    So this is what #46 feels like.

    Is it odd it feels the same as 20 did?

    Today, more than usual I am turning myself inward

    Today, more than usual I am thinking about cherished memories

    Today, I am embracing the reality of death that sits with us all

    Today, I understand what matters

    Today, I have no desire for a gift

    Today, I have the greatest gift I could ever wish for in a Mindset that embraces my role

    My role I signed up for

    My role to embrace tension

    My role to Care

    My role to do the right thing even when its in private

    My role to try daily to exhibit true empathy

    Today I look into my daughters eyes and understand what I must provide

    Today I embrace my eventual end happily with a simple approach that the direction is never to scramble at the perceived end to be a good man but as the stoics believed


    “Waste no more time arguing about what a good man should be. Be one.”

    Marcus Aurelius

    I say to my dear friends and family to today, if inclined to do or say a nice thing to me instead do something nice for someone, anyone in your day instead.

    Thank you
