It’s my birthday!
I’m 49 in calendar years but still feel like I’m 30. In my mind I’m always 30. I just don’t feel like I thought I would at 49, which I think is a great thing.That’s a gift right there.
It took me way too many birthdays to realize that the best gifts are sometimes those you give yourself. So here’s my plan for today:
Today I’m giving myself the gift of time. I’m going to go to my favorite kickboxing class followed by my favorite weight training class to celebrate 49 years as an asthmatic. I always workout extra hard on my birthday because I feel lucky to be able to do so.
Then I’m having lunch with a girlfriend to celebrate friendship. This would also count as celebrating the gift of laughter, because there will be plenty of that.
After that I’m going to work on my Quilt National submission to celebrate challenging myself and lifelong learning.
I’ll have a wonderful dinner with Bill and Sophie to celebrate how lucky I am to have a great family.
And then I’ll think about the next year. Any suggestions?
