My 41st Year…A Celebration of Inspiration!

Posted by

Today starts my 41st year. A year of Inspiration. Happy Birthday to me!

I am a person who enjoys getting older. I don’t dread it. I truly believe we all get better with age.

I am here to tell you that I am WAY better than I was in my 20’s or 30’s. The 40’s are my favorite decade yet. I am healthier and happier than I have ever been and I have finally found my true purpose in life…to help others create inspired lives, inspired businesses and inspired design.

Just last week while I was in Yoga class, my teacher Stacey read aloud a few lines from an article. The gist of it was this…

Many of us are looking for the fountain of youth and some think yoga is just that. But yoga is really the fountain of life. And isn’t that what we should all be looking for. Because life gets better with age. Youth isn’t everything. With age comes maturity, and wisdom, and life experience.

She’s right! Shouldn’t we be looking for the “Fountain of Life” instead? Isn’t that what we should be celebrating? I can tell you that’s exactly what I want. And yoga and meditation are among the things that have helped me find it.

So Today I thank God, the Universe, and life for helping me get better with age. I am so lucky because I have FOUND the Fountain of Life. And I will stand in that fountain letting it pour happiness and health over me all the days of my life.

Looking forward to my BEST year ever. Thank you for being a part of it.

  1. I agree! The 40s rock and the wisdom and joy you are sharing is infectious! Thanks for celebrating life and sharing yours with us! Happy happy birthday T!

  2. Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter. Happy Birthday to you, Tobi!

  3. Great post. I also LOVE this decade! I cannot understand why people have always been down on 40 and beyond. I turned 40 on 1/14 and I LOVE it. I think it’s going tone a GREAT decade. Heres to a great 10 years!

    Only a week ago I rediscovered your blog. Life had become so busy and hectic that I had stopped allowing myself simple pleasures – like reading design blogs or pinning on Pinterest or sharing a glass of wine with a friend. It has been all work and no play for me. 2012 was the year I turned 50 (though in my mind I am still 30!). As a result, I have decided I need to slow down, savor life, take care of myself as much and as well as I do my children and husband. Your inspirational posts have been great reminders that I need to stay the course and recommit to each day. Thank you and happy, happy birthday. 40’s ARE terrific and 50’s don’t seem too bad either 😀 Roxanne

    Happy Birthday, Tobi!!!!!

    I know this will be an amazing year for you because you are giving so much of yourself to others…your clients, your blog friends, the design world.

    Wishing you many more meditative moments on your mat! I certainly love being on mine. And as my yoga teacher says…yoga isn’t about standing on your head, it’s about learning how to stand on your own two feet.
