    The new face of 50

    Dad always said, "Don't sweat the small stuff".

     

    Notes on turning 50:

     

    • We threw a catered party to mark the accomplishment. Family and friends helped celebrate the half century I managed to survive.

     

     

    • The older I get, the more Dad was right, there really is a lot of small stuff.

     

     

     

     

    • I have to exercise to compensate for my slowing metabolism.

     

     

    • My reading glasses are never far away.

     

     

    • By far, the most rewarding part of my journey has been raising my daughter (now 10).

     

     

    • I am reminded of a line by Jimmy Buffett, "...growing older, but not up...".

     

     

    • Family and friends make the world go 'round.

     

     

    • Work is a necessary evil to afford more time with family and friends.
