Good morning!!!!Woke up this morning filled with so much awe and gratitude for all the beautiful, kind and supportive comments I received for my birthday. One of the biggest gifts of technology, the internet and social media is the way we are able to connect both in the good times and the bad. I am overwhelmed with the love I felt and received. Technology may not have a heart and may sometimes overwhelm us with information, but today, I really see the beauty. Thank YOU for taking the time out of your busy life to wish me a happy birthday. It was very powerful to read all the posts and receive that much love. I hope that in life I can reciprocate that kind of love and kindness in all situations I find myself in. I also want to thank People Magazine for celebrating with me. Here is the story they posted for my @TheGentleFarm 50th Birthday. http://people.com/tv/carrie-ann-inaba-50-birthday-party/
It was really fun and special. I look forward to going back there and spending time with more of the animals. I hear they have a silkie chicken named Carlos who I haven't met yet. :) Well, The celebrations will continue throughout the week... and I just want to thank you for filling my heart with so much love that when I woke up this morning I was already feeling invigorated and filled with love... Now, it's off to the gym! Because 50 is still 50! ;) One last thought for today...
I feel so much love for you all. Thank you for your huge and kind hearts. And thank you for SHARING what is in your beautiful hearts with me on my special day. My wish is that we continue to share love and kindness everyday with each other. I am humbled and honored and DEEPLY inspired. THANK YOU! Have a beautiful day!
TODAY I TURN 50! 🙌🏻💕✨Turning Fifty is a momentous occasion and this year I wanted to do something different to celebrate my birthday. As you all know, I recently cut all meat out of my diet for the simple reason that I wanted to be truer to myself and live a more compassionate life. Eating meat has never felt quite right to me. So this year, instead of having a big party, I gathered a few friends and went to @thegentlebarn -a sanctuary for farm animals in need. I have to say it was the best choice ever and a very special way to celebrate a very special day. I’ve aways looked forward to being fifty, but the truth is as it drew closer I got a bit nervous... questions like “Have I done enough with my life?”, “Who am I” and “Shouldn’t I throw a big bash?” All were running through my mind. But after today, I know I must always trust my first instinct and intuition...because today was magical. 💕💫✨Spending time with my dear friends and with the amazing founder of #TheGentleBarn, @ellielaks was so uplifting and inspiring that I doubt there could have been a better way to spend my special birthday. Not to mention, the time spent with the purest hearts of these beautiful animals(and dancing with Earl the Emu) is most definitely the best way to head into a new chapter of life! So grateful to everyone for coming out and enjoying this special place with me. I encourage all of you who live in California to get out there and meet the animals. They will fill you up with so much love. And who knows.. you may end up a #vegetarian like me! It was a happy birthday indeed... and I look forward to living an even more compassionate life in the years to come. #bestlife#animalrescue#love#friendships#family#imfifty#50years#holycowIamfifty#livingwithjoy#makinggoodchoices#goodfriends#gonnakeepcelebratingallyear! 😉#dancingwiththestars#thisisfifty#thisisme#iamhappy#birthdaygirl
