At exaqueo, we're obsessive about balancing work with our lives. We work when our clients need us and want us--and we don't have strict rules about vacation or time off. I should know, I just came back from vacation, and everything had been handled in my absence, (beautifully I might add). My husband and I took this year's vacation to celebrate our 40th birthdays (and remind ourselves why we'd never want to be 21 again).
Exciting right? Well, if you watch TV or read the news, you wouldn't think so. Forget celebrating anything. I want to run under a rock and hide while I worry about war/health insurance/debt/climate change/hacking/guns/flag flying/borders/realityTV/what the hell happened to Bill Cosby.
So can hide, but we can't hide our age. When my parents turned 40, they only had to deal with "over the hill" gravestone signs for the neighbors to gawk at. Now Facebook, Twitter and this blog can let everyone know: tomorrow, on August 8th, I'm 40.
I'm 40 for good now. And to come out from hiding behind 40, I need your help. Instead of buying me a big present (as I know you were rushing out to do) do me a favor instead:
Don't forget to share your happiness with #40ForGood. Maybe we can stop talking about Donald and Hillary for a minute and instead talk about something better. Please?
