I hit the big 4-0 in 2017. It was not a milestone I was looking forward to. Reason being, I don’t *feel* 40 or at least I don’t feel like what I thought 40 would be like. Growing up 40 years old seemed so old. I heard family members complaining about various ailments, aches, and pains and I thought that’s what 40 should feel like and yea, I do have aches and pains but most of those have been caused by my years and years of inactivity and sedentary lifestyle. Years and years of overeating and not exercising coupled with some injuries I picked up during my time in the Army have slowed me down a bit and with age comes longer recovery times but all in all I’m in very good health. I want to see how far I can take my body and mind in 2018.
When this song came out it really struck a chord with me. Here are the lyrics and the video is below.
