I turn 60 on October 2; what a joy, privilege and responsibility! I can think of no better muse than Edith Wharton who wrote this simple, poignant quote in her autobiography, “A Backward Glance:”
“In spite of illness, in spite even of the archenemy sorrow, one can remain alive long past the usual date of disintegration if one is unafraid of change, insatiable in intellectual curiosity, interested in big things, and happy in small ways.“
Let’s reframe “aging” to “living!” Let’s show up with all of the love, light and gratitude we can muster! And, (note to self) let’s give ourselves all of the credit we deserve for doing so, without apology.
Happy Birthday to me and everyone who celebrates this milestone!
