50th Birthday

Multiply Your Joys on Your 50th Birthday!

So, it is a mid-century birthday! That calls for a big celebration. Fifty years and counting. Make the best of the 50th birthday, as each day is special. Today you will mark fifty years of your sojourn in this world.

The 50th birthday heralds the rebirth of a relaxed person who has fulfilled his obligations. Now is the time to enjoy life. Do not count life's success by benchmarks or years; count the blessings endowed upon you.

Life looks different when it does not saddle you with responsibilities and ambition.

As I steadily count the wrinkles on my face, and the greying hair on my head, I wonder where I will be when I turn 50. Will I still be writing? Will I have crossed out most of the things to do in my bucket list?

The most important time in your life is now. Whether you cross the mid-century mark with your teeth intact or not, is less important. Don't fret about your future. When you are ready to walk into the sunset, make sure that you don't look back and wonder why you missed out on all those beautiful moments that came by. So enjoy your day as if you have just one left! Happy 50th birthday to you! And many more to come!
