fabulous things I have learned so far on this road called life. I have been going strong so far and today is Day 89. I am gearing up for this new decade by trying to live fabulously and adventurously. I am truly thankful that I am getting ready for my 40th year of life. As a cancer survivor, I have come to know many young adults who did not make it to this point or used 40 as their "goal age". I also remember there was a time in my early 20s when I just "could not see past 30". It was a strange, depressing, and desperate place to be. Today, I know there is so much I need to work on and learn about myself but I assure you my #100daysto40 is not preachy. I think of them more as instructions for life just as much for me as it is for me to share with those who wish to know. This series is also telling of my foray into other genres. I love and will always be committed to children's books first but I am also adding spoken word, travelwriting, memoir, playwriting, non-fiction, and romance to my arsenal.
