Out With The Old

Well, I am not too sure what can be said about the last year. Unexpected for sure. 2020 was supposed to be a BIG year. And why not, it is 2020. That just has just a ring to it, doesn’t it. The year 2020 is going to bring great things, everyone said. Well I am going to say ‘out with the old and in with the new’. 2021 is going to bring great things. They say that out of the ashes a phoenix will rise.

2021 is going to be a great year and I am going to tell you why. We (Christine and I) will be celebrating a milestone this year. Yes our blog will be 3 years old..but we will also be turning 50! Yep, we are going to be 50 bitches. Oh I missed a punctation.

We are going to be 50, Bitches!!

Turning 50, you can wallow in the thought of being 50 or you can choose to celebrate it.

Out with the old
How do I Celebrate?

Well, I am choosing to celebrate it! I am not to sure how. Got any ideas? Do I start a bucket list of things I haven’t done in life but what to do? I can’t say that I would have a big list as I do not regret or feel like I am missing out on anything. Maybe once a month I celebrate me in some way. Twelve small celebrations instead of one big one..Hmm..Will have to stay tuned for the celebration, what ever that maybe.

What Turning 50 Means to Me

I learned a lot about myself in my 40’s (you can read about that here – Reflecting on my 40’s). So I am looking forward to my journey in my 50’s What will I learn about myself this decade? I do know that 50 is just a number. I do not feel like I am turning 50 except for the occasional episode of symptoms due to perimenopause.

Being 50 in 2021 is very different then being 50 in say, 1985. We know more about aging . We have learned that being active, eating healthier makes a difference. There are more products and services on the market to keep our skin and bodies looking and feeling 10 years younger then we are. We dye our hair more to cover that gray. Which reminds me, I am in a definite need of a root touch up ;).

We also know now about the self journey we are embarking on. As Oprah once said ‘what I know for sure about turning 50 is now I can breath. If you just keep breathing, you can not be conquered’.

Maya Angelou said ‘ the 50’s represent everything you were meant to be’.

So for the year 2021..Out with the Old and In with the New.

Watch out Bitches, This Bitch is turning 50!!
