Hello 30.

The only thing you should worry about is the part you’re at right now.
–a wise parent

I spend too much time worrying about tomorrow, fretting over today, and mulling over yesterday. It takes a lot of time. And then, I become anxious because I spent a lot of time worrying.


Usually, I plan my vacations by scheduling multiple events every day and then I rush from one activity to another. Sometimes, I enjoy what I’m doing, but often, I’m just too nervous about the possibility of being late to the next fun thing that I forget to have fun.

I’m flying to Napa today to celebrate my birthday in the midst of wine country for four days. Except for dinner tonight, and a leisurely hot air balloon ride in the morning, there’s really nothing on the calendar.

I don’t like being overscheduled. How did I not know that about myself?

What’s a simple truth for you? How old were you before that truth dawned on you?
