I could waste my time feeling old, but honestly most of the time I don’t. Last week I checked in with my physical self and ascertained that I still can do a cartwheel, hula hoop and a yoga headstand, so I still feel strong. Of course I will always feel like a work in progress, never content with my weight, or some other aspects of my appearance…but knowing that about myself is just part of accepting who I am, so I guess it’s a lesson in wisdom that I’ve gained in these years I’ve lived. In the grand scheme of things, I am extremely healthy and still able to do the things I want…and that’s a blessing for which I am thankful!
So instead of lamenting the number of birthdays I’ve had, I’ve been reminiscing about some of my “Birthdays Past”. I thought it would be fun - and therapeutic - to share my memories.
