Happy Birthday to ME!
Oh, Texas weather. You never know what you’re getting from one day to the next. Seriously – yesterday it was warm, today was cold and rainy. It’s like the weather doesn’t even know it’s January. But the good news is…
It’s my birthday! If you had told me the year I turned 50 that I would be celebrating my 56th birthday healthier, happier and more excited about life than ever I would have said you were crazy. When I turned 50 I was overweight, frustrated and borderline depressed. I really didn’t have much excitement about anything and couldn’t see a way out. It took me a couple of years, but in 2011 just before my 52nd birthday I decided to make some changes. Some pretty drastic changes. I determined to lose 30 pounds, learn to slalom waterski and run a 5k race. And I did it. It took 10 months of hard work, but I lost the 30 pounds and met all of my goals. It’s taken more hard work, but I’ve kept the weight off for almost 3 years. Which is a minor miracle, trust me.
The last 3 years have been an amazing adventure. I started writing this blog in 2012 and have been incredibly blessed by your response. I never imagined I would still be writing today – so thank you, from the bottom of my heart. Just last summer I started singing jazz – and I can’t even express how wonderful it’s been. I’ve made so many new friends, sung in some fun places with amazing musicians and had more fun than I believed possible. Life is really, really good.
Thank you for making this an amazing year. Y’all are wonderful!
Have a lovely day!
