Fiftyis50, not the new 40. A blog about how to turn 50! I don’t really know how because I’ve never been 50. It is what it is and I am ready to embrace it! I have been talking about it and thinking about it since the day I turned 49. 50, it’s just a year, right? A half century mark, and a half way mark, and that’s big! A plan is needed for everything and with every plan you need a list. I have been obsessing over my list of 50 things for my 50th year!
A list that includes adventures that scare me, but come nowhere close to killing me.
A list that covers a broad range of interests.
A list that includes things I have never done.
A list that includes things that take my breath. Surely there are still some firsts out there.
A list that includes a wide range of friends. Friends from my past, friends that I currently interact with, and friends that I want to call friends in my future.
A list that includes things that entertain me.
A list that includes places I have never been.
A list that includes things that make me smarter.
A list that includes exercise and nutrition changes that are for life, not for next week or next month but for life. . I plan to re-read the book Younger Next Year and focus on what I have to do to make it to 100. That’s my goal if the good Lord is willing.
A list that involves money. Not making money. But spending money wisely and making it last.
A list that includes my family, the people I love. The people that I will spend the next 50 years with. A list that includes loving them like I have never loved them before.
A list that includes doing things that God wants me to do.
A list that includes organization. Once and for all organized.
A list that includes fashion and products that allow me to be 50 but not look 50.
A list that includes a timeline of things that I want to accomplish by certain dates.
A list that is fun. Including things that make me laugh. Who wants to get old and not have fun?
A list that include quiet and rest, and things that are peaceful. Things that restore.
See I am obsessing about the list of things that I want to include on “ The List”. It is 6 months until my 50th and this list will be ready. No looking back, no regrets, only looking forward to the next 50 years! You never know what a year is going to bring but I am counting on this next one being one that I remember. Come with me and help me enjoy the journey!
