I’d love to tell you that I’ve spent my 49th year on this planet looking forward to this milestone.
I’ve spent countless hours wondering if I’ve made good decisions with my career, taught my kids enough about life, and, believe it or not, visited enough national parks.
I’ve treated this birthday a little bit like a death sentence.
In other words, I’ve been a huge whiny baby.
But no more! (Ok, let’s be serious, I’ll still complain, just less.)
In the next chapter, I’m going to double down on the themes that bring me the most joy – family, vocation, philosophy, and community. (That list was inspired by reading The Second Mountain by David Brooks.)
What’s more, I look forward to sharing and learning from you along this journey.
