On Being 40(ish) | Lindsey Mead
post image

Finishing up this book today. Also, hi 👋🏻

I had a lot of intentions for the year I turned 40. Climbing Mount TBR. Completing #192019. Being up on birthdays and #jb correspondence. Reader, I failed at all these things.

I still intend on answering my #justbecause mail. I‘ll read what peaks my interest. But I need to not be so hard on myself when I don‘t make goals.

What intention did you miss the mark on this year? What did you learn?

AmyG Every year I try to be more patient. I try to worry less. I did accomplish the “worry less” part a bit....things will be what they will be. And at patience....I do better at some times than others. We all fail as It‘s part of being human. Just keep trying. I‘m doing thr “On Being 60ish”. Just the # is a challenges. Yikes...when the hell did that happen? (edited) 1d
Librariana I don't think I set any for the year I turned 40 😳🤔 I think I'd just rather be pleasantly delighted/surprised by what I accomplish and grateful for the things that happen. I think I've gotten better at setting realistic goals (when and if I do) rather than setting the bar too high and then being disappointed. Above all, I try to be gentle with myself. I hope you will be, too 😊💗 23h
marleed Omg, I‘ve missed so many. But I try to pay attention to what I accomplish and not to track what I miss, just let it go. I‘ll add the misses back to 2020 - like getting and using a passport! 22h

Wow, I am just beyond grateful for all the love and birthday wishes I've received through the kind and generous souls of #LitsyLove and #JB. It's still over a week until my birthday and I've been showered with cards and most unexpected, presents! You are all so wonderful and sweet! I've had a stressful week and coming home to all of this love has just made my week. Thank you all times a million!!! 🥰💜❤🧡💛💚

Kaylamburson @Jee_HookedOnBookz I am so touched by your very full package of goodies. I cannot wait to read Chalk Man, use my scented pens, stickers, bookmarks, cards, and I adore Starbursts! You truly made my day. It was so unexpected, and as I opened the package, I just kept finding more and more goodies! It was like a Mary Poppins bag!! Haha. Thank youuuuuu 💜💜💜💜 3d
Kaylamburson @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @TheBookHippie I couldn't wait, so I opened the gift pre-birthday, and I'm so excited!! I've been wanting to read One of Us is Lying forever now!! You guys are amazing 💜💜💜 3d
TheBookHippie @Kaylamburson awe!!! Enjoy!!! 3d

Crazeedi I hope my little card made it too!! So glad you have such wonderful surprises!! 3d
Kaylamburson Thank you to the surprise card from England! (At least I think based on the stamp and postmark). I will have to properly thank you once I know who sent it, but I'm following strict instructions to not open until October 26th! You never want to mess with that birthday magic! 3d
Kaylamburson @Lovesbooks87 I think I included you in another post, but I'm just so grateful! I love the happy stickers and it's a "whale" of a good bookmark ?. Laughing at my own jokes, haha. Thank you!! 3d
Kaylamburson @UwannaPublishme , I can't wait to respond to your wonderful card. So sweet of you to send me a birthday card and the goodies inside. I love the mini fortune! "Happiness is not in our circumstance, but in ourselves. It is not something we see, like a rainbow, or feel, like the heat of a fire. Happiness is something we are." John B. Sheerin. That's so true and definitely something I try to live by. Thank youuuu!!! 3d
Kaylamburson @Jas16 you are wonderful and so so sweet of you to think of me! I'm loving our #LMPBC and so sad it's almost over! 3d
Kaylamburson Aww thank you, @Crazeedi !! So sweet of you! I don't think I got it yet (unless you're the yellow "not to be opened until 26th October card), but NYC is notoriously slow at delivering. I'm sure it will arrive soon! Did you send it recently? I'll keep an eye out! 3d
UwannaPublishme Thanks for sharing the great quote. I never get to read them, but I see you received the exact one meant for you. 👍🏻 Keep celebrating and having fun. 😘❤️🎉🎂🎁🎈 2d
Kaylamburson Scrolling on my feed today I came across LitsyLove cards with handwriting just like my special yellow international one. Is it from you @LapReader ?? Thank you so much! I'm excited to open it on my birthday. I'm following instructions! Haha. I also know people hate when you mix-up England and Australia, so so sorry about that! 🤦🏻‍♀️ 2d
LapReader Nope not me but happy birthday anyway. 2d
Kaylamburson Lol, the handwriting looked so close. Thanks, @LapReader ! Also I love to know there's another pole dancer and reader on here. I also love the fitness activity! 2d
Jee_HookedOnBookz Omg YESSSSSS! It arrived this time! Doing my dance 💃🏽💃🏽Woot woot! Enjoy! ❤️ Have a great birthday, Kayla! 🎉🎂🎊🎈😘 2d
Kaylamburson Yesss success!!! Thank you so so much!! 🥰🥰🥳 @Jee_HookedOnBookz 2d
Jee_HookedOnBookz @Kaylamburson you're so welcome! 2d
Jee_HookedOnBookz ❤️❤️ 2d
Kaylamburson I got your card @Crazeedi !! Thank you so much!! I love the quill-like bookmark, and I can't wait to respond to your letter 💜 14h

Just a note to say that I'm opting OUT of #JB, but staying IN #LITSYLOVE and #JBUK. However, if you were IN #JB and I've tagged you above I'm keeping your addresses as we've become friends!

It's not that you're not all my friends, I'm just struggling with who is in which group!

I'm keeping the pile of addresses on the right! 🤣🤣🤣

CatLass007 So glad you‘re keeping me! 😘😘😘 3w
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Awesome 💗💗 3w
Chrissyreadit Yay!! I need to leave JB too- I thought I would get cards done, but I‘m overwhelmed by the numbers. I‘m glad you‘re keeping my address handy ❤️😘🥰❤️ 3w

I just looked and can't believe it's been 4 weeks since I have posted. I'm sorry. I've been a bit depressed. My surgery was postponed 3 times. It's finally tomorrow morning (gotta be there at 6am). It'll be a quick procedure and I'll take it easy over the weekend and want to be back on Litsy regularly. I miss everyone! I picked up some things at Target today, including some cute cards for #jb and #LitsyLove mail. Hope everyone is well!

AmyG Hope everything goes as planned tomorrow and that you are feeling better soon. 😘 1mo
Catsandbooks I know the struggle of depression. If you ever want to talk I'm here! 😊Hope everything goes well with your surgery! Sending love 💕 1mo
tracey38 @AmyG thank you! 💜💜 1mo

tracey38 @Catsandbooks thank you so much. I have a lot of anxiety with this surgery. And the depression of not feeling well for awhile now has been a lot. 💜💜 1mo
Catsandbooks @tracey38 yeah not feeling well really takes a toll on your mental health. Remember to treat yourself kindly and take each day as it comes. I remember some days all I was able to do was get out of bed and brush my hair. And that's OK. Just keep going. Hope you get some relief and can feel better soon! ❤️ 1mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks You have my number! I know about depression too... call anytime 💗💗 🙏🏻 for you tomorrow ❤️ 1mo
JoScho Sending you so much love and well wishes for tomorrow! 1mo

With back to school and my mom having surgery and helping her with her recovery I got behind on my #litsylove and #jb cards. But this weekend I was able to sit down and write all 21 amazing Littens back. Thank you so much for all the cards over the last couple of weeks. I really appreciated it. They were all sent out this afternoon!
