Milestone Birthdays + A Winner

Birthdays are usually fun for me. I love celebrating mine and everyone else’s. But this year was different.

I hit one of those “milestone birthdays”.

The more I thought about the # in the days leading up to it, the more depressed I became. Not for vain reasons (I’ve been fighting the uphill battle with my body for many years), but for more ephemeral reasons, like:

~Am I where I want to be at this point in my life?

~Do I still have time to get where I want to be? (that’s the pessimist in me talking)

~Am I treasuring the important things in my life?

~Am I dismissing the good things and focusing on the bad? (natural for a pessimist)

~How many more years do I have to feel like I’m not measuring up? I thought that was supposed to go away already!

Thinking brought me some answers I wanted, and some I didn’t. Isn’t that always the way? But I have to say my family and friends made the day a very special one without too much fuss. I was grateful to start a new decade surrounded by my loved ones. That’s the best way to do it, right?



The winner from my Summer for Love blog hop post is Kelly Thompson. She’ll receive a $10 Amazon card and a copy of my first Backstage Pass book, Finding Her Rhythm.

Finding Her Rhythm, Backstage Pass Novella, romantic suspense, erotic romance, romance author, musician hero, Indie publishing

Because of all the great responses, I’m giving away 2 additional copies of Finding Her Rhythm to Brandi Dagwan and Renata Sbr. I’ll be contacting everyone via email. Thank you for visiting with me on my blog!
