Whooohooo birthday bash! Here I am celebrating with my life long gal pals in Ojai-they spoiled and pampered me with spa treatments, fabulous food ( check out the peanut butter/chocolate birthday torte – sumptuous!!) and loving friendship (the best gift of all!).
I thought I would be depressed about turning the big “5-0” but nothing could be further from the truth….I woke up feeling zippy, happy and blessed to be alive – to have lived to see 50…what fabulous experiences I’ve had thus far. I can’t wait to see what this new chapter and decade will bring…such a privilege to be on this planet!!
Feeling this way helped me get it – see the truth…life…a good life…is purely about perspective and attitude – looking at life as a gift puts the spring in your step and the sparkle in your eye, ALL day, EVERY day!
My five favorite birthday gifts:
1) Gratitude- give thanks for everything in life, all experiences (good and bad – how else do you grow??)
2) Love – Family, friends and Self… nothing trumps this connection.
3) Health – a positive mind and outlook keep the body feeling fantastic!
4) Adventure – makes you feel ALIVE!
5) Grace – the beauty and blessings of life!
50 does feel like the new 30 – nothing like a birthday to make you live life to the fullest with total appreciation – Yes!!!
