The last year of my life has been one filled with a tremendous amount of change, challenges, and learning. I’ve reached a plethora of major life milestones. I’m a new home owner. I’m an elected official, trusted by my peers to make the right decisions for our community. Things at my day job have been going very well and I may be looking at another promotion in the not so distant future. And I’m in the best shape of my life. To say the least, things have been going well for me. And I’m absolutely proud of everything that I’ve accomplished in my life thus far.
Every once in a while however, something comes along and it makes you take a step back and think about things. You know what I’m talking about. It’s different from everybody. Nonetheless however, things change in life and we often find ourselves at crossroads. We meet new challenges, learn new lessons, and grow as human beings. A combination of two things recently made me step back and take a look at my outlook on life. One is a girl, who is quickly becoming very special to me. The second is Minecraft.
