What Is It About 30?
I just turnded 30 last week and, though I'm not devestated like a prom queen with a zit, it is like someone has flipped a switch in my head. I have this feeling like all of the sudden, I'm supposed to be something different. I'm kind of a high energy guy who can have fun in the most boring of meetings. However, it's as if that was fine last week (when I was in my 20's), but is unacceptable now. What is it about 30 that makes me feel like I have to stop all the fun and become a stiff?
I don't care to fight the aging. I welcome the gray hair, wrinkles, and wisdom I gain each year. However, I refuse to grow up. A wise man once said... "We don't stop playing because we get old. We get old because we stop playing."
