Help!!!! I’m turning 50. I want to hide and celebrate at the same time. I never thought it would happen. 50 was a number for my parents and older people but not for me (but guess what happened!). Time flies, and here I am, with a cake too small to fit the candles.
If you also are turning 50 or 40 or 60, who cares? Here are 50 things I learned over the years in no particular order.
Breathe - The secret to a long life: Just keep breathing.
Smile - It makes you happier and others around you too.
Lost - When you feel lost and confused, just keep swimming.
Emotions –” Every emotion is short lived unless you resist to it.” (Randy Hold)
Today - Today is the first day of the rest of your life. Go for it!
Friends – They are the family you get to choose. Treat them well.
Train – “You will always arrive at your destination, even if you run in the opposite direction.” (Jesse Koren)
Roller coaster – Life has its ups and downs, hang in there and enjoy the ride.
Dance – Don’t forget to dance and to be silly once in a while.
Pain – Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.
Sadness – Don’t be sad one day more than is necessary.
Bouncing – There is no way to be sad when bouncing on a trampoline or a ball.
Seduction – Someone who is attracted to you doesn’t ask your age and doesn’t care either.
Failing – Failure is part of success. Brush the dust and move on.
Relationship – Look back at any relationship, and f you learned something, it was worth it.
Dating – There are two types of good dates: the one that brings you a good story and the one that brings you a love story.
Mirror – Smile at your reflection in the mirror and she will smile back.
Decision – Use patience to check with your intuition and, once you decide, don’t be afraid.
Laughing – The best remedy against … anything.
Relax – Nothing is really under control … let it go and relax.
Ducks – The problem with trying to get your ducks in a row, is there is always one running away.
Light – Instead of looking for the light at the end of the tunnel, take the light and look inside that tunnel.
Universe – Watch out for what you ask of the Universe or of God, you might receive it.
Lessons – You don’t have to always learn your lessons the hard way, just ask for a smoother version.
Patience – Pushing things to go faster will only do one thing, make you feel frustrated.
Goals – Set the direction and be willing to be surprised.
Heartbreak – A heartbreak cannot be resolved from your head because it’s your heart that is aching, not your brain.
Body – Your body knows what is good for you, you just have to listen.
Life – Life can happen to you or for you. I chose the latter.
Choice – You always have a choice. Sometimes it’s between two things you don’t like, then choose the on that isn’t as bad.
Lingerie – Lingerie is the thing that no one can see and still make you feel sexy.
Sexy – A woman is sexy when she feels happy.
Strong - You are stronger when you are not afraid of being weak.
Morning – Every morning, choose to manifest the best day you can imagine.
Exercise – That thing you don’t want to do and that you are grateful you did.
Diet – If it doesn’t make you smile, don’t eat it.
Inner-child – There is this little one inside of you who knows that you can do anything when you grow up. What are you waiting for?
Intuition – Listen to it!!!!
Others – Don’t let them tell you what you can or cannot do.
Limits – They are meant to be stretched.
Excitement – The difference between fear and excitement is that when you are scared you stop breathing and when you are excited you breathe deeply.
Fears – They can hold you back or give you the opportunity to surprise yourself.
Forgiveness – The most important person to forgive is yourself. Let go of what you can’t change.
Gratitude – Be grateful for the smallest things. Gratitude doesn’t have to be big to mean something.
Soulmate – A soulmate is this person who helps your soul grow. You don’t have to stay together for this to happen.
Nothing – Sometimes you don’t know what to do. In those moments, it’s important to do… nothing.
Peace – We all want peace but peace can sometimes feel boring. Appreciate it anyway or you might regret those peaceful moments.
Happiness – Every day you get to choose to be happy. Make this choice.
Joy – The sparkle in your eyes when you start recognizing the beauty around you.
Birthday – Just another moment to celebrate!
