It’s a ‘Me’ day today!
No, I’m not being self-centered. It is my birthday and I have been blessed with reaching my 72nd birthday, and so yes, it will be a celebration.
I don’t FEEL seventy-two; in fact I don’t feel like a senior person at all – but that’s what I am and I have my senior’s government issue card to prove it.
Actually, I’ve had that piece of ID for quite a few years and you know what? Nobody has ever asked me for it! I could be deflated over that – it means I LOOK like a senior so no proof is needed. However, I don’t really care because I enjoy certain aspects of my mature years – in that trivialities are no longer important.
When I get agitated about something or somebody’s attitude, I simply ask myself, ‘Does it really matter?’ – and if I can truthfully answer, ‘Not really’ I allow myself an inner contentment that at one time would have eluded me.
Family and friends are the most important and I am blessed to have many lovely people in my life. So all in all, I enjoy being the age I am and am now going to go and enjoy MY day.
