What Do You Do When You Turn 50

If you thought it would never arrive, as I have, well, think again.  Spring is here and so is my birthday.  But it’s not just any birthday….it’s my 50th!  It is something I’ve long anticipated with some “agita” and some excitement.  And now the day is here and I’m not sure how to react.  Sometimes it think I’m very happy to have come to this place of wisdom, experience, understanding, and acceptance of my life, children, friends, and family.  And sometimes I think….OH GOD …. I’m 50!  Over-the-Hill!  Yikes! 

Well, I can say that I am getting over the later of the two thoughts.  Since I have grown more accepting of my life….I guess I’m more accepting of my age.  And I can honestly say I feel better and have a better outlook on life now than I did when I turned 40!  So they say… 50 is the new 40.

My problem is I don’t know how to celebrate it…for myself….. I don’t mean a party to share with others or going out to dinner in Nyack.  I mean what can I do just for me to honor my life of 50 years and the many more to come?  Some people get tattoos. Some people take trips. Some people get a haircut or go to concerts. (maybe Andrea Bocelli!)  There are thousands of books written on it…Oprah talks about it….

What did you do?  Or will you do?  I’m curious to know.
