Defining Moments in Life

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 Soccer.

Playing T-ball and baseball.

Playing football.


Playing trumpet.

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.

Graduating College.

Being a “Who’s Who” student all through school (whatever that means – mom was proud).

Getting married.

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…
