Sayonara Roaring Twenties: Thirty Phrases for My Twenty-Year-Old Self

JohnLennonAnother decade marked off my personal timeline and this one included a tremendous amount of pain, growth, setbacks, happiness, triumph, frustration, and wisdom.

When I look back at my previous decade – from age ten through nineteen – I was naïve and reactionary to the world. There was a path set out for me and I followed that path. Get through school, play sports, participate in extra-curricular activities, and go along with whatever the family planned.

In 2005, I waved goodbye to that adolescent decade in a Continue Reading

The Three Stages of Adulthood

A friend forwarded me information about an upcoming music festival which had one of my old favorite bands as the headliner. I looked at the link and had no desire to go. I quickly reflected, “That was a fun phase.”

My mindset has drastically shifted since those mosh pit days where I now enjoy going to see music with reserved seats. My twenty-year old self would call me out for being a square, but you know what twenty-year old Dan, I ENJOY BEING A SQUARE! I rather sit down and enjoy watching a band play with the Colorado Symphony than bash into other mosh pit participants.phases

Favorite vacation spots, hobbies, hair styles, music tastes, and other daily habits enter our lives with importance and then are nostalgically, or embarrassingly, reflected upon by our older selves.

The Jerk Store Called. They’re Running Out of Me.

You ready for a story? The day after my fiancée and I became engaged, we were driving back home in separate cars. We pulled off the highway and she navigated the traffic quicker than I due to my “grandpa” driving habits. I then became halted in stopped traffic with sirens up ahead in the distance.

I panicked. Is my fiancée hurt up there? I noticed that the far-right lane was moving while every other lane was stopped. In my fear, I cut off one of the moving vehicles so I could witness the reason for the sirens to see if my fiancée was hurt.

oopsTurns out, I cut off a funeral procession. Oops. The person behind me honked and screamed after I cut them off and I now know why. This motorist and the onlookers viewed me as a jerk and I admit, what I did was a very low move. However, my point is that our culture needs to give strangers benefit of the doubt. Continue Reading
