I had two birthdays that caused me to worie and get up set.
When i turned 20 i was up set because i fugured i no longer had an excuse. It was time to grow up. I was no longer a teenager.
When i turned 30 i started thinking just like you. I had all these dreams of where i wanted to be by that age. Well guess what? I am there. I have someone how loves me, a nice home, a few close friends. Thats all i realy need. All the other stuff would be great to have, but i have learned that i can live and be happy whth what i have. Sometimes when ive got the "mean reds" i will walk around my home and just remind my self that i DO have it better than some. I dont do that much anymore. I have finaly started to beleave my self. Carl your a wonderful man. You will enjoy your thirtys. Its strange, but things come much eaiser the older you get. Pluss things tend to move into the arcives much faster also. You deal with today as it hapens and poof! its in the arcives. Only to be drawn on when you need your own wisdom and knowalage.
Carl, i feel that you are strong, i just get that impression from you.
Im wishing you the best birthday that you have ever had.
