I've always heard of stories of people who expected an earth-shattering kaboom with a side dish of enlightenment for their 30th birthday, only to be horribly disappointed that they never got it. My 30th birthday has come and gone. I felt pretty much the same way on that very day. A week has passed, and I finally sat down to write an entry confirming everyone else's observation. As I was reflecting on the weekend, it hit me. It hit me hard. Something has changed. Something is different. Nothing will ever be the same again. No it wasn't literally a kaboom that shattered the earth. It even took me a whole week to make it real. It is shocking to have learned what I had learned. Was it enlightening? Well, that depends on what you mean by enlightening. It has caused a small paradigm shift in my head. Is it good? That's highly debatable. I have no idea what the long-term ramifications will be or even short-term... I just don't know. All I know is that the way I look at the world is changing... The way I look at myself is changing... All I know is that I don't know. Man, isn't life wonderful... :D Here's to another 30 years!
