As The Clock Strikes Midnight A New Decade Has Begun!
Updated: Mar 18
Wow, as the clock struck midnight I officially became 50!
My Official Fifty & Fabulous Theme Song: Tú sí sabes quererme By: Natalia LaFourcade
I picked this song because it expresses all who I am as a woman, a Latina who lives her life out passionately, loves her culture, her music. I get lost when I dance to this song, closing my eyes allowing the beat to let me flow.
I don’t know if I should laugh, cry or dance – maybe all of the above? Yes, that is what I will do!
I bought myself some prosecco, chocolate covered strawberries and a beautiful rose gold ring, because I can! I've worked my butt off since I was 13, working hard. There were times where I worked a full time job, a part time job and went to school so that I can someday buy nice things for myself. That's the beauty of being this age, enjoying being able to do that and It feels darn good!
I Laugh because I am happy, simple as that!
Cry because I have some amazing memories with so many of you and I am so, so thankful that I have been able to cross paths with you all, even if it were for a few moments in time. I have lived a good life. Even with COVID my life is full despite making some amendments.
I Dance, because it makes me feel free with no inhibition and I LOVE me and frickin’ COVID is not going to stop me from dancing my heart out on my birthday. Even if it’s just me and 2 dogs that I am babysitting for a relative, they make pretty good dance partners following me every where I move. Oh ya, and can’t forget about the Baby Yoda that was left on the sofa. I have gained much wisdom from him these past few days. LOL
COVID may have changed my plans, but heck I am still enjoying the night!
Do I feel different than what I did at 11:59pm? I don’t know, I think so. I do! Hahahahaa
Looking forward to what this day holds for me, one more dance before I go to bed, I plan on waking up early taking a walk outside and take a deep breath of fresh air. Nothing smells better than the air after it rains.
Cheers to 2021 and being 50! On to the next adventure in life!
