It’s my birthday today, the big 3-0. I’m thirty years old! That makes today’s theme song this absolute banger by Tim McGraw, from back when I thought 30 years old was an eternity away.

It be like that.

It’s kind of a weird age, to be sure. All jokes aside, I’m still young and I know that. But I think of it now as being a really real adult. Which is silly, since I’ve been married 4 years now and have 2 kids. But whenever your age starts with twenty, you still feel kinda like a kid.

But then again, I do feel old but I blame my parents for that. My dad was thirty-six when I was born, so all my memories of a dad is a man in his forties and fifties. So even though I’m just thirty I feel like I should be forty.

Now believe it or not, I wasn’t too much of a dumb kid/twenty-something. So unlike the Tim McGraw song I don’t feel like I have to “make up for lost time” or change many habits.

But I definitely intend to continue improving my life and spending time with the people most important to me: my family. Hell, I turned down my dream job last year because it would have required more time away from my wife and kids.

Going into my next thirty years, I know there’s only one thing I can’t get more of and that’s time. So I’ll spend what time I have with my family.

And of course I’ll keep creating stories for you to read, so stick around 😃
