It’s Finally September, August Sucked


August 2019 was the worst month. Losing my dad was horrible and turning 50 was overshadowed by all that happened. I am so glad it is September and I welcome it with full spirit. Have a great month good people.

  1. Hello Tony. I have no words to help with the loss of your dad. You have my sympathy on that with the hope your raw emotions heal and you find peace with it. On the turning 50 that can be a great thing. You are of an age where you have learned lifes lessons, your brain is more adjusted than it was in your youth, your desires are more balanced, and you are ready to look with joy to the future. Take turning fifty as an accomplishment that many in this world do not get a chance to do. You have made a milestone, you won the race so far. I do wish you and yours the very best. Hugs


  2. You should still celebrate turning 50. Losing your dad, I can’t imagine what you’re gong through. But I think he’d want you to celebrate. My mom said turning 50 was the best thing that ever happened to her. And honestly, you deserve that feeling now too.

    Please do something nice for yourself – buy yourself a cake, or treat yourself to something that celebrates this new decade you’re going into. You deserve it and your dad would want it. ❤
