60 – a cause to celebrate

Today, on Feb 20, I’m 60.

It could’ve been a cause for despair. I mean, I've lived 60 years already. Yikes! So few years left. But I decided to go a different route and celebrate instead. There are many nice quotes on the internet about being 60, and I combined them with some beautiful paintings. In all of them, a woman admires herself in a mirror. It could be me, right? It should be me. We should all admire ourselves, no matter how old or how fat or how wrinkled or... We’re all beautiful, inside and out.

Happy birthday to all of us who are 60 years old and counting!
