Journal Entry – 5.26.2017

It is 4:41 AM on May 26th, 2017.  Today is my 40th birthday.

I awoke at 3:50 AM and have completed all my morning rituals: I’ve drank a shot of wheatgrass, put away the dry dishes and washed the dirty ones, set the coffee, meditated and now it is time for a journal entry.

Journal Entry – 5.25.2017

Tomorrow is my 40th birthday.  As I’ve said before I’ve felt like I’ve already reached 40 for a couple of months now but tomorrow it is for real.

Turning 40 reminds me of two things my parents said.  When I was young my Mom told me she never thought she’d be turning 40; life went so quickly and 40 was fast approaching.  At that moment I thought that 40 years of age was an infinity, an age that was so far into the future it would seem like an eternity to get there.  Well, here I sit, on a blustery, overcast day in May, thousands of miles away from where I grew up and 35 years older.

Nanea Hoffman quote

None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Eat the delicious food. Walk in the sunshine. Jump in the ocean. Say the truth that you’re carring in your heart like hidden treasure. Be silly. Be Kind. Be weird. There is no time for anything else.” 

This was on Reddit today.

Journal Entry 5.10.2017

The time is 6:11 AM; I have very little time to write in peace before everyone wakes up.

An interesting thing happened the other day.  I’ve been stressed and anxious for many months about work.  This is normal for an Account Manager because there is always the fear of losing accounts, of management restructuring yet again, of new initiatives, rollouts and so on which are never ending in today’s corporate environment.
