40 Life Lessons I’ve Learned in 40 Years of Life

Happy 40th birthday to me! Each year on my birthday, I find some time to reflect on how I’m doing. I take into account my dreams and goals and the progress I’ve made towards them in the last year. I also take inventory of where I am physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. This year, since it’s kind of a big, round, significant number, I also recorded lessons I’ve learned and things that are really important to me that I want to teach or model for my children.

This exercise turned into this episode and I’m so excited to share it with all of you. It’s hard to be so open and vulnerable with my life experiences, but if this episode helps one person feel better or motivates anyone to just keep going, then it is 100% worth it. I thought it would be difficult to come up with 40 life lessons, but once I started brainstorming, I came up with way more than 40. I discarded some of the most obvious ones like be honest, forgive others, do more of what you love and things like that, then I smashed some together and saved some for a later episode or course, especially the ones about marriage, parenting and other relationships.

I hope you enjoy this episode. It was a labor of love.

If any of you are wondering what I want for my 40th birthday, I’ll tell you. I would love a rating and review of this podcast, specifically this episode on iTunes. Or, you can reach out in any number of ways: email, Instagram, Facebook, Google or on my website and let me know if you are getting anything from my podcast. I’d also love to know if you have any suggestions for future topics or guests. I love a good challenge, so guest recommendations are my favorite, even if they seem out of reach. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for listening and for your support!

She does it all including raising 2 wonderful kids, running a very successful company and hosts her own podcast called, Pulling Back the Curtain with Natalie Hodson. In our interview, Natalie talks about how she found the strength and courage to do it on her own and shares her tricks on how to get started and be efficient at whatever it is you would like to accomplish.
