Mellowing with age: In my youth there was a very distinct delineation between fun activities and work activities. The work related caused an undercurrent of disgruntlement; watching a sunny day go by and not being able to "enjoy it." Now, I enjoy work as much as not working. The same is true for traveling verses staying home. A worthwhile, great vacation had to be foreign expensive and exotic. Then, I asked myself, why is there better than here? Aren't I always chasing what's on the other side of the fence? I think I'm much happier focusing on here and now.
