My last day being 49... Counting my Blessings

Tomorrow I will have left behind half a century. I am feeling....old....confused...weird.

Life IS too short!

I had a good childhood. I was loved, taken very good care of and protected. My parents were the best and I am so thankful for having them as my parents. My dad passed away, when I was only 27 and he was only 54. Thank God mom is still around. My northern star...

I have a wonderful sister. She is smart, witty, funny, a bit crazy and very loving although she does not like to show it. I am so thankful for her and wishing her stable health and a long, happy life. She had been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease couple of years ago and I am worried about her health but I am praying and hoping for the best. I love her more than anyone can imagine.

I have some amazing friends and I am so thankful for having them.

I have had relationships which made me feel happy only for a while. I do not know it it was me, or them, or my poor choices, or their poor choices but, none of them worked. I finally gave it all up in my early thirties and decided that I would be better off alone.

Since, I do not feel lonely and spend time by myself quiet satisfactorily (is that a word?), I haven't regretted my decision.

Financially, I did well. If I had known, what I know now in my youth, I could have done things in a better manner but, even now at the brink of being 50, I am very close to financial freedom.

I think life is a gift and we must make the best of it. I am thankful for my life and ready to embrace what it will bring in the next half a century.


  1. Happy Birthday! Oh, to be 50 again...lol. Don't rule out a relationship at 50. What you want and need now are sooo different than when you were 30. At least, for me and my friends, wants and needs are different now.

    That was a wonderful tribute to your upbringing and family now!
