Fifty Celebrations

One of the amazing ways my wife shows me her love is the the lengths she will go to ensure the smallest details are taken care of alongside with everything major. I am still buzzed from the weekend as my wife yet again managed to put me at a loss of words by not just throwing me an out of this world birthday but sneaking in not one by two surprises. Not only did she manage to fly my favorite dj from New York, Jay Dabhi, she coordinated one of my best friends Rockwell to surprise me as well.

As I walked around, I couldn’t help being grateful for how many people came from New York and other states just for this celebration. Of course my sister was the master of ceremonies, and for once, was kind enough to do a mild but heartfelt roast, and I couldn’t stop smiling the entire night. Between the trip with my friends to being surrounded by everyone dear to me, I saw my legacy and it felt good.

It took me 50 years to see my life as what I want it to be. Amazing family, dear friends, a doting wife, and to know that I have just begun the second half of my life, and I don’t plan on slowing down anytime soon. There was a tinge of sadness for the ones who werent there, but I felt their blessings all the same. I know that resting on my laurels is not my style. So the plan is to take on new challenges.

My current one is getting back to square one as I heal from my shoulder, learning new ways to keep fit, and to focus on returning the favors others have done for me to make me feel like the best person in the world. I am here fifty, and you better believe I am gonna make you work hard!
