Well chaps, my 40th birthday has arrived. Starting a new thread in the next age category. What I really want for my birthday is a clean start. I'm gong to restart the counter and attempt to avoid those FMOs properly. Over the 2 years posting in this age category I have gone from almost nightly PMO's to fall asleep, sometimes compulsively and several times a day, to a pattern of a PMO binge on average every 20 days, and FMO every several days. I have progressed in a journey from a default of escapism, towards the new and better default of engaging with life and overcoming in positive helpful beneficial ways for me and those around me. I have grown my family and upgraded to a more spacious house. I have taken over a business on the side and built it up to the point where I can start to employ others for ad hoc jobs. If there has been any growth and improvement it's all thanks to the work of Christ in me. He is tremendous. The next phase looks like conquering PMO, building in helpful workflow routines and pouring myself into those things I am most passionate about. Thanks to all you champions in this age category. You will never know what even a "like" does for this battle. Just knowing someone is pulling alongside, that I'm not going it alone makes all the difference. Lately especially @BoughtWithBlood and @CleanBootsBaby! , thanks for your involvement, and all of you others who have weighed in, you know who you are. I will post here the odd updates and milestones and I want to keep checking in on your threads as well. Once I start that new thread I'll link it up here too. Let's go!
