daily fitbattle #1747… 

Yes… 50 years old… everyone keeps telling me to lie about my age, since I don’t look 50 no one would be the wiser. But I’m not able to lie… as a matter of fact I have a difficult time not telling people my age. So no shock that I’m blogging about it.

I attribute my inability to lie about my age to an “Emotional Balancing” treatment I had at the Golden Door Spa in Phoenix shortly after I turned 40. The gentleman that I met with was a chiropractor, kinesiologist, and a therapist all rolled into one. In theory he reprogrammed my brain to not be concerned with, my then age, being 40.

I’ve flirted with the idea of finding someone who can reverse the emotional balancing but I’ve lived with being age liberated for 10 years so why turn back now.

Back to turning 50. I’m not sure how I feel about it. I’m not thrilled, but I realize that nothing will be different tomorrow. It’s not like we age over night…we age over time. And since I started my fitbattle almost five years ago I managed to get some years of my life back.

I suppose the challenge of birthdays that end in “0” is that they give us more pause then the others.

Today is my last day in my 40’s. A couple of days ago, a young man who used to work for me posted on Facebook that it was his last day in his 20’s. I get it… I was not thrilled with turning 30 either. 40 wasn’t so bad, but 50… ugh!

We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.  ~ Thornton Wilder

The best therapy for moments like this is giving thanks… I’m thankful to be back in Las Vegas and close to my family and friends… I’m thankful to have found a new calling in life where I am able to help people get their bodies and in some cases their lives back… I’m thankful for having so many people around me that I love and love me. I’m thankful for all the blessings I have received in my lifetime.

So there you have it… Tomorrow I will welcome 50 and all that this new decade of my life has to offer.

Until later… Kathi
