Thoughts of a 39 Year Old

I’m working late, attempting to make a deadline and I just noticed that it’s past midnight which means I’m officially 39 years old… Hmmm….39.

I seem to have more questions than answers these days but I do believe that I’ve learned a few things in these 39 years… I’ve certainly experienced some happiness and pain and discovered that they often go hand in hand…

I’ve found that people come and people go and that’s OK… That jobs change, scenery changes, even ideas, beliefs and principles can change… That nothing is certain and an open mind is beneficial…

I’ve found that a life of gratitude is far more fulfilling than one set on expectations… I’ve learned to like myself, while discovering that it’s not all about me… I know that a dollar spent on a book is never wasted and that music has magical healing powers… I know family is a gift and true friendship is the greatest reward… And I’ve learned to enjoy the journey and to be thankful for these moments and the people I share them with (that means you)…

Alright, that’s enough heartfelt reflection for one year, back to work and back to aging… Until 40…
