A look back
In my last trip around the sun I visited two countries I had never been to before, caught COVID in one of them and had to fend for myself in isolation, launched a product I’m really proud of, identified and (I think) solved some really hard problems, reconnected with some people I missed, processed some loss, spent a lot of time around fire pits with good friends, and learned some good lessons around emotional boundaries.
A look forward
At 44, I want to read more books, take more chances, keep my priorities firmly in front of me, wear lipstick more often, sparkle more, doomscroll less (Thanks, Elon!), encourage my kiddo to be the best little weirdo he can be, let go better, love better, and remember that grace comes in the form of a pan of lasagna when you can’t manage even one more thing.
