It's a Wonderful Life (in July)!
Life is interesting. This year I feel like I've lost my career mojo. I have a solid job, but by now (seven years after graduating with my masters) I expected to have achieved more in my career. Somewhere along the way (while I was working) my career got derailed, and I am unpleasantly surprised at my inability to make something happen for myself. Plus, I feel pressure to get my career on track before we adopt...I can hear the tick-tocks of time slipping away in my head.
My point is that the same year I have career angst brewing in my life I am reminded continuously for a whole week by my husband, my family, and my friends that I am the most successful man in the world. What is more important than to have a network of beloved humans in your life? I shouldn't have a worry in my head.
I can remember giving an impromptu speech at my graduation party (seven years ago!) where I reminded everyone in the room that the most important thing in life are the relationships you have with the people you love. This year, more than previous years, I needed to be reminded of that fact, which is what the birthday week did. Thank you birthday week!
