So my name is Lucas, born on this day 43 years and bred in this great city in the sun, married 12 years to a remarkable lady, proud father of 3 totos, founded and running an events business for the last 16 years and now at this cross roads. have been at this crossroads for the last 3 years since i turned 40. I hate the common term used called midlife crisis so I won’t call it that. so today is the 3rd year crossroads (read confusion) anniversary. so today 31st march 2017, i invite you to share your thoughts and read mine, especially for those in my space in life. i know we are many.
I’ve wanted to start writing for the last 3 years since I turned 40. It’s a crazy age I tell you. I read a book from cover to cover, which is a big feat for me as I’m a very poor reader. The book HALF TIME by bob Buford is a brilliant book. Reason I read it is because I’ve been on a search since I turned 40 and so I thought it would provide some guidance. It definitely helped but almost 3 years later I’m still on this search and writing here is one more attempt in my search. What search? You may ask.
What it’s all about? Life. Why I’m I hear? Why do I feel like there’s still so much I haven’t done or should have done? My significant others tell me I’ve done so well at my age but why do I see and feel the opposite of that. Like I should have been further in my business, my financial security and my life as a whole. Is this all I could have done in 40 years? It’s such a long time to have only come this far. I should have done better.
So on the morning of 31st march 2014 when I woke up this were the questions and thoughts in my head. Instead of celebrating my life I questioned and felt disappointed in myself. Panic and fear soon checked in and I had a physical reaction to my age (choo).
This seemingly huge crisis has finally forced me to share my life now with other chaps (who I know are many) and I hope that as many of us as possible will come out on the other side of this labyrinth having found our significance. And what better day to start this new chapter of my life than today, the day i was born.
