Last year wasn’t the best year for me. Not all bad, not all good, but it could certainly have been better. All of the changes I endured in my life and lifestyle primarily took place in the latter half of the year. I keep thinking about that site, RealAge, that says certain stressors in your life reduce your real age. I probably took 20 years off my life due to stress.
I’m now separated (the Big D is imminent), I see my son half as much as I’d like, I’ve moved twice and will again in April, and I have a new job (same company, but a career change). Now, I’m not saying these things are all bad, just really stressful. In the long run, all of these changes will be for the better, and I know this.
Ultimately, I’m much happier. And I hope that will re-add 20 years to my life. 🙂
