Chris, many epiphanies lately. I’ve been getting these moments of euphoria for no particular reason.
I can honestly say that at 47 after a few months of repair I have more energy than I’ve ever had as long as I can remember. That incredible sense of discovery and adventure of the 20s, say when getting your first grown-up job, your own place, and a live-in girlfriends’ gone. Too much life for that.
But a person gains other things, wisdom, peace, contentment (now that the booze is gone), seeing misfortune as teachers on life’s road. I sure don’t miss the insecurities of my 20s. Jeez, if only people knew what they’re missing out on.
