How do you feel about aging? As a woman especially, I know how difficult a subject this can be. I’ve watched countless amazing women nervously dread and try to hide their birthdays- afraid that somehow aging meant turning into something ugly or ancient.
I’ll admit it, getting older can be scary and at times, seem like you’re falling behind – still single, still dreaming larger-than-life dreams of travel and adventure. But comparison is the thief of joy. To be alive, to grow on this planet, at this moment in time, is an adventure in itself! The whole point of aging is change. You are not the same person you were a decade ago; if you’re lucky, you’re not the same person you were last year. If we let them, our experiences can keep teaching us about ourselves. I celebrate that wisdom. And I’m grateful for every age I am blessed to become.
My birthday wish? More love, more health, more challenging fear & more growth!
