It's funny....how turning 50 in a couple of weeks affects you. I love the idea..being 50. I don't see it as over the hill..or on the downside of young. I really like the fact that it feels more like being up on the peek and just sitting there for a while and soaking it all in. I really dislike when folks say things like..."Well more than half of your life is over!" Well maybe..but I prefer to think of it this way....there is so much more ahead..with all this stuff I have learned..how wonderful is that???
Folks want us to be upset by this milestone..your old..your getting wrinkles..gray hairs..sore joints...need glasses. Yup all of that..but I also have....soooooooo much more wisdom..so much more understanding..well..really just soooo much more!
Of course turning 50 for me..just like 35 seems to also mean looking back and reviewing. Which is a double edged sword. I am much closer to who I want to be in my heart and soul and in my art etc.. other parts of my life have been a huge surprise. Like that I am financially struggling still or that I don't have medical or dental insurance, or that I am heavier than I would like to be. BUT..I own a home..run three businesses, have healthy happy kids and well..I am good with that.
So what am I rambling on about here?? I am saying that I reject the concept that 50 is over the hill...that the better part of my life is over... that I need a rocking chair. Forget that...I want a horse and a snowboard!! I don't want to create a bucket list...ackkkk! I want to create a Let Fly list....being brave and take this almost 50 year old heart and soul in new directions and experience new and wonderful things!
So this week I am going to create a Let Fly list! What do you think about that??
Hugs and love all, Nearly 50 Sarah
