As you read this – on my actual 50th birthday – I’ll have already been swept away by my beau to an undisclosed location for a surprise getaway celebration.
Surprises and I haven’t always been friends – the Type A-Producer-Control Freak-With-A-Strong-Need-To-Know in me used to have a really hard time chucking my routine to go with the flow and trust.
For the past year, since my last birthday in fact, I’ve been in a pretty deep inquiry about my own wants, needs and desires that has informed the conscious changes I’ve made. As a result, I’m consistently making choices now that are in service of creating and living the life that honors my priorities.
About a month ago I decided to clear this entire week on my calendar in order to rightfully honor this milestone birthday by allowing myself to say yes! to whatever arises in the moment. It started yesterday with a full-on powder day greeting me upon waking, and I was free to spend the day playing on the mountain, groovin’ on my new skis, lunching in the sun, bopping around après ski happy hours – and it was a Monday!
So, knowing that I was taking the week off, my man requested Tuesday through Thursday, no questions asked. I don’t even know what to pack, but already in my bag is my new bible, Goddesses Never Age. This brilliant and groundbreaking book by my friend Dr. Christiane Northrup just launched yesterday – luckily I’ve got connections at Hay House and was able to get my hands on it a little early – and now you can get your own copy, right here.
Have I mentioned that my guy is 9 years younger than I am and that I need all the “never aging” that I can get?!
Thankfully, this book is a goldmine of wisdom and mojo that already has me feeling more juicy and alive at 50 than ever before.
As I set out on another lap around the sun, I am reminded that that there’s no day like today. The future starts now. The choices we make in the present moment predict and determine our future.
The gift I am giving myself is to ask each day, “What is one thing I can do today in service of living the life that honors my deepest dreams and desires?”
I invite you to join me in this inquiry, commitment and action. Ask yourself, “What is one thing I can do today in service of living the life that honors my deepest dreams and desires?”– and share HERE, I want to support you!
