"There are two great days in a person's life - the day we are born and the day we discover why." — William Barclay
Yes, it's true! I'm 35 years old today! So be sure to check out today's Magic Word episode where I share my Top 5 Birthday Card List! Comedy and inspiration ensue.
One of my major goals in life is to live to be 70 years old. This may seem like a silly goal considering that according to some estimates the average life expectancy of a male in the USA is 78.74 years. That, and don't most people say that they wish to live to be 100?
I have realistic expectations and other motives for choosing this as my target, though.
Neither my father nor my grandfather made it to 70 years old, so everything I do today is aiming for that target. Because of them I am alive today, so I'm doing my part to be worthy of the honor of life.
If the goal is to make it to 2053 then I'll have to live another 35 years to get there. Though this is my target, this does not mean that I intend on dying once I reach that Magic age. Rather, the way I see it, once I reach that benchmark it will be as if I've been given a license to write a whole new chapter in my life!
But before I get ahead of myself, I still have plenty of years, and months, and weeks, and days, and hours, and minutes, and seconds to go. And I intend on making the most of every moment!
Today also marks the 84th episode of Magic Words. Yay! So be sure to click the video above to watch this birthday edition episode where I share my Top 5 Birthday Card List. Comedy and inspiration ensue!
