so i turned 43 a week ago today.
i spent the big day snorkeling & luau-ing
a la maui with my big sis.
nothing to whine about, for sure.
& i got tons of happy wishes
via cards, calls & facebook.
& my family had gifts waiting for me
the evening i got home.
yet i somehow feel like i
haven't really absorbed the occasion
i think i'll put some time aside
during this chock-full week between travels
for me, myself & i to celebrate same.
meanwhile, i can comfort myself with the
following proven plusses of aging from
a found self magazine article:
－ as women age, our appreciation of our friends & friendships grows greater [university of queensland study].
－ as women age, we develop more solid, supportive social networks, which boost our confidence accordingly [psychology and aging report].
－ as women age, we tend to regain our equilibrium more rapidly following upsetting news [national institute on aging findings].
not much to whine about, for sure. :)
