This-n-That Thursday

Musings on the eve of my 51st birthday...
  • Water really is important.
  • So is vitamin D.
  • Spanx are not all that important.
  • I may never need to wear an overcoat again.
  • I am actually in my sixth decade of life.
  • When one lies awake at night, one can figure out things like decades lived.
  • In your sixth decade, you tend to lie awake at night.
  • You really don't have to stress over the small stuff.
  • You do, however, need to stand up for the big stuff.
  • Any free $$ should always be spent on travel.
  • "Giving your children roots and wings" is so life affirming.
  • It's all good.
Any more advice for me?

Treat every day as if it's your last. It makes you appreciate just being alive.

No advice for you, as you are much, much wiser than me. However, what is this about free money and where do I get it?

Happy, Happy, Happy early birthday! I wish I was there to celebrate with you!

I do not like to think in decades, now that you've kindly made me aware of it :)

Love the advice.

And it's so true - $$$ should always be spent on experiences, such as traveling, and not stuff. Experiences last so much longer! :)

Great advice...and the "roots & wings" is just soooooo very true...loved that!

TSannie's right...laughter will cure any dark moment. =)

Very well said. I've always been a huge believer in living in the moment. Let's just all embrace that, shall we?

Love and laugh. Those two will make you want to live.

Enjoy wine, too. That helps with all of the above.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Wonderful Lady. Enjoy to the fullest, you deserve every second of it.
