Birthday thoughts

I’m officially another year older today.

Funnily enough I don’t feel any older than I did yesterday!

I have had the best day – presents, a day off work, a nice walk/run, a long lunch with 2 other birthday friends, our town’s Christmas street party and lots of lovely messages, hugs and kisses from friends and family. I’m definitely feeling the birthday love 😊

I may not be 24, 34 or even 44 anymore but in some ways I don’t feel any different than I did then. It’s just that the numbers are getting bigger each year!

Being a woman of a certain age has its good and bad points. I don’t fear getting older but I do have a secret fear of becoming invisible. Women have a habit of becoming invisible and fading away as they get older. I am determined that this won’t happen to me. My youthfulness may fade away but my spirit won’t fade. Somehow I’ll try to keep it.

I’m into talking, laughing, blogging, social media, adventures, bright colours, community volunteering through Rotary – is this all just a ruse on my part to stay visible in today’s world? Am I the only one that feels like this?

Happy birthday to me! Life certainly is better when you’re laughing!!!

    Lovely sentiments Deb. I’ve thought about that very thing for a while now, but as I approach yet another signigicant ‘0’ age next year, I’m
    finding it harder to have the energy to keep that invisibility at bay. I’m off to Canada for Christmas with two of my daughters & I’m hoping I will rustle up some new ideas & interests to kick start this next phase of my life. So “I hear ya girl” and I wish you every success with your endeavors, you certainly are giving it your best shot. Love Patty

          Yes I know what you mean, it seems to be getting harder for people to take the time to comment lately, everyone seems too busy and quickly moves on to the next thing. Thanks again Ellen.
