Forward Motion at Fifty

Screen Shot 2019-03-04 at 10.54.52 PM

2019 is a big year for me . . . I turned 50!  My husband and three children decided that there’s no better way to celebrate this milestone than “Becoming” 50 with Michelle OBama.  They were SO right!  Not only was I presented with the book Becoming, but I also was given tickets to attend the ‘Intimate Conversations’ tour with my teenage daughter.  There is no better way to ‘become’ 50!  

Michelle wrote, “For me, becoming isn’t about arriving somewhere or achieving a certain aim. I see it instead as forward motion, a means of evolving, a way to reach continuously toward a better self. The journey doesn’t end.” 

Thank you Michelle Obama.  50 is not sad or depressing.  It is my time to evolve.  It is my time to reach towards my better self.  My journey is just beginning.  Watch out world . . . looks like I’ve just been practicing – – I have ‘become’ 50!

  1. What an awesome way to celebrate your 50th birthday! As 50 is looming in my future (turning 48 in April), this slice gives me hope that yes, 50 is that time to “reach toward my better self”.

    Thanks for this uplifting slice! 🙂

  2. Sounds like a fabulous 50th birthday celebration. I got to hear Michelle in Denver in December. She was fabulous! I have the book, but I think I want to listen to it as an audiobook.
