10 Things I’ve Learned on the way to 60

I have been involved with some amazing transformations these past few weeks.

Here is a simple list of what I learned along the way…

1.  I make my choices whether I am aware or not.

I seem to enjoy the choices made WITH awareness!

2. The sweetness of life is magnified as drama is released.

Yes that’s right “drama free living” creates a sweetness in contentment that can not be compared!

3. There are so many ways to live, learn and die.

I embrace diversity!

4.  Resistance exists.

Now I look at how I can live aware of its vibrational chord, and resonate acceptance!

5. Driving up to Miami is not such a big deal.

Especially true when you are traveling with a friend, to see another friend!

6.  Celebrating your birth is a joy.

Somewhere around the 58th day of celebrating I got tired!

7. Pomegranates are amazing, once you get the knack of deseeding them.

8.  I am blessed.

Each day counting my blessings expands my understanding of how blessed I AM!

9.  Paddleboarding at sunset with a dolphin is euphoric.

Enough said!

10.  60 isn’t so scary!

My spirit is ageless and the rest is following!

    Nancy: Happy 60th!! I totally get the dolphins. When I was trudging to grad school (60 mi one way) down the PCH (Pacific Coast Highway) it totally made my day to see dolphins off shore. I had many opportunities to see them surfing the waves at a nearby beach and will miss them on the Cape. I am quite serene about turning 60 which is totally out of character for me. I have so many things to be thankful for and appreciate. Thanks to you and Don for helping me to discover yoga on the beach. Lots of hugs, Linda

    Happy Birthday Nancy. Interesting how those “big” birthdays seem to generate a reflective time by looking out to what is ahead down the road, and thinking on what is now behind. When I turned 60 I was delighted because I felt good about where I was in life (thankfully I still do)and it was so much better than just being 59!

    A milestone for sure, enjoy. Sending warm wishes to you and Don.

    Congrats Nancy! You are as young as you feel – yeah right! I’ll be 60 next year myself and your 10 facts are fascinating! Looking forward to seeing you and Don next year on the beach listening to the waves.

    As my mother said when she turned 60 “I don’t mind being 60, I just mind that so much of life is behind me”. At 66 now, I feel my life is better is so many ways because I appreciate each day.
