10 Days Until 50!

So 2013 arrived, January is over and here I am in the 2nd week of February completely calm and even excited for the big day to arrive.  With each day that passes, I find myself smiling and focused.  I’m productive and thoughtful about my life.  I can see not only what I want, but how to get it. 

This past year has been an amazing journey and at some points, I feared this birthday.  I panicked and wondered, “Shouldn’t I be (fill in the blank)?”  Or “I would be happier if (fill in the blank).”  The truth for me today is that I am okay with exactly where I am – in love with my husband, true love for my children, appreciation for my family, and deep gratitude for the opportunity to work with courageous colleagues who share a commitment and passion for the Jewish community.  But there is more, I also found joy in writing, meditating, learning, and trying very hard to make the most out of each moment.

On Glee tonight, Blaine sings Queen’s “Don’t Stop Me Now.” 

Tonight I'm gonna have myself a real good time
I feel alive and the world it's turning inside out Yeah!
I'm floating around in ecstasy
So don't stop me now don't stop me
'Cause I'm having a good time having a good time

I'm a shooting star leaping through the skies
Like a tiger defying the laws of gravity
I'm a racing car passing by like Lady Godiva
I'm gonna go go go
There's no stopping me

There is more, but you get the point.  No coincidences, this is my theme song for the day, maybe the year.  I am looking forward to the day and the celebrations with my family and friends.  

Happy Birthday to me! 


  1. Happy birthday! That is my absolute favorite Queen song and I have been using it to pump me up since college. Hope it is a great year for you!!!
