It’s My Birthday! Hello 50!

What's next for me text beside balloons.


Remember when you were young, and fifty seemed old? Some of you youngins reading this are thinking, “Kim, this is old.” 😆

I am here to let you know that age is just a number, babe. You are only as old as you feel; fifty is the new twenty-five. I’ve always said my magic number is twenty-eight. That’s how I feel on the inside. 🙌🏻

Growing older is a privilege, not a right, so I’m embracing my 50!

I am so excited to share my birthday with you, and to remind you that you are never too old to do what you dream of.

[Before we dream together, I just can’t wait any longer to give you a birthday gift! It’s something I’ve never done before, and I’m so excited to share it with you!

Now through March 5th, use the code KIM50 to take $50 off of ANY Strobel Education Online Course!]


What will the theme of your life be over the next ten years? Not a single one of us can be certain what the future holds…

But my intention as I embark on my 50s is EXPANSION and feeling FULLY ALIVE.

I want to be more present. I want to go inward and spend more time peeling back more layers of who Kim is in the deepest recesses of her being. I want to know the 50-something me in a deeper, more intimate, more sacred way.

I desire more time for play, experiences, hobbies, and doing the things that nurture my spirit. For example, I want to walk the El Camino de Santiago, a 500-mile spiritual walk across Spain that should take me thirty days.

I want to attend a deeply spiritual retreat, work with a shaman, and heal the wounded parts of me.

I wish to travel to Europe and explore.

I hope for more walks in nature and time to just take in the sweetness of life all around me.

But I’m secretly worried I will keep putting these aspirations off. I’m scared to leave my dogs for four weeks! The hubby will be fine, but my dogs? They are glued to me.

I’m afraid I won’t have the courage to attend the Bali Retreat, which has been on my vision board for ten years! Will I take the leap and go to Bali for two weeks this fall, or will I chicken out?

Ugg…I hope I start my 50s by saying “YES” to things that make me feel alive. I want to quit making excuses for not doing “the things.”

I want to fall even more in love with being alive.
