Happy Birthday to Me!

I’ve been thinking a lot about aging in this birthday week. And I believe that being intentional about learning new things, applying learned lessons to my life, staying holistically healthy so I can share what I’ve learned, and thanking God for it all, has kept me young at heart, full of laughter and feeling blessed.

So I will continue doing those things. Happy Birthday to me!

“Age is just a number, and agelessness means not buying into the idea that a number determines everything from your state of health to your attractiveness to your value.” ~ Christiane Northrop

Shared Values

A week before I was scheduled to conduct a day of workshops for multiple leadership teams at a government agency, I was asked if I was going to laugh. The question might as well have been, “Are you going to breathe while you facilitate the workshops?”

I laugh loudly, uniquely and, as I age, with increasing frequency. But in this instance, my laugh, a reflection of my positivity, one of my strengths, was perceived as a weakness.

Trying not to laugh made for one of the longest, most exhausting, miserable experiences of my life. So I decided that in the future, I would only work with those whose values I share, one of which is, there will be laughter!

Laughter is the shortest distance between two people.” ~ Victor Borge
