50 and FABULOUS.........29 Forever....Age is Attitude....

50 and FABULOUS....Yep, That is me....Well, sort of.....I am also 29 Forever....Age is an Attitude....What attitude age are you?

When I turned 50 (a couple of years back) I simply could not believe those 50 candles on my birthday cake. Something was wrong....There should have only been 29....Somewhere along the line I had quit counting numbers for each birthday and got stuck at 29 Forever.....Now, my friends and family were celebrating the number 50 with me...How could this be...

You see, in person almost everyone thinks I am years younger...No thanks to cosmetic surgery (although I truly believe in it)...Instead thanks to a healthy lifestyle that I have had since as far back as I can remember.....I have always drank lots of water, eaten plenty of vegetables, juiced, and all the other things that promote great health.....I also have always had a great attitude...even during the most challangening of times....So 50....how could that be....

I made a decision on that birthday that I would make the 50's Fabulous....and I have....Yes, a few bumps in the road along the way...but even then I simply remained on track being Fabulous....Fabulous is a style, a mental frame of mind....Fabulous is Ageless.....and that is what I am....at least in my mind and spirit....Ageless....and Fabulous....

Our bodies do not dictate how old we are....Our Spirit does....Some people are old at 20, and some people are young at 90.....I saw a 90 year old woman riding her bicycle with knee pads heading home from my gym one day. I had to pull over to watch her make it up the hill on her mountain bike. She had knee pads and a helmet on...She was a sight to behold....A great sight .....I later saw her at the gym and asked her what her secret was....She simply said "I think Young..." and to me that was a powerful statement...Think Young....Attitude Age....29 Forever....

So here I am sitting here writing this for you to read.....Telling you my age, sort of....haha...29 Forever...Yep that is me....all at the same time making the 50's FABULOUS....
