You may have noticed I’ve been pampering myself abit more than usual lately.
First it was a fun little getaway weekend.
then it was a pretty spring pedicure.
And tonight my son and I are going out for dinner!
Little things really. But they aren’t things I normally do all the time. I’ve been attempting to be nice to myself.
Today (Friday, April 6) is my 50th birthday! 50!!
I’m not really sure what the hubbub about this milestone is all about anyway. I don’t feel 50 so why should I act it? 🙂
Landing on an easter weekend along with other things going on has me grateful we jammed in some fun and leisure before now. I think sometimes the best gift of all is just to be kind to yourself on an everyday basis.
So… that’s what I plan to do all year long. Rather than having one of those big bashes people have on this milestone, we’re going to spread things out and party every day we can. 🙂
I’m also wanting to make a difference this year. I’d like to bring some changes to my life that I know I can swing if I work hard enough for them. So I’ve been slating out a better plan to help make that happen.
But it’s hard work. Very hard. So bear with me if you see my postings slowing down or my facebook natter getting quieter than usual. I’m totally here, but pulling some double duty in other areas to attempt to make that happen.
See, the very best gift I could give myself is to do something with this thing I love so much. The potential is within all of us. We blog and it’s fun! But do you know how many times I get asked where my store is or when my book is coming out or why don’t I make signs or host workshops and all that jazz? Countless. So.. I’m working on it.
50 has so much promise! Can’t wait to see what 51 and beyond brings…
No fear or what, huh? 🙂
Are you freaking out about 50? Or how did you feel when that meter flipped? Did you make any resolutions that stuck?
