Well, I remember 40--sooooo long ago. I liked 40 because I felt I had a really good chance of living at least as long as I had lived to that point.
The big 50 was a minor bummer--I know I won't live to be 100, so life was more than half over.
When I had the even bigger 60 it was kind of neat because I could get senior discounts everywhere!
Now, I am not too many years from the really big 70--people tell me when I reach that mark they will start to consider me a "wise elder."
Just enjoy bec! You have so much more living to do, and you can hope that it will be even better than it has been up to now. If any one has black balloons on your birthday take a pin and break them all. The best is yet to come, but not for quite a while will you get the senior discounts, that should be a joy to you--you have years to go before that.
Peace to you and much joy and fun on your birthday and every day.
If we do not live what we believe, then we will begin to believe what we live.
