When I think about the fact that I’m almost 30 years old I sometimes wonder where the time has gone. What have I done with my life? What am I doing with my life? Why am I where I am? Why is it taking me so long to get where I want to be? What am I supposed to be learning along the journey? Bla Bla Bla. So I will sometimes think back on the things in my life that had significant influence in my life and defined who I have become. Here’s a list I came up with just really quick off the top of my head (partially in order of events but not really).
Playing T-ball and baseball.
Being the best trumpeter in the state at one time.
Being region champs in soccer in high-school.
Being known as “Do-It-All Asbell” in the newspaper and local TV for football.
That football team being a losing team for 3 out of 4 of my high school years.
Setting the field goal record that still stands at that high school (49 yds).
Graduating High School.
Being a “Who’s Who” student all through school (whatever that means – mom was proud).
Devin being born.
Skyler being born – 13 months after Devin.
Paying for 2 kids in that amount of time.
Going broke along the way.
Learning how to get un-broke.
Owning a mobile auto detail business.
Four year learning process in BWW (no detail necessary – I’m so much wiser now).
Working for Delta Airlines – best part was flight benefits – I was still in colllege at the time.
Working for Milliken & Co – tough company to work for.
Working for SGP – another tough company to work for.
I could probably add a lot more to this list but I’m starting to get bored of this. Live and learn. I guess that’s the best thing I’ve done with my life. Anyway, I’m going to go have a life for the rest of the day rather than think about the past…
