#50Lessons Blog

On September 13, 2015, I turn 50. It seems impossible but true. I was trying to decide how I wanted to celebrate my birthday.

  • Gathering an amazing group of women and hiking a mountain?  We did that last month.
  • Having a fancy dinner in with my daughter and toasting with apple juice?  We do that most every week.
  • Getting together with my family and celebrating life?  We did that a few week ago.
  • Throwing a big party?  I am doing that this month.
  • Going out for a fancy dinner with friends?  I did that last weekend.
  • Going out for a quiet romantic date with my sweetie?  We do that regularly.
  • Doing something way out of my comfort zone outdoors.   I did that last month too! (High Ropes Adventure park!)

It was then, that I realized, I live every day to my fullest and I am so grateful.

So, I decided that what I wanted to do was identify what I feel are my top #50Lessons I have learned from being on this planet for 50 years. When I sat at my computer, the #50Lessons appeared almost magically.  As an author, I know that does not happen often but when it does, I know that I did not do the writing alone, I had help. Awesome help.

On July 25, 2015, we will begin the party – on Facebook (my private page and my public page) and on Twitter.   #50Lessons in 50 Years.  Feel free to ‘LIKE’ my Facebook page and Friend me on Facebook and/or Follow me on Twitter.  I look forward to sharing with you.

Following that I will post all of the #50Lessons in 50 Years here on my Blog in one spot.

The #50Lessons came from you, from life, from living fully, from the highs and lows.  I am so grateful and as my daughter and I sing Michelle  Jamail’s song often: ‘I Am So Glad I Am Here.’
