Happy Birthday Will! As a fellow 44 year old, I feel so much of what you’re going through, although I guess I’m about a year behind you in my efforts. I feel that tiredness, that mental fatigue, that frustration of non-creation. It does make you an unhappier person, which impacts your work and those around you. So like you, I’m dealing with it and working through these same things. I even did physical therapy on my hip this year because it was hurting every day. (Mine was due to years of cycling and building muscle without stretching afterwards.)
Thanks for being an inspiration and being honest and open about the changes and the struggles that come with it. Here’s to another 44 cycles around the sun!!
