Another Birthday

My Dad always said getting old sucks but it’s better than the alternative. He was right. At 54, I have the wrinkles, aches and pains that come with age. But I’m so happy for each day and pack so much into each one.

My Dad also always said attitude is everything. I’ve found this to be true in life in general, but especially true when it comes to aging. There is no way to stop the big clock from ticking. Instead, I focus on staying young mentally.

On this birthday, I’m feeling happy, healthy and hopeful for many more birthdays. ❤️
