Golden Jubilee Birth-year!

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.
