Turning 50! A celebration of life!

In May I am having my 50th birthday.   I'm going to be on the downward side of life, so to speak, and I felt it was worthy of celebration!  For the next 5 months, I am going to attempt 50 different extraordinary things.  Now this isn't all about jumping out of airplanes and taking great risks.  It's about finding out who I am now and where I'm headed and making each day count.  I want to be in a good place to spend the rest of my life.  By now, I pretty much know that family and close friends are to be cherished.  Work is about earning a living.  Free time is more valuable than anything and should be used wisely.  And of course, I'm starting to see that good health can be elusive so I'm going to try to do my best to get a few more good years out of this body and mind.  And if it's not too much trouble, I'd like to be remembered in a positive way by the people who one day will outlive me.  I don't need to be famous.  I just need to be loved by the people that I care about.

I hope you'll check in often to see what I've been up to.  Maybe you'll want to join me in a celebration of life!
