Yeah, today (August 29, 2018) I turned 49. Another year older, wiser maybe, dorky definitely. With that being said I don’t act it because that would be so boring but I do feel it. Slowing down even at my age can be a bummer. The one thing I have chosen is to relate to people from all generations. Sharing our common struggles in life can make this whole living thing so much better. Age is just a number so they say and I think there is merit to it.
Everyone is in different places in life but there are people who have been where others are just now are. I am not going to be the old guy who knows more than the younger folks but I hope I can be there for everyone if they need someone.
Making it through life is tough today it was tough yesterday and the days before that. Being aware of that can make someone who’s 19, 29, 39 and 49 feel better about where they are and where they are going.
To all those who are younger thanks for your friendship. To those who are older thanks for your connecting with me and letting me see what’s down the road.
The road to the big 5-0 begins today.
