My 49 birthday wishes for you

It’s my birthday week! 49 years ago, the world got a little more rowdy when I rolled in. 

I’ve said it before, but I truly love aging. I’ve earned my stripes. I feel more powerful and confident with each passing year. 

There’s so much more I want to deliver to the world. Y’all, I’m just getting started. 

My biggest birthday wish this year? 

To help YOU celebrate aging. Not “accept it.” Not do it “gracefully.” 

To CELEBRATE that you are alive. 

My wish for you is to be the woman with the stories, not the regrets. To collect the memories, moments, and experiences that you crave. To feel that everyday life is an adventure—a captivating story that’s always in progress. 

In honor of celebrating and experiencing this delicious life, I present:

My 49 Birthday wishes for you. 

Nothing would make me happier to watch you make one (or more!) of these wishes come true. 

  1. Mobilize for abortion rights. Check out these suggestions in my latest Instagram post

  6. Start that business. Earn enough to ditch your day job
  7. Launch that program. Write that book. Pitch yourself for that opportunity.
