Introduction to Episode

Since I’m 42, that must mean I know the answer to life, the universe, and everything, right? Wrong! I share four things, top of mind, that I have kind of figured out as I enter my 42nd year.

Podcast Episode Summary

For this birthday episode, I reflect on four things that I’ve been working on or seem super relevant to me from the past year. 

  1. I don’t know everything
  2. Boundaries
  3. Marriage (stated Mawage)
  4. Me Time

I love getting older because every year, I get a little more confident in my being, even if I’m still working on things from decades before. Every year, I get to own myself a little bit more, warts and all. And, in today’s episode, I discuss these four things as an answer to 42, the answer to life, the universe, and everything.
