Tomorrow I will be officially 31 years of age. Yup, now well and truly on the slippery slope down to eventual old age. A lot changed in one year, and from having a lot of goals in front of me, I am now down to only a handful that I can think of.
So we are now well into 2011, and looking back at 2010 I can’t help but wonder how on Earth any forthcoming year will ever be able to compete with what was an absolutely monumental year in my life.
Someone pointed out to me that this really has been one hell of a year in my life. In the span of 1 year I have gotten married, tried to make the jump into management, gotten my wife pregnant, bought a brand new car off the showroom floor and am now in the process of trying to buy a house!
This got me then thinking about how death really can strike at any time and now with all my family responsibilities, I really do need to make better preparations for that possible eventuality.
And then I was 30. So last Tuesday, the 11th of May, saw me end off my time in the twenties and enter the age of the thirties and following the awesome surprise long weekend away to the Drakensberg courtesy of a sneaky Chantelle, this was probably the best process of aging one more year that I’ve had the pleasure of enjoying in absolute ages.
