Today is a day that we have celebrated before… At 47, as have been many of celebrations of this day, I was working and travelling. At 48, I could barely acknowledge it. At 49, was I really at the top of my game? Probably not. At 50, there was shepherding ducks and expressing gratitude. At 51, there was reflection on digital chutzpah. At 52, there was comment of the confidence that comes with experience. At 53, we prayed.
And, here I am, at 54.
The life lesson of the past year was to seek joy – if there is ever a sense of winning in life, it is in the ability to focus and appreciate that which offers joy – – for me, it is found in faith and in the blessings of a wonderful adult family, good and true friends, and the on-going search for discovery. Today, hold onto that and celebrate that which gives you joy.
