On 12th March 2018, I have just turned fifty, my golden jubilee birthday!
A 50th birthday is one of the most important birthdays a person has in his/her life, it’s a milestone and achievement. Marking the beginning of the latter years of a person’s life. “Forty is the old age of youth; fifty is the youth of old age.” (Victor Hugo)
For my 50th birthday, some friends started asking about my plans to celebrate the “big 5”. Do I want a party? No, not a party, but instead of a birthday, I’m going to have a birth-year!
Where I’m going to do 50 things that will make me happy, starting on my 50th Birthday, and go straight through until my 51st. It’s not a bucket list, but it’s things—that I know will bring me joy and will let me celebrate this wonderful birthday, for which I am grateful, for longer than one day.
List of things:
- Attend different kinds of art workshop
- Visit art galleries
- Keep regular exercise
- Overseas trip for training
- Short holidays
- Connect with old friends
- Go for retreat eg. silent retreat
- Write a short ebook
- Indoor rock climbing
- Adventurous activities
- Regular coffee meet with friends
- Spend the day at spa
- Travel to a city that I see in internet
- Start to throw things out
- Read good books
- Go paintballing
- Ride a hot air balloon
My first biggest birthday gift I have given myself 1st was the Master Class EMDR training in Singapore. One of the most expensive gift for now.
