The great thing about getting older is that you don’t lose all the other ages you’ve been.

*This counts as my birthday wishlist every year as well!*
As I’m turning 52 on Friday, I thought a birthday-themed WW would be appropriate. Here’s a few gems I found online that snapped me out of my depression:
Birthdays are good for you. Statistics show that the people who have the most, live the longest.
~ Larry Lorenzoni ~
Birthdays are nature’s way of telling us to eat more cake.

It’s never too late to be what you want to be…Unless you want to be younger, then you’re screwed.

Amazingly Stephen King is 69 years young today! There are many writers who have earned the title “Master of Horror”, but since his first book, Carrie, which he wrote when he was twenty-six, and after more than forty years of writing there is only one “King”! There are so many wonderful quotes to choose from to illustrate what an amazing writer he is, but this one from Salem’s Lot particularly appeals to me.
But when fall comes, kicking summer out on its treacherous ass as it always does one day sometime after the midpoint of September, it stays awhile like an old friend that you have missed. It settles in the way an old friend will settle into your favorite chair and take out his pipe and light it and then fill the afternoon with stories of places he has been and things he has done since he last saw you.
Yikes! I turned 51 today, but I don’t feel like it. Okay, maybe physically I feel like I’ve passed the half century mark, but inside I still am definitely in touch with my inner child. In keeping with that I found this lovely quote and gifs to go with it:
Don’t get all weird about getting older! Our age is merely the number of years the world has been enjoying us!

I know y’all are probably rolling your eyes ’cause these are all Supernatural gifs, but honestly! What better time to enjoy my favorite beefcake (yes I said that!) than on my birthday!
