I turned 40 on March 7th. I took the week of nominally to celebrate this, and one of the things I did was tinker with a post trying to capture where my head is at these days. I’ve written in entire sections and then redacted them and I’ve played with a couple of different themes. I’ve finally concluded I should just keep it simple. I happened across a Kurt Vonnegut quote that sums up how I feel about it all better than I could write, so I think I’ll share it:
The greatest peace comes from the knowledge that I have enough.
When I boil it all down, that’s where I’m at at present – content with my lot, challenged by and enjoying my career, surrounded by the material comforts I need and fortunate enough to be in a position to acquire the ones I simply want, and looking forward to at least another 40 years of it 🙂
