Aging and Happy Birthday to Me – June 17th, 19??✨

While sipping my second cup of coffee, its robustness stirs my thoughts into caffeinated inquiries and what I think about growing older. Something about fresh-washed mornings with shimmering dew, take me to a place and time I’ve been before. I not only let the “simpler times” feeling flow through me like a fresh mountain breeze, but I also inhale it. Options present themselves in life’s every nook and cranny, even those covered in dusty layers of yesteryear feel the warmth of the sun through the window of opportunity.

Same with aging, the options are simple and straightforward. One can become enlightened, genuine and commonsensical, inquisitive, and optimistic, and let age-flawed mindsets be bygones. Or one may become socially difficult and unsympathetic choosing a lonely and unreliable path. In my opinion, graciousness is the utmost descriptive one can receive. Tagged with such is an acclaimed gift from all walks of life. I yearn to keep the golden years golden.

    Now that I too am of an age that I remember my grandmothers who I believed to be gracious… I hope that I can follow them. Even when life tosses the unexpected, it is handling that chaos with calm assuredness that shows our maturity.

    May we continue to live life filled with laughter even when bits of chaos rains. 😀

  22. Sneaksy way of receiving Birthday greetings Eugenia 🙂 Tis another day of course, it is how you reflect upon it that makes you feel younger or older.

    • I didn’t want to make my birthday a big deal, Rory! “Aging” was one I drafted a while back and thought why not share my birthday, as well. It’s been a very productive day taking care of moving insurances resulting in major savings and reconnecting with friends.

  23. Happy Birthday! Celebrate the gift of being you!

  24. 🙂 Happy Birthday to you, Eugenia!

    May you see many more years without the back pain and arthritis.

    • Thank you, Renard! Love your comment and haven’t seen much more than grey hair and a few wrinkles. So far being a septuagenarian isn’t too bad.

  25. I hope you have had a Happy Day! We are fortunate to be alive and having birthdays and getting older !

  26. This is a beautiful post. I love the photo and I can certainly relate to the lovely words. As I age I intend to enjoy every moment I can, and deal with the challenges as gracefully as possible. Focus on the good, and celebrate every year! Happy birthday Eugi! May you be blessed with many more 🤗🙏

  31. When it’s my birthday, I always think of what a German wise man said:
    “It doesn’t matter how old you are, but how old you are.”
    Carl Ochsenius (1830 – 1906)
    HAPPY BIRTHDAY EUGENIA! 💐🌸🌹🌺🌻
