Apparently, being 40 soon is playing on my mind
It took me a while, but I know the cause...
I'm nearly 40.
"Landmark" birthdays have typically not been an issue for me. 30, for example, came and went without a blip. 40 is really bearing down on me though. It has become a psychological line in the sand and a temporal reference point against which I'm judging all the crap that I seem unable to get a handle on; weight loss, fitness regimen, achievements at work, and a whole host of other bullshit that otherwise wouldn't have a clock on them that casts a shadow of inadequacy over an otherwise perfectly adequate existence.
It's time to get a handle on this stuff, and sift through the crap before the big day arrives.
