You’re speaking my heart, not being that far behind you

I love your writing and your confidence in vulnerability. Happy birthday to you! I’m still thinking about what 50 means to me, but at this moment, I know that I have been waiting for 50 like an anticipated vacation! It’s weird. I love being fifty (for nine days now). In some strange way, it’s given me a confidence that I didn’t have before- a golden safety net of courage both in humility and acceptance and trust in my life’s experiences. I know where I have been and where I want to go and will indulge in all the unexpected good and bad in between. Because, fuck yes, I’m fifty and finally have some experience to rely on, whatever the future brings. It feels GOOD to be fifty!

I read a fantastic book recently by Adam Grant called Think Again- The Power Of Knowing What You Don’t Know. As I get older, I don’t want to be someone who gets set in my ways. This book was a lesson in flexible thinking and unlearning. I highly recommend it!

Happy Birthday! You are not fifty; fifty is whatever you are, love, and spend your time doing. More power to you! (I'm 53 and love it.)

Hey friend! Thanks for lighting the way. Fifty will be better for your arrival. Hope to see you soon!! Happy, happy birthday 💗💗

A wonderful post and sentiment. Happy 5-O to you!! ❤️❤️❤️
