I’m 43 Years Young Today

Yep, today is my birthday and I turn 43 but I genuinely don’t feel it. Not sure if my body is holding up well or if it’s my sunny disposition but I regularly hear guys complaining about getting old; I just don’t feel it.

It’s not to say that I don’t get the occasional pain here and there or that my metabolism is still running at rabbit speed (my belly can attest to that). I just honestly feel young. :)

I also feel really fortunate to have made it this far and been able to experience so many awesome things. I have an incredible wife and four amazing daughters. I’m in a really good space.

So if this is what getting old is like, then I’m looking forward to it. :)

  3. Just found out but wanted to wish you a happy birthday old man!

  4. Happy Birthday Rey.

    In February I turned 43 +20 and I still feel young. Folks ask me when I’m going to retire and my answer is why. I’m constantly learning new things (jquery the latest) on a daily basis and although my hair is more salt than pepper, inside the fire still roars. I’m sure it will be the same for you in twenty plus years.

  5. Rey,

    Happy Birthday, and the monthly South Florida JavaScript User Group meetings are excellent for knowledge sharing.

    Best regards, Rob

  6. As it is customary to demark a persons continued survival on an annual basis, I want to contragulate you on your continued existence. Errr… I mean happy birthday.

  7. I’m late in seeing this, but Happy Birthday!!

    And thanks for making my 38 feel young :)
