Age is just a number

in Celebration

A shout out on Twitter yesterday resulted in tremendous amount of well wishes.

And amazing perspective to life. Some of it, blew my mind. Well, literally 😉

It’s a BIG year for me! I turned the BIG 4-0 this past 9/11. So far…it’s been a GREAT year!! Seriously amazing.

@SimpleBites said:

Well happy birthday!! It is actually my dear mother’s birthday today. =) (and you and I are the same age)

@LisaWood said:

happy birthday today! Mine too but I’m a bit older than you. (43 and not afraid to admit it) 😉

The only time I celebrated (announced) my birthday over this blog was in 2009. We celebrated the big 3-0 during a visit to India. How does it feels since then?

  • As of today, I am adding 2 more years of wisdom.
  • Appearance of GRAY HAIR! Nightmarish!
  • Added responsibility, (ahem) weight & backaches.
  • Completed MBA. Phew! Currently thinking about PhD. Kid you not.
  • Love every minute as a SAHW (stay at home wife) with flexible priorities. Less of “Just Do It”, more of “Do It Later”. Sort of laid-back.
  • Health becomes a priority i.e yoga, biking & running.
  • I am more likely to have similar experiences with people I often converse with. Do I feel smarter if I can relate? That’s a topic to discuss some day 😉
  • Proactive arguments wins all the time.
  • Sense of personal style.
  • Negotiation skills are test and put in good use.
  • More nieces and nephews are added in the birthday book.
  • I have OLD friends. Just kidding, you know who you are 😉
  • Taking health supplements and reading nutrition labels.

Being in the 20s seems mischievous with least caution. Do I miss it? Hell, yeah.

Took a little risk with a vlog. Don’t stone me for it 😉

Here’s to another year of awesomeness, a little acceptance towards wrinkles, GRAY HAIR (Yikes!) & backaches. Cheers 🙂

You are so encouraging, love your blogs.
I completely agree, age is just a number.
For the most part you are only as old as you make yourself.
I never have any problem telling people I’m 42.
I certainly don’t act 42. LOL

CHS,
Thank you so much dear friend. And happy big 5-0. It’s great that you are embracing age as just a number. I still don’t understand why many get offended if age is questioned.
