The benefit of being 50

I turned 50 in May and unlike many of my friends it really didn't worry me.  I have always seen another birthday as another chance to celebrate and this year's was no exception - dinner with the love of my life at the Eiffel Tower overlooking a springtime Paris.  A memorable and beautiful night that makes me smile every time I think of it.

But now a few months has gone by and I realized that one of the other benefits of being a "magic 0" number is that you really care a whole lot less about what other people think of you.

I have been preoccupied with a little dilemma this week and during a conversation with an aquaintance he said to me - so you make a decision if its the wrong decision you make another one.  Very true and that is what I did ......and then....I realized....

The down side of being 50 is that I don't have too many bad decisions ( or good ones for that matter) left - now for a moment that was a little depressing but then it hit me -
make the decisions faster
be more fearless
care less about what others think of them

- like Nike said Just do it!!

Not a bad creed for the next 50 years .......

until next time
