It’s June 16th, and today is my birthday! I just turned 59 years young! Woohoo! It’s actually really hard to wrap my mind around the fact that this is my last year in my 50’s! I remember turning 50 and wondering how I could possibly be that old! I know it’s all relative and I certainly don’t feel my chronological age! I still run 5 miles 2 or 3 times a week, I take yoga 2 or 3 times a week, I try to do a weight workout once or twice a week, and I teach 3 fitness classes a week. So in terms of the average 59er, I think I’m definitely not typical!
The one thing I am very present to is that at this age I am finally taking myself as an artist seriously. I am calling myself an artist when I introduce myself, and I am making art a part of my daily routine.
With this new year, I am trying on a new way of being. Being present, focused, committed, fearless, and really true to myself! I’ll keep you posted as the year unfolds!
