Turning 50

If you don't die, you'll get to age 50.

I'm a few hours away and feel like I have a good chance of making it.

I feel awesome. And grateful. I hoped that I could say that I feel healthier than ever, but I have fallen off the ladder with exercise and I definitely notice it.

Don't get me wrong, I feel really good. I'm eating well and I think that all in all I'm doing great.

They say 50 is the new 30. Not sure about that. What I am sure about is that I will continue to take each day as a gift, continue to spend as much time as possible being a voice for the voiceless and work to make the world a little safer for all living beings. I will get serious about exercise again.

For my 50th birthday I decided to raise money for Urban Peak, a rock-star non-profit in Denver that serves youth experience homelessness, over 2,000 of them a year. Their staff is filled with compassionate and passionate people who give their all in service of others. I was hoping to raise $1,000 and as of today am at $2,465! So awesome.

I'd like to say thank you to all of you who have supported this blog, which has become a highlight of my activism and work towards liberation. Those who read my blog have become an awesome part of my life, and I am grateful.

Together we can do so much for so many.

  1. I just recently finished my Year of 50 (turned 51 in November), and I have to say it was a remarkable year. My advice - embrace it, do those things/make those changes you've been putting off, pick back up those things you've missed - rock and roll!

  2. I've got almost 10 years on you. I'm entering my 60th year in December. I really don't know what I'm supposed to feel like, and really don't care. The best thing we can do is forget about the numbers and continue to live life to its fullest. Time is a human construct. I like to say "Happy Continuance Day"!
