    • Katherine says:

      Hi Beth,
      The number one most important thing to share is to wish you a very happy birthday. I am sure you will see to it that it is joyful. You are such a delightful lady. Attitude always determines so much in your life snd of course when all is taken away from us what is left is how you respond.
      Thank you for sharing so much of your wisdom. You are a unique treasure.

  39. Becky says:

    Well said, Beth! Day after day, you’ve illustrated a fourth pillar to grace, strength and beauty. Wisdom! Happy birthday. EnJoy your day!

  40. Kathleen Sanders says:

    Happy Birthday Beth, I love your posts and the outfits that you wear.

  41. Wendy says:

    All excellent points. But more importantly: where are the German shepherds? lol. 🙂

    I’m 57 and I hope to have an attitude just like you in my 60s. Plus your hair.

    We adopted a GSD from the military (bounced for being too friendly). I’m not sure I can do another shepherd. A lot of work to keep him exercised etc.

    Great blog!

  56. Marsha Banks says:

    Happy birthday! This over 60 gig isn’t so bad. I’ll be 64 (wonder if Paul will sing to me) in October. I figure any day I wake up is going to be a fabulous one! At least, I’m working hard to make it that way. Sure there are the aches and pains that come with aging joints, but I just walk ‘em away! I decided to start a blog this year and am enjoying the steep learning curve. I hope you enjoy your day!

  57. Lee Ann Pierce says:

    I like your blog, your attitude is wonderful, your perspective is appreciated and valued. Thank you for all you “put out there” – it is more impactful than you know.

    Have a very Happy Birthday!

  58. Chris Taplac says:

    Happy Birthday to you.
    When I turned 63 in 2014 my husband and I moved to Spain. We are spending the last third of our lives traveling the world. While COVID slowed us down a bit we have never looked back. We just keep getting better with age.
    Sometimes it is a challenge to find
    similar styles here in Spain, but overall
    I have found that I can keep myself updated. Thank you for the daily input.

  59. Marcia Fishman says:

    🎂 Happy Birthday!
    Your post today was great about the third chapter of our lives! I do not wish to have mine filled with anything or anyone who is negative and to do what makes me happy. Also I agree about being able to help others.

  90. Leu2500 says:

    “in a youth-driven culture where society has deemed us old”

    Advertisers, not society, have deemed us old. In their endless quest for our $$$.

    But you can’t believe everything advertisers push.

    & I, for one, don’t want to “look young,” which according to advertisers means dye jobs, Botox & fillers to eliminate wrinkles, this cream, that makeup, etc.

    Don’t get me wrong; I’m plenty vain. But I’m 58 not 21 & my face should reflect that I’ve LIVED & ENJOYED those years between. Why would I want my face to look like I’ve never laughed, smiled, cried?

  91. Patricia Burdett says:

    Happiest of Birthdays, Beth! You are fabulous! 🍾🎂💥

  92. Vicki says:

    Wishing you a very happy birthday! Look forward to reading your blog every day and your outlook on life in general is an inspiration to me at 64!

    Happy Birthday, Beth!

  99. Dawn Reese says:

    I just turned 60 myself. It was a super big deal for me. As I was growing up both my mother and I were told that I would not live past 30, so I told everyone that I will stay 29 forever and celebrate anniversaries. Every decade I came to was another, “HA! I proved you wrong.” To those that said I would not live. This year I am telling everyone that I am sexty at being sixty! Have a super day!

  100. Sue in Oz says:

    Wishing you a magical birthday, Beth.

  101. CRISTINA MORENO says:

  107. Lindsey A says:

    Happy birthday! Wishing you a wonderful day and whole year with lots of fun, laughter, friendship and new adventures.

    Given the study you reference, I think you’d enjoy the book ‘The Happiness Curve: Why Life Gets Better After 50’ by Jonathan Rauch, and also the work of Dr. Laura Carstensen at the Stanford Center on Longevity.

  116. Kathy says:

    Love your blog, Beth. I turned 69 in June and enjoy exercise, pickleball, my art (retired art teacher), and FASHION! Your blog yesterday on swimsuits was fabulous and you look fabulous. You have given me more confidence to wear swimsuits. I’m fit, 5’4”, 120 pounds but still don’t like seeing myself in a swimsuit. Next time I suit up (which is often in SW Florida), I’ll think of you.

  117. Hi Beth
    Happy birthday
    Glad you have a good time at the beach.
    Love your advise, they are very true.
    I think too much about the future.
    Have to change attitude!!!.
    I will try to do better.

    Can’t seem to be able to send you my best wishes for your birthday.
    They refuse my message saying that I’ve already sent something similar which is false. It’s my third try!

  129. Linda Tylians says:

    All the best to you on your birthday! This was another inspiring commentary on the best years of our lives – when I look in the mirror I see HAPPY! I’ve also added the words “You Look Beautiful” to my bathroom mirror because reinforcement solidifies attitude! I’m 66 but well preserved because I live in cold Canada so I celebrate today with our Georgia Peach! Bonne fête!

    Happy Birthday!

  133. Andrea says:

    Happy Birthday, Beth. Eat cake and drink champagne🥂

    The third act is one of the best times of our lives in many ways. We can see what really matter, and if we are wise, we will model that for our youth. I love what Angelina Jolie told her daughters. Anyone can put on makeup and a pretty dress, but it’s what you do with your life that matters. I love makeup and pretty dresses, but leaving the world a kinder place it key for me.

    Own the day and your age, Beth – 🥂

  134. Vanessa says:

    Happy birthday, Beth. Very well written post today. I appreciate your blog where you encourage women of a certain age to live life with positivity and gusto, and face singleness with grace. God bless.

  135. Francine Brault says:

    How come you refuse my message to Beth. I wrote three times to wish her a happy birthday but each time you refused my message saying that I had already sent a similar message?

  136. Alecia says:

    Happy Birthday! I love your honesty. One of my favorite quotes is, “How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?”

  137. You’re beautiful!
    May God continue to bless you.

  138. Susan says:

    Happy Birthday, Beth! Hope your special day is filled with love and happiness!

    Thank you for all your work that you share with of us. I look forward to your blog everyday.

    ¡¡¡Feliz Cumpleaños Beth!!!, espero que lo pases muy bien junto a tu familia, yo estuve de cumpleaños el lunes 23 de agosto, cumplí 59 años y desde hace ya varios años que te sigo, me encanto tu reflexión acerca del paso de los años, yo todavía estoy en ese proceso de dejar rencores por ejemplo y trato dia a dia de no tener que dar explicaciones por todo ya no más. Un abrazo desde Santiago de Chile.

  141. Elizabeth says:

    Have a wonderful day!

    A very happy birthday to you Beth!
    My gosh you’ve given me such inspiration. Your blog post today is excellent! Yes, graceful and mindful. I’ve been struggling since losing my mom. Struggling terribly. My mom was so full of beauty and grace. She was my guiding light. I’m almost 60 and have been feeling so very lost in the aftermath of losing her. So I thank you for such uplifting and solid words. I will keep this post close at hand.

    All my best,

    Happy birthday, Beth. I so enjoy reading your posts; they are very inspiring. I will be 72 next week so I’ve been in this 3rd act for awhile. I was wondering though since my parents lived until 99 and 98, could there be a 4th act? What do you think? Hope you have a great day. Cheers from Iowa.

    Dear Beth,
    I’ve been a reader of your blog for years. I live in Poland. The realities of my life are sometimes different than in America, but I think the same. I am only two years younger … in a few days they will be 61. In my country, we wish you “100 years!” Keep writing, because I really like reading and looking at your photos.
    I cordially greet you – Janka
