50 Things I have learned in 50 years – Day 43

We are on the final countdown to my 50th birthday! I guess you can say that as I get closer to the day I am overwhelmed by a mix of feelings- excitement, sadness and bit of nausea. I am sharing the lessons I have learned during my 50 years on earth.


I know you’re thinking, ‘What about my life?’ Which brings me to #43

Play. Play some more.

We forget to play. When we ‘grow up’ we relegate play to this idea that it is a kid thing. ‘Oh, kids need to play.’ Grown-ups play differently. We go out with friends and have a drink. That’s how we play. I say, play like a kid!

You hear a great song at the store? Sing it. Dance to it.

Play tag with your husband.

Have a nerf gun always cocked and loaded at your desk.

Be silly.

Go down a slide and swing on a swing.

Whatever it takes. Have fun.

Don’t dance like no one is watching. Dance like you don’t care who is watching!

Come back for the next 7 days and see what else I have learned.
