Twenty Twenty (2) In Review

Time continues to move very quickly. I'm 1/7th the average lifespan of a Bowhead whale.

The transition to WFH and into a new position have been transformative in ways I haven't fully realized. Working from home requires a certain level of discipline that I've been flexing and growing in other areas of my life as well. It has been paying off in both my physical and mental well-being. It seems obvious that bodies won't operate well on frozen pizza, spoonfuls of peanut butter, and a 2nd shift sleeping schedule; but the results are really speaking for themselves.

I forgot how much I like to read. I'm suddenly 13 and devouring books like they're the only window into an exciting life I have. Except now, I'm a grown man and ALSO have friends.

Long distance relationships are hard, but time spent together does feel more meaningful and intentional. That said, there is a certain easy charm to silently sitting together with coffee on a Sunday morning knowing that neither of you has to make the seemingly endless drive home and back to a life where physical affection seems worlds away.

Speaking of discipline and intentionality, putting more effort into this website and my own professional development has been an unexpected creative outlet and boon.

God, grant me the serenity to accept the weather I cannot change, courage to do stuff even when the weather sucks, and wisdom to know when to stay inside.
