How did I get to be 60?

I remember when I was in high school and for some reason we decided to figure out how the year we would turn 50.

It was 2012 for most of us, and we could no fathom life that far away. Would there be flying cars?

Well 50 came and went, and now I am 60.

How did I get here so fucking fast? And what do I do now?

You see dear friends, I have always had the constant rumbling of questions and thoughts in my head. I’ve gone to sleep at night mid thought, only to wake up in the morning to immediately finish that thought.

My way of processing what is going on is to ask those questions, and try to figure out the answers.

Now I know how I got here to 60 – it’s well documented by smart people.

So, I guess the real question is what do I do now that I am here to ensure that my goal of “the rest of my years is the best of my years” is met.

The grandest path I can take, starting today, is to begin to love myself. I’ve treated myself horribly, and there were times I didn’t even like me. I’ve made bad decisions, hurt people, and stuffed my body, my mind, and my soul with crap.

However, that was yesterday. I am a firm believer in seeing the lessons in my regrets, and using them for good.

So, if you are interested in my journey or any of the following:
