      My twenties and thirties were important and valuable. But now that I’m in my forties, looking forward, I’m not sure they were important and valuable enough for me to miss all that they might make me miss. It’s a difference in the generations, I know.

It just feels like everything else does anymore— like I’m running out of time.
