Youth is overrated. As a fellow 39er, I don’t miss all the insecurity, emotional angst, concern for social norms and constructs, nor do I miss being impressionable. I wish it was possible to have the wisdom and experience of being 40 with the physical benefits of being 25, but it kind of is what it is. I think the emotional troubles and lack of knowledge were more crippling than the physical pains of nearing 40. This was a fun read, thanks for sharing.
