Today is my birthday. This morning I woke up with a sinus infection, I got into an argument with my husband, and I have parent conferences this evening. Not what I’d characterize as my ideal day.
BUT I have had tons of messages on Facebook, I have had colleagues stop by to wish me a happy day, and I have even had old student pop by because they wrote my day down in their planner. Yep, life is pretty good.
These big birthdays make us sit down to reassess, to examine whether we are living our lives the way we dream. One of the things I am really missing in my life is the consistent writing I used to do. That is my goal here: more consistent writing. I desire to hone my skill, and the best way to do this is to…well…write.
So cheers to 50! Cheers to creating the best life in the second half.
