We all know about the gag gifts for 50 year olds, and I have gotten my share this year. Truthfully, though, I feel that when I think about where I am at 50, I have just gotten to the top of my hill.
This year, if I tally up where I am, I can say that I am a mother of two wonderful girls that are on the cusp of adulthood. They are happy, well adjusted, and growing.
I am a business owner in a challenging, exciting business, in a field that I love, which is much different than I was 15 years ago. I am an artist, creating new art daily to sell to people who love art. I am very happy at my job.
I am an independent author, who makes money writing about what I want, and selling products related to what I write. I am thriving in an uncertain world, and hopefully spreading that money outward into the local and global community.
And in most aspects of my life, I am relaxed and happy.
