My Daily Observation: 10/17/17



On this day 45 years ago I was born.  I have spent more time reflecting on my life this birthday more than any other.  I guess it’s because I now feel exceptionally close to 50.  I’ve never thought much about birthdays nor have I put much emphasis on them.  This year has felt a little different.

I feel a little melancholy to be quite frank and I noticed my mood change yesterday on the golf course.  I guess I should be thankful that I’ve made it this far as many of my friends have passed over.  I understand age to be a matter of the mind, yet I can’t help but think about getting old.

With that all said, here’s to another year and hopefully many, many more!

  1. First, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!🎂🍨🎉🎊🎁🎈🎂☺️🤗 Numbers “they” say, don’t mean a thing, but certain ages do make you think. After my 70th last year I felt relief, for my mother died at that age. My mind always thought, if I make it to 70, I’ll be okay. So now it’s a year later and I’m still here. The pressure, if there was any, is off. Does that make sense at all? Just enjoy life as much as you can for as long as you can.😊

  2. Happy Birthday to you!! You are entering the time in your life when you get to spend time reflecting. Its good for the soul and lets us decide what is important to us as we move forward. May this year and all the many years to come be full of reflection and wonder. 😊

  3. Happy Birthday and best wishes for many more. 45? You are still young in my books and you are still a distance away from 50. BTW at 50 it is customary to throw a good party for your friends. I am inviting myself now. Don’t worry I behave very well at parties and also remember that after 50 there are many things that get better in life. YES! It’s true.

  5. Happy birthday. I just hit the 55 mark last week and, if it makes you feel better, I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up. I still have goals and dreams that probably stretch another 50 years and I’ll do my best to reach all of them. Make the most of the journey and don’t rush the destination.
