09 Jul Celebrating the 5-0 Birthday!
Happy Monday friends!
That’s it. I am now half a century old and I am ok with that. I think as long as I keep moving forward, what’s the problem?
I thought since I am now 50, I would write 50 things about myself you may not know. Or… 50 things about turning 50 that isn’t so bad.. I’m kidding, kidding.
There are so many quotes about the downside of aging, others a bit more inspiring. I am of the mindset, that turning 50 doesn’t really bother me. I am not thinking “50 is the new 40” either. I am just thinking, I am happy that I am in better health than I was 10 years ago. The thing about blogging, and being surrounded by amazing, supportive women at midlife, is that the attitude wears off on you! I belong to the Fierce 50 group on Facebook, and women are there to support, challenge and empower other women. I think that is great.
It would only be natural for me to take a look in the mirror and notice some of the changes between 40 and 50. A few more lines near the eyes. Less volume in my face. Things like that. I am not looking to change much, just continue to be the best version of me I can be. I think the satisfaction of getting older, lies in the comfort and confidence I feel in myself. I am not saying everything is peaches and cream, but I think attitude has a lot to do with how one feels about aging.
I know I am grateful that my health has improved over 10 years and will continue to practice wellness and healthy living. Menopause or Peri ( dont know which at this point) has been tough with side effects and has certainly affected my emotions. I am seeing what I can do about that.
