The day I’ve both dreaded and looked forward to for a long time.
My 50th Birthday!
I swear it feels like I just graduated high school last year. How can I be 50?!
I still don’t know what I wanna be when I grow up, y’all!
In a lot of ways I really haven’t grown up, just older. Know what I mean?
I don’t wanna grow up, I’m a Toys R Us kid! There’s a million toys at Toys R US that I can play with!
Somehow being 50 is strange. It’s a milestone that I set so many “somedays” on. You know those don’t you?
“Someday I’ll travel the world, maybe by the time I’m 50.”
“Someday I’ll own a huge cabin in the woods, certainly before I turn 50”
Well I’m here to tell you that “someday” just don’t work for goal setting. Putting things off for tomorrow, or “when I have more time” has led to this blog being nearly abandoned. Sadly I’ve watched more and more bloggers better than I could ever hope to be shut down their blogs. I don’t wanna look back in a few years and say I wish I would have continued. So my birthday gift to myself is to revive this blog.
My goals for year 50:
- To blog on a regular schedule- Tuesdays and Thursdays at a minimum.
- Make time for my healthcare needs.
- Be more physically active.
- Learn something new monthly.
- Dust off my novel and finish it.
- Post more often on social networks and not just resharing memes.
- Carve out time with my IRL friends.
- Try new things.
- Attend at least 1 conference in 2020.
- Completely update and revamp this blog.
- AND STOP SAYING SOMEDAY!
Overall, I am glad to be 50. Not enough people get to see their 50th birthday. Truthfully, I wasn’t sure I would. So I really wanna celebrate that achievement with you guys. How you may ask?
Well with a giveaway of course! From now until Halloween, anyone that joins my email list (don’t worry I won’t spam you) and comments on this post will be entered to win a $25 gift card to Target.
So comment below and tell me how you will (or did) celebrate your next milestone birthday!
