Turning 40

The countdown has begun and soon I will not be in the 30s something group. While some people dread the thought of going yonder 40 I would look upon it as a platform from where I can stand and take stock of my life. Have I led the life that I wanted to lead and am I prepared to go further in the direction that I want to take. There are certain things you can do better when you are 40 (like playing golf ;)) and certain things that might be beyond you when you are 40 (cant think of anything now!!!). Sometimes it is quite scary to think that half of my life is over but I think the better way to look at it is to plan how to spend the remaining half.

Now when I look back in life I can say that it has been quite a satisfying journey so far and the future seems even more exciting. A CA by qualification, 15 years in capital market, two scams, great parents, nice family, two wonderful kids, great friends – ya one can say it has been quite fulfilling. Having done what I wanted to do rather than doing what I was expected to do it would be true to say that I have led life on my own terms. Were the decisions I took right or were they wrong – well thats not for me to decide – but the crux of the matter is I have done what I wanted to do.

I would rather sum it up like this
“Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming ~ “WOO HOO, what a ride!”
