There is one post of mine that often shows up in web searches and it is titled Letting the Space In, or Why I Always Get Sick Around My Birthday.
Clearly I am not the only one who frequently gets sick around their birthday — other people are searching for answers too.
I hope my post gets them to think about thier annual time on the couch a little differently.
This year I knew I was fighting a cold/flu. There is a spot on my hand that gets tender before I get sick. If I pay close enough attention I can usually start on the Cold Calm and Emergen-C and take it easy and avoid getting sick. [Nope, I am NOT an affiliate, I get nothing from you trying either of those products. But I swear by Cold Calm if I start it as soon as I think I am getting sick.)
In any event, I was worn down and not feeling well, but couldn’t rest becuase I was throwing myself a birthday party!
It was a “Studio 50” disco party – a play on the famous 1970s NYC hot spot, Studio 54, but I renamed it because, well, I was turning 50.
I will definately be telling you all about it in an upcoming post. I have a lot to catch you up on, since I have been MIA in the blogosphere for a while.
I have to tell you why I throw myself parties, even if it may be seen as déclassé.
I want to tell you about the incredible silent retreat I went on recently. I try to go annually and the first time I went was on over the weekend I turned 40.
I also need to tell you about my beautiful friend Dee, and her conscious, beautiful, love-filled passing last month, just a few days after she had gathered several of her closest friends for a 24-hour love and laughter fest.
But for now, I will share a couple of photos from the party, and re-read my post on getting sick around my birthday each year…there are some good questions in there I will ponder as I lay on the couch.
Until next time, celebrate everything!
