THE STATE OF MY LIFE

turning 38

Today’s my 38th birthday.  I’ve been contemplating this last year, and what it has meant to me.   I’ve decided to walk through a few points, and share them here with you.

Just to set the stage, I wrote this at a coffee house.  My preferred coffee is a simple brewed coffee.  I like a touch of cream, and just a few shakes of sugar.  I don’t need my drink to be fancy.  Yet, I want the base of my coffee to be really good.  A high quality bean that is expertly roasted.  That is a great analogy to my life.

My life is built upon a good base.  It’s a solid one that has allowed me to weather the very turbulent year that was 37 for me.
