Yes, I, am going to be 50 in 50 days! This blog starts today, Saturday February 20th and ends on my 50th birthday, Saturday April 9, 2016!
I wanted to celebrate this milestone birthday in a special way and couldn't think of a better way than writing every day for 50 days. I have always loved writing, but between the procrastination, the time it takes me to think and write and worrying about what the reader will think, I either don't start or give up part way! "50 in 50 days" is my gift to me, to prove to myself that I can do it!
I have some ideas of what I'd like to write about, but no plan about what it will end up looking like. I am scared about living up to the daily commitment but excited that I am finally doing this.
Now the part about turning 50!
50 is half a century! How can it be here already? It always seemed such a long way away, a number far off in the distance. A number to associate with my grandparents and then my parents... but me?
Well that number is now squarely around the corner! If I blink I might miss the next 50 days and I don't want to do that. I want to look over the last 50 years of my life and know that my being here has been worth it. I want to smile and remember the good times, shed a tear for the sad times and 'laugh till I pee' for those moments that there may not even be words for!
I am ready to embrace 50 over the next 50 days!
Thank you for sharing a part of my life's journey with me!
