For the past two years, it’s been my pleasure to blog on or around my birthday on the joys of getting older and of living your dream, regardless of your age.

And, trembling (happily) on the eve of my 53rd birthday, I thought it’d be fun to look at the possiblities…
A lot of people think that, as you get older, all the excitement and fun goes out of things. That you’ve got to settle down/ grow up/be realistic/act your age.
That you’re basically dead inside, but haven’t had the sense to fall down yet.
Respectfully, I say nonsense. If you want to live that way, you can, but it’s not required of you. You can chose, instead, to have an amazing life…
You can age with style and panache. You can learn to tango with Life. You can do new and exciting places, meet and befriend fascinating people, accomplish astounding things, live (and love) your dreams. You can find your courage, spit in the eye of doing what’s expected of you and live extraordinary.
It’s never too late to have a happy childhood…
Since last year at this time, I’ve published my first book “Adventures in Palmistry” and am hard at work/play on my second on surviving and thriving as a psychic empath. I’ve written about a lot of interesting things on this blog and rejoiced in the comments and feedback I have gotten from you fascinating readers. I’ve learned a lot about manifestation, and writing, and friendship, and courage. I’ve helped people, and learned better how to let people help me. I’ve read a lot of books, made a lot of friends, and had a lot of adventures.
And the best is yet to come…
The best is yet to come for you, too.
Tommorrow’s my birthday. A birthday is a great day to make a start towards chasing your bliss and doing something excellant.
And it would be my pleasure to share my birthday with all of you.
What wonderful goal would you like to take a step towards starting on July 22, 2011?
Now, make a wish…
Blow out the candles…
And happy birthday to all of us.
