52 in 52 at 52

It's that scary time of the year again, my birthday is fast approaching. And this time I will be 52. Yes, 52!!! I can't believe it either.

It's ironic that we spend the first,oh, twenty years of our lives wishing we were older so that we can do "grown up" things and spend the rest of it wanting to be younger.
·        So I can approach this milestone in my life in two ways.
A) I can spiral into a pit of depression
B) I can embrace it and put my half century worth of experience into fully living every day.
I'm going with B!

My favourite quote if from a very active 90 year old who when asked what her biggest regret in life was, replied
"Thinking I was too old at 80!"

And so I have a new project for my 52nd year.

I am going to try something new every week for the coming year. I have a few things in the pipeline, some big, some small. However I am still open to suggestions.
Just as long as they're legal!

  1. I suggest that you learn to sail. For there is nothing quite like hearing the sound of water under the hull and the sounds of the rigging. Plus it is an exhilarating past time.
    Oh' before I forget Happy Birthday xxx
