*WARNING: Massive navel gazing ahead.*
I’ve been having a bit of a mid-life crisis lately. I’m 36 and I feel like time is slipping by way too fast. My kids are almost grown (oldest is 17, youngest is 12), and there’s so much I wanted to do for and with them that I haven’t been able to. I decided after New Year’s that I wanted this year to be the best year ever, a year I could look back on and think, “2007, that was the year I…” Fill in the blank with some great (or even just good) thing. So far, I’ve started a music podcast (which only increases my dork factor), and I made an important decision about a long-term goal, but that’s about it.
I find myself looking back over my life a lot and mostly thinking, “Man, that really sucked.”
