Hey Sixty-Nistas…and Not-There-Yets, Friends of, etc.!!
I made it! August 16.
I – am – 60. This is the one.
Yes, we all talk about milestone birthdays. But for me, this is the one. I remember 30 and can see 90. To be able to look backward and forward with perspective…serious perspective, clarity and discernment. That’s what 60 is to me.
And, though we haven’t connected in a while, the rhythms of life continue to beat…to flow. Thanks so much for the well wishes. You all have been on my mind and heart. And I know you understand how things can
I am learning to accept this transformational period in my life gratefully, gracefully, skillfully, courageously, quietly, joyfully and faithfully.
But–it surely is a process.
I accepted that it may be hard for my beloved 88 year-old mother to catch her short term memory often now, but her wisdom is totally intact. And her physical health is good. She’s still here. And that is a supreme blessing.
It was amazing to see, feel and experience my son–my last child–graduate from college and leave home as a man. And I continue to savor the exciting and beautiful on-glowing of my independent daughter in her womanhood.
I have embraced friends, family and lovers–past, present, future. Opened my heart to the cyclical energy that flows, and respect that–just that. I have embraced the changes that God has in store for me.
So, I’m here to tell you, it is okay to be 60…very okay. I’m feeling closer to God; closer to who he sees in me and why he sees in me.
Yes–celebrate the moment–every moment! No matter where you are on your journey, wrap your arms around this time. Let’s Sizzle. Let’s do this.
More to come!
What about you?
