I am 60 today. Seems very unreal to be honest. I remember as a little girl thinking our babysitter as a freshman in high school was really, REALLY, really old! :) Ah how one's perspective changes...
I have spent a good amount of time the last month thinking about my 50's. I was trying to come up with a word the summed them up. It was a tough decade. I loved, I lost, and it seemed I kept losing. The only word that kept coming up was CRAP. Really...CRAP.
Well I sat with that as I drove back and forth to work trying it on for size. CRAP It fit like a glove! LOL Then as I relaxed about it I would have these flashes of things that were really bright lights amongst the CRAP.
The more I relaxed the more bright lights I remembered. So much so that I felt less the need to label the decade and more the need to the grateful I am coming out of it. I don't know that I am coming out in one piece..but at least I know where all the pieces are.
So I am now moving into my 60's. My dear friend Sonia posted a birthday message for me this morning. Part of it talked about bubbles, sparkles and joy. Those are my words for my 60's. Bubbles, sparkles and joy! I don't have to sit long with those words to know they feel just fine!
And with that said I shall leave the CRAP behind...Happy New Decade to ME!
