Engage Damn It! Engage!

Engage damn it. Engage!

That’s how I’ve felt lately. The blazing dogfight of life right in front of me, and I can’t get out of my chair. I tell myself that I’m waiting for the right moment… that “timing is everything”, but that’s crap. I’ve never given 100%, not even close, and I think I’m afraid to try. I don’t even know where I should give my 100%, assuming that I can. Just living is too easy, and that’s the biggest problem. I like doing things the easy way.

On a completely unrelated note: I turned a year older today.

I can sympathize with your self doubts, your feeling that you're not accomplishing enough, quickly enough, intensely enough.

Consider this though: I just turned 40 (thank you, thank you, there are lovely gift ideas at my wish list on Amazon) and lately I've been wishing I spent more time goofing off and having fun when I was your age.

You've accomplished a lot, a lot earlier in life than I did: thriving career, a life on your own, marriage.... I admire you quite a lot. So take a deep breath, have a cup of tea, and then get back out to that soccer field or whatever and have fun.
