Damn! I am turning 46 already. The years are just flying by. I am not complaining though. I am incredibly happy to be alive. Life is treating me well. I can still do all the activities I love including skiing, snowboarding, and skating.

I try to stay as positive as possible. I don’t let negativities, anxieties, and uncertainties get to me. I just want to live a simple, stress-free life.

I am blessed for my family. My wife and I are on excellent terms. We get along better than we ever had. Our trust is still strong. A good marriage goes a long way. It helps us focus our attention on our kids.

Being parents in the digital age is a huge challenge. I am just trying to navigate through one issue at a time. I am learning to worry less and trust them more. They will be fine—I hope.

I have been fortunate to have a few friends along the way. They help make my life a bit more pleasant. I appreciate all the bonding, drinking, and bullshitting.

As far as my professional career goes, I still have a job on my birthday. Tomorrow I will have my annual performance evaluation. Let’s see if I still have a job then, but I can’t worry about tomorrow. Today is my day.
