I agree with much of what Donna had to say. (Do a tri! It’ll change your life…Donna, I think that could be another blog topic)…
That said, here’s what I’ll add…
Now that I’m a week away from age 44, I’ll invoke a cliche regarding all aspects of my health: I wish I knew then what I know now. Honestly, when people tell that “it” gets harder as you get older, they’re not joking.
I wish I had partied less (brain cells are a good thing) and exercised more (so is strength, stamina, etc). I regret every cigarette that I ever smoked. And during a week of bad news (123 of my coworkers are being laid off), I really wish that I had been less focused on my job and more on other parts of my life.
Don’t get me wrong, my life has been pretty incredible. And everything I did and experience until now made me what I am.
However, I’m counting 44 as my halfway mark.
I’m going to take everything that I’ve learned up to now and apply it to having an even more incredible second half. And I plan to be fully aware and engaged. And stronger. And wiser.
What about you?
