With age comes…

images-1With age comes….so many things.   It is something I have been thinking a lot about over the course of this summer but this tiny kernel around this started sometime at the end of last year.  Every year as summer winds down I so enjoy the pace of my life that I state I am going to take it down a notch but this year is different.

I am getting older and perhaps wiser.  I am seeing a shift in the start-up industry where I spend the majority of my day.  I am two years away from our last child graduating college.  You aren’t really an empty nester until they graduate college.  I am not sure how this all ends up but I am giving myself permission to not be ridiculously busy.  This is purely a shift because it will take a few years to not fill the space of the day.

I am going to continue to invest but not as much.  This is just as much as a reaction to the winds as much as it is a reaction to where my head is at.  I will spend as much time focusing on the investments I have made but as they move forward my involvement will slowly recede as it should.

There are a few other things out there happening which I will share over time.  I am looking forward to the year ahead.  More travel, more time with family and friends, more time on personal projects, more time to breath. My biggest fear is being bored.  It is something I do not do well with but this is a start of a shift.  It is not even close to there.

What my day to day will look like in a few years will be different than it is today.  Change here will take time and that is a good thing.  I am sure I will find something to fill those gaps down the line and what it is I have zero idea.  I’m putting on a new head for a new journey.  I am pretty psyched.
