My Big 5-0 has come and gone!  I’m embracing it and want to acknowledge that it’s a big milestone in my life.  In my busy, full, blessed, amazing life I don’t always take time to reflect and relax. I LOVE my life and I LOVE being busy, but now it’s time in the “Year OF 50” to learn some balance.  About time, right? LOL!

What does 50 mean to me?


I have always lived by putting one foot in front of the other and sometimes I trip and fall and sometimes I run!  Now that I’m 50, will my life feel different?  I think it does a little bit and I’m excited about it!  I would never go back and be my younger self but I’m so glad that my younger self was able to learn from some really dumb mistakes and that God and the people that love me were able to forgive me for all of those dumb mistakes. 

One of the most important lessons I finally understand is receiving the gift of grace.  We don’t have to be perfect and we will always make mistakes but in the “year of 50” I get over my mistakes quickly and move on to what is important to me.

I will always do my best and put one foot in front of the other!
