Turning 50

Thursday, March 21, 2013

Woke up this morning and nothing has changed, so it is just another day even though I am now officially 50 years on this earth. I have no idea how this happened; all when I wasn't looking I guess.

There have been ups and downs, wins and losses, love and heartbreak - all that makes this so far a full life when you look at it overall. Right now I am in an excellent place in my head.
I succeeded in making some major changes I challenged myself to a couple of years ago, to get them done by my 50th - quit smoking, check; go back to school and change careers, check; get healthy, working on it; celebrate and recognize my successes and stop criticizing myself on a daily basis - still a work in process but oh so much better than I was.

My promises to myself moving forward - try not to slide backward on any of the above, continue my learning and always move ahead in my new career, and do what I can to put a smile on as many faces on a daily basis.

Onward and upward, Happy Birthday to me!
