Happy birthday to me!! Haha
Turning 40ish for the nth time makes a man reflect on his situation and what the last year has brought him. So please excuse the self indulgent post today, but there are several people I want to thank for making this year meaningful.
Firstly, I want to give a shout out to my kids Hudson and Spencer as they light up my life like no other. It’s the simple things that make it awesome: we listen to Aussie rock, shoot nerf darts at each other, go camping, wrestle, watch superhero movies and just do guy things. So much fun!! Bummer they are taller and faster than me now!
Secondly, my sister Petie and Matt her husband have been a remarkable support for me and the boys. Always lending a hand and with a big smile and offering a beer. Their awesome people.
Thirdly, I met a special someone mid last year and she is a remarkable woman. Jin is an inspiring woman with a work ethic I haven’t seen in many entrepreneurs, a deep love of her family and (lucky for me) gorgeous too :) Love you babe x
Finally, there are so many other people that have given me a boost over the last year. All my staff and clients, my mates, my siblings, supporters on social and more. I can’t list everyone as so many!
I believe there is always balance in life so know that for all things that are perceived as good have equal amounts of perceived challenge. Hence the yin & yang tattoo on my left wrist!
This year also brought some tough challenges, especially with a special member of my family being not well. It’s hard, but you got to work through these things and remain positive. Take the blessings from all things.
So with my birthday only a few hours away, I say thank you to each and everyone of you who has made the last 365 days totally awesome!!
