Celebrating My 25 x 2–2 Birthday

Cheers to the number 48!

“Your age isn’t you. Use today to feel your best, celebrate and be your very happiest.” — M. Rivers

As I inch towards 50, sadness drifts through me. This morning I was wondering, why? If friends say something negative about their age, I correct them, “Age is just a number. You should be grateful for each birthday.”

I feel grief over wasting time in my 20’s, running away from a stressful family situation to a stressful love relationship, ending in divorce.
