It is a chance for a party, an outrageous celebration and an opportunity to dream about the letter you will receive from the Queen in another 50 years, (If you make it).

Your soul is also thrilled as it gives you an opportunity for reflection, pondering and epiphanies. It provides a time to look at your last 50 and plan your next 50.

You get to laugh at all the hilarious ridiculous things you did, bad clothes and hairstyles you wore.

But, more seriously you get to look at how you behaved, what you learnt and who you have grown into.

You may still want to tweak a few things to ride out your next 50 in a smooth gracious easy going elegant knowing style, and that’s ok, its fun to keep learning it keeps us stimulated.

To plan for the future it’s always good to reflect on the past, it helps you to walk into the future knowing what you honour, cherish and treasure.

I didn’t have to think hard to come up with these they are kind of embedded in my heart from the 50 years of footsteps I have taken. For me, they have morphed and made an up-front appearance in my life really strongly over the last few years. I couldn’t have sprouted them in my 20’s I was to busy partying and I am sure they will be different in my 90’s. But this is what they are today. And today is really all that matters, isn’t it!

Alongside, more parties, fancy shoes, pink handbags and hilarious coffee dates with friends. Of course!
