Today is the 50th birthday for me and my twin. I’m so thankful to God for blessing us with this milestone. The road to 50 has been scary, exciting, interesting, challenging, fun and surprising. But an old church hymn says, “I wouldn’t take nothing for my journey” and that’s real talk. We are blessed with loving parents, a crazy baby sibling, lots of family, and loyal friends. What else could we ask for? Absolutely nothing.
50 isn’t scary to me at all. I feel a sense of having lead a good life, not always the life I planned, but I’m not the one in control and I’m glad He has guided me down this path to 50. In my 20’s, I climbed the Corporate Ladder, honing my skills leading to a successful career in HR. In my 30’s, I married and unmarried, the end. I have struggled with being painfully shy, not really talking, not speaking my mind, letting my grades and other life accomplishments speak for me. In my 40’s, something happened. I turned a corner and gave myself permission to say what I felt. This was extremely freeing and way overdue. At 50, I’m comfortable with Me, feeling like I am enough. This life has been the best, we are blessed and favored in ways we can not measure. I can’t wait to see what this next half holds.
Have a super Sunday!
