I made it good people! I have been on this planet for 44 years. In numerology 44 is a master number, therefore, this should be a year of me having the potential to achieve material and financial accomplishments.
I have never been a truly materialistic person, however, some financial stability would be nice. I want the freedom and experiences that come from being financially liquid. It would be nice to get my broke off and be able to live a little.
With that said, here are some thoughts on life in my mid-forties:
- It is so weird to hear the music of my teen-years being played at the local Stop & Shop supermarket. The most surreal moment was hearing Prince's Little Red Corvette, while I picked out bell peppers.
- I am still kinda gag a bit when people call me "sir."
- I feel sorta silly about not knowing how to drive. "I'm a New Yorker, fear's my life."
- Thank you mami for taking me to see Bob Fosse's Dancin' when I graduated the sixth grade. Seeing a Fosse show, as my first Broadway show, made me a theatre queen.
- I have to be mindful how I share my opinion when twenty-somethings talk to me. I don't want to become that know-it-all older dude. I learned to share experiences, and then dropping my wisdom in a way that is not judging their accumulation of experiences as an adult.
- I have become really good at striking up casual conversations with total strangers. Moreover, I don't really get bent out of shape if it doesn't go well.
- I still cherish my biological family and inner-circle of friends that have become my other family.
- Ewww, to the little aches, pains and growing ear hair. WTF!
- I miss Marcos everyday, but I know his spirit is going through a divine metamorphosis.
- If I ever have a 28" waist again, it means that something is seriously wrong.
