A few months ago, a friend and I decided that we would do 40 extraordinary things to celebrate our 40th birthdays. Mine is coming up in a few months, and I have already started to do things that I might otherwise have been too timid, financially or time restricted, or otherwise hesitant to do. I am diving deep into all of those things that have been cast aside for someday as the somedays of my life slowly dwindle in size. Every Friday for the next 40 weeks, I am going to write about one of the 40 new things I intentionally chose to experience as a part of this endeavor. And I am also intentionally choosing to continue this tradition, only increasing the number of new things I will do to match the number of years in my life. When I turn 53, I shall need to do more than one thing per week!
