There aren't many good things about not being young
and free and 20-something any more. But one of them
is not being on the roller coaster that seems to
drive people's lives at that time. Asqui
says I'm still convinced my life is governed by
a sine wave
. Hmm. Is that a good thing?
Sure the good parts are good, but the lows are pretty
low. Kind of like being a manic depressive. The manic
bit can be a bit fun if you're prepared to let the wave
sweep you away.
What the 20-somethings don't realise (or don't want to
realise) is that not
riding the roller coaster is a big
comfort to me. I have a good job, I've been married seven
years today to my best friend (and I've been with her for
that long again), I have two great kids and a job I love.
All I have to do is keep my head down, do my best, and I
know the world will be a good place for me.
Sure things are hard some times, but I don't get quite
as angst-y about it as my younger friends do. I know
things will work out if I just keep trying and never
give up. Current Mood: content
