I TURNED 60! Damn I’m getting old! That’s what kept going through my mind and it was making me a little sad (because I started feeling like I’m running out of time, I have so much more that I want to accomplish in my life and I have a big mission to fulfill) until a friend reminded me of how blessed I am to have made it this far on my journey. She mirrored back to me what I already knew and have expressed to so many others over the years but sometimes it’s harder to follow our own advice. So after that loving reality check I said a prayer of thanks, got an attitude adjustment and went on to celebrate my birthday over two days with my daughter, sister, coworkers, friends and with Anthony Hamilton, Fantasia and a few hundred other folks.
I received such a major outpouring of love and some pretty special gifts that it filled my heart up with joy.
Sometimes we go through life in our own little bubble and we don’t realize the effect we are having on the people in our lives.
Mother’s Day was only 3 days after my big day and I celebrated again.
I really want to encourage you to take a look at the major milestones you have either experienced already or are happening in your life soon and choose to celebrate them. It could be a major birthday where you are turning 60 like me or 50, 40 or even 30 years old. You may have just gone through a divorce and are learning to maneuver life as a single person, lost a lot of weight, just bought a house or relocated to a new city. It doesn’t matter what the milestone is, what matters is that you be kind to yourself. Be willing to let go of the mean girl voices in your head that dim your spirit.
So my question for you is …………”If not now, WHEN? When will you say yes to yourself and to your life? When will you start to view your life from a more positive perspective? When will you give yourself a pat on the back for all that you have accomplished and when will you start allowing others to support you? We are not meant to be on this life journey alone. Say yes to your life and live as an example for the people in it.
