The Best Decade of My Life So Far

When I celebrated my 80th birthday, Hay House threw me a gala party. What fun it was! The entire Hay House family of employees and authors were there, all of whom I love and adore; and many of my personal friends attended, too. As I looked out over the festive gathering, I announced that the coming decade would be the best of my life so far.The whole group loved hearing that. I even received a special Louise Hay Rose.

From the balcony of my home in San Diego, I have a breathtaking view of Balboa Park. This is the nation’s largest urban cultural park, home to major museums, renowned performing arts venues, the famous San Diego Zoo, and many beautiful gardens.

One of these gardens is the Inez Grant Parker memorial Rose Garden. If you are ever in San Diego and visit these gardens during blooming season, you’ll be able to see a series of 20 gorgeous Louise Hay Rose bushes there. In a special ceremony several years ago, the Friends of Balboa Park (a volunteer group dedicated to the preservation of this renowned park’s legacy) honored me by  planting my signature roses in the Park.

It’s a beautiful apricot/gold colored rose. I love having a rose named after me! This really touched my heart because long after I’m gone, its pleasure will remain. I also received a beautiful Louise Hay Orchid, a yellow cymbidium. (The cymbidiums are only available to those in Southern California who can grow them outdoors.) That whole evening really began my fabulous ninth decade. 

Let's Affirm: I marvel at the beauty that surrounds me.
