Celebrating your Life Now


August is a big month for me as it is Sizzling Sue’s Sixtieth Selebrations!

Yes I’m turning the big ’60’ and I am excited about it!!

Celebrating life, loved ones and a big birthday is the theme for me this month and I would love you to join in the celebrations with me and also celebrate your own life.

Celebrating your Life Now

Normally, when we think of a Celebration of Life it is usually in terms of a funeral or memorial service for someone who has died.

But why not Celebrate our Life NOW, TODAY!

Celebrating your Life Now

What is in store for August as we Celebrate life, loved ones and friendships?

  • I’ll be introducing you to guest writers who will look at Celebrating life, making memories with loved ones and friendships
  • Ways to celebrate our life every day
  • Why it is important not to wait for things to happen – but to make them happen now
  • Why we shouldn’t grieve the ’empty nest’ but see it as an opportunity
  • Ways to be fit, fabulous, healthier and happier at 60+
  • Plus more…

I do hope that you will join me for my August Celebration of Life and be inspired to live your life today and not wait!

    One way to look at it Sue, it’s just a number and is nothing to be scared of. You are right, life should be celebrated every day

    Looking forward to celebrating with you Sue – you’ll be the most sizzling 60 year old on the planet – especially after climbing all those stairs and running that huge marathon – What a Woman!!

    • Reply Sue Loncaric August 1, 2017 at 09:07

      Oh thanks so much Leanne you are my best and favourite blogging supporter thanks for the last two years of encouragement. xx

    Sue you are such an inspiration! I often wish we were neighbors so we could have lunch some time! August should be a great month and congrats on hitting that 6-0 milestone! My brother and sister in law both turned 60 in the last couple of months and had a big shindig up in Spokane Washington. My hubby flew up there, but I stayed home with the pups! It was a great party! I’m sure you will celebrate it up BIG! I’m right behind you–hitting 58 in december!

    • Reply Sue Loncaric August 1, 2017 at 16:09

      Oh thank you Terri and yes wouldn’t it be great to have a catch up together! I’m having a Sunday afternoon party arranged by my daughter and husband. I don’t really feel any different and am quite excited really. Thanks for being such a great supporter of mine. Have a great week! xx

    August is a special month in my family too. 6 August was when I have birth to our daughter who will be 46 next Sunday. I remember the nights in hospital leading up to her eventual arrival very well and as a fairly naive young wife I guess I went along with the natural birth as I was guided by the midwife. Happy birthday month to you!

    So you’re joining the ranks of the sexy sixties? I turned 60 in February and it hasn’t been too bad at all. The trick is not to think like a 60 year old and keep yourself thinking young. I will certainly be joining you on your 31 days of August Celebration of Life! #TeamLovinLife

    • Reply Sue Loncaric August 3, 2017 at 17:25

      Oh I love that Kathy ‘Sexy Sixties’ that is us for sure!!! I remember reading your post about turning 60 and it is certainly so different to our Mothers’ day isn’t it? Thanks for visiting and have a beautiful day x

    Best wishes for your 60th Sue. I hope you really enjoy your celebrations! I stopped worrying about my age a long time ago. Yes, it is just a number. The most important thing is that you’re happy and healthy, and you enjoy life. Nothing else matters! 🙂 #TeamLovinLife
