What it means to me today
I started a countdown to my 50th birthday on October 1, and now I’m down to five days.
While I’m not particularly freaked out about turning 50, it feels weird to my ears to say it out loud.
I posted a picture from the 10 day mark, and one of my dearest and certainly oldest friend (46 years to be exact) told me I’m embracing 50 a lot better than she thinks she will.
Right now the only apprehension I have is how well my 50s will measure up to my 40s. I’m not really into making comparisons, but my 40s rocked in so many ways:
I wonder what my thoughts will be tomorrow when I’m at four days. Stay tuned!
