I’m turning 36 tomorrow and it feels really big this year for some reason. It might be that I’m over the hump of 35 which means I’m slowly (or, at lightning speed, rather) entering my late 30s. And stuff is… changing. My body feels different; my metabolism definitely feels like it’s slowed down a bit; I’m storing fat in weirder places than before; I’m more prone to aches and pains; cause and effect actually exist in the realm of food and alcohol. Go figure. Don’t get old, kids.
35 has been a HUGE year for me in terms of what I’ve learned has and has not worked for me as well as for my clients. None of us are getting any younger but, damn it, that doesn’t mean we should interpret aging as, “Ho, hum, I guess I’ll just settle into my fate of this crusty, achy existence.” So, in case I fall into the trap of self pity on an “I’m feeling old” day, I thought I’d make this list to look back on to feel better.
Here is my Top 10 list of Stuff I Learned from being 35:
And with that I wish you a happy weekend. Take care of yourselves, y'all!
