I'm turning 50 years old on September 22nd. I'll admit it's bothering me just a little bit, but I really am hoping for my good friends and family are planning a fun day to mark the occasion.

Here's where I need your advice Bee Nation!

I am somewhat of a control freak. I am usually the one who plans my own party.

Should I leave things alone and trust that my friends and family are planning something awesome or is it alright for me at ask close friends if something is being planned.

I want input on people to invite, when and where to have a party, the type of party that I'd like.

What should I do?

Keep quiet and trust things will work out? Or, speak up?
