Celebration Of Life aka entering my new decade, the ‘FOUR OHHHHH

Saturday, November 13th, 2010

For my 40th Birthday, I received a fine basket filled with RETRO candy. I reached into the basket of utter sweetness and grabbed Fun Dip:

Here’s a little history. Fun Dip has been alive since 1942 and is manufactured by the one and only Willy Wonka Candy Company. Before the Fun Dip name was adopted, it was called Lik-M-Aid.

It’s very apropo to blog about candy during this orange and black season. For my 40th Birthday, I receiveda fine basket filled of RETRO candy. I wanted to savour it so I didn’t open it until this past weekend.

The first one I ate was Lotsa Fizz. It is the candy when you bite into it, it foams in your mouth. Who remembers this fizzing candy?

Back to chit chatting about my new chapter.  Like I said, celebratiing and the planning for the new path before you shouldn’t be just on your “birth” day.

I came across an article I really like. I’m not sure who wrote it. To paraphrase, during one’s 40s, most women acheive new levels of power in their professional lives. With strength training, you can match and fuel your professional power with an exciting  surge of physical power.

Here are some thoughts from women about their journeys.

“Getting strong has made me more secure and confident in so many different areas of my life. It’s great not to feel weak and helpless anymore.”

I think this one is my favourite: “Strength training helps me cope with so many everyday things- carrying groceries, cleaning my house, everything!”

With our very busy lives, we always need help and we should’t be hesitant to ask for help!

Thought I would give you a little update on this warm, sunny day in May about 4-OH situation. I still feel the same as when I was 39, 34 and 20 for that matter.  No miraculous change yet. Who knows, I might wake up one day as a whole new person but then again I might not. I recently found this quote, Renovate!(your inner spirit and your home). A fella named Michael  Ruhlman is the author. “He believes you should acknowledge your core self. He explains how to rekindle  your inner spirit by making a permanent change to your dwelling- inside or out.” Since it’s ‘supposed’ to be spring, well, with temperatures like this it is more like summer, one usally does spring cleaning. With starting my new chapter or beginning, I’ve decided to make some changes not only in the inside but out as well. On that note, I’m working on something so when I know I will share…

Let the flirting with 4-OH festivities continue once again. It just goes to show you that your birthday doesn’t have to be celebrated on the day of your birth. I’m a prime example!  I had a fun night celebrating with some dear, old friends. One friend I met in grade 7 and the other I met in university. He lived across the hall from me in residence. His nick name was and still is, “The Boy Across The Hall”. We had fun dancing to some fun 80s. Never in the history of my club dancing days had I heard “Message In The Bottle by the Police”:

One of my great memories is when the DJ annouced Happy 40th Birthday to me. It was a great feeling!

Let the festivities continue! Celebrated with a dear friend who was entering the 4-OH milestone as well. We have been friends for 36 years! Wow, it was a great time had by all. We started out with Tex Mex and then headed out to hear a live band. She has no fear either about turning this age. We both look at as a new chapter or new beginning!
