I probably shouldn't complain. I'm lucky to even have a job, especially one that I love, given where things are these days.
You know, I really do miss being a kid. I miss being oblivious to the troubles of the world. I miss having my biggest worry be uncontrollable feelings and broken toys. Those were the days. Life seemed so complicated then, but I guess it takes perspective to realize how simple it really was.
Don't get me wrong, there's plenty in my life that I'm happy about. I appreciate the fact that I have a wonderful wife who loves me. I'm grateful to have a wonderful line of work. I'm thankful that I have self-confidence, and self-worth – both of which I lacked as a young teen.
But, sometimes, I just long for the days, when life was... simple.
