There are 37 more days until your 40th birthday. And no, you are not getting fat and old as you claim. But one thing you are getting to be more of:
You make a conscious effort to try every day to better yourself. You recognize your areas of weakness and are constantly working to improve those things about yourself.
You try to be aware of how your behaviors affect the people around you, demonstrating your compassion towards others. Thank you for being willing to listen to constructive criticism. Your herculean efforts are greatly appreciated. Your strength and perseverance in this area are amazing.
