Happy Birthday to me!!

Today is my 58th birthday..OUCH!!  LOL  Sometimes I can hardly believe I have reached this age and more and more as the years go by, I don't want to waste a minute.  I have come to the point in my life where I am done comparing myself to others and tearing myself apart because I'm not thin enough(ok, I'll probably always be trying to lose 10 pounds ..:-) or pretty enough or witty enough or anything else that may rip my self esteem to shreds.   I'm just me..a bit silly sometimes, a bit of a romantic sometimes, a bit cynical sometimes but still trying to be the person God made me to be and failing at it lots of times..:-).   Either way I'm at peace with this 58 year old version of me and I have to tell you that's not a bad place to be.

Being at peace is the ultimate place to be in this life. I think you've done remarkably well, Joan. You've certainly been an inspiration to me, my friend.

I hope your birthday is as wonderful as you are. My love to you always.

I hope you had a wonderful day! It looked like you did per your Instagram photos. Yes, you just have to be thankful to be alive and forget all the silly stuff.
