I am feeling a bit overwhelmed today. Yesterday I celebrated my 50th Birthday. This milestone has had me reflecting quite a bit, and also basking in gratitude.
I was so touched by the outpouring of love and all those who made my day so very special (check out the gorgeous flowers from one of my besties).
Since the actual day fell on a Wednesday, I’ve planned a celebration for Saturday. However, I had decided months ago that on my Birthday I’d design my perfect day.
It included spending time with people who give me great joy, authentic conversation, caring for my body and spirit, engaging in activities I love, and choosing to be present and happy in every moment.
I got to wondering why I don’t do that more often. Ok, getting a facial on a Wednesday afternoon, or having wine at lunch (yep, I did both!), is not going to be a regular thing. But the rest of it…. finding what and who lifts you up and choosing that, well why not?
No need to wait for a big Birthday to do live intentionally, fully, and by design.
Sounds like a good plan for the next 50!
