On the eve of the twenty-fifth anniversary of my being brought into this world, I can not help but to look back on the last twenty-five years and reflect on everything I have done. I am also looking forward to the next twenty-five years and beyond.
The first twenty-five years on my life have been wonderful. I had a great childhood, with great parents and friends. I got a great education and feel I am prepared to take on the world as I enter into what most people call the real world. Yeah, I have been out of college a few years now, but I have recently considered myself to be real world acclimated. I am living on my own now, working full-time and supporting myself.
The next twenty-five years for me will hold countless adventures, surprises, and excitements. I really look forward to these new adventures to be coming my way. Here is a list of things I expect/hope to happen in the next twenty-five years of my life:
– Complete an Ironman
– Find a job/career that excites me every day
– Get married and start a family
– Qualify to run the Boston Marathon
– Qualify for the Ironman World Championships
– Have a lot of fun
– Take challenges head on and succeed in all that I attempt
Here’s to the next twenty-five years of my life, and the twenty-five after that!
Happy birthday Paul. Wishing for you all your dreams to come true. We always knew you would be successful in anything you tried. Proud to call you our “second son.”
