Snack Girl Turns 50

Snack Girl turns 50

September 1, 2019   84 Comments

Tomorrow I turn 50 years old. Age is just a number, right?

I wish I could say I emulate the woman in the photo. She seems to calmly take in her surroundings as she tunes into herself. She is a master of the universe.

I think if I lived on a mountain, alone, and without much to do - I could attain serenity. But, I chose to live my life with two kids and a dog (as well as a partner). I own a car and a house (with the bank).

My worries are drawn on my face in a bunch of wrinkles.

But, there are some ways that I feel like Ms. Serenity up there. I feel physically great as I have been training for triathlons and I don’t have anything to prove.

What other people think of me and my choices - matters less and less. Material things have gotten less important and being positive has gotten more important.

I must say that working on Snack Girl for the last 10 years has given me plenty of perspective. This gig has been mostly fun and energizing. I can’t wait to see what the next 10 years brings me.

To my 50 year old sisters and brothers - I join you in this decade - ready to make it my best one yet.

Happy Birthday! Since I am 20 yrs older I can tell you it keeps getting better. We just start to feel freer and yes really know what matters most. I remember my favorite poem when I was 50 looking forward to the next chapter. You might enjoy it too. https://barbados.org/poetry/wheniam.htm

Happy birthday, Lisa. I hope this is one of your best birthdays yet. I agree with you and others that aging is very freeing and not letting what other people think bother you is one of the best parts.
