So I turn 35 tomorrow.
I’ve been asked how I feel about that.
Not too shabby, thanks for asking.
Don’t get me wrong – the number sounds a bit odd, like it’s not real. It doesn’t seem quite right. It seems like life hit the accelerator about 11 years ago and started flipping calendar pages with reckless abandon.
It doesn’t seem possible that I graduated high school literally half my lifetime ago.
So…although I’ll admit to the occasional head-shaking as to how NOW got here so quickly and stealthily, I can’t complain about life at 35 one tiny little bit.
I’m in good health and in good shape. No ailments, aches, pains, or meds.
I have great friends who make me laugh.
I live in a nice house in a nice area.
I am able to do lots of things in my life that make me happy. Travel, improv, softball, food, drink…in no particular order.
I can’t believe I’m saying this, but…I like my job—the work, the people, the company. I like all of it.
Most of all, I married the right woman. She makes all the aforementioned stuff 10 times better.
Not too shabby.
