Lifestyle changed ... All grown up

I see pictures and status updates on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and I realized... I really don't go anywhere anymore. And the thing is... I am perfectly fine with that. I work 4 10 hour days and I have a full time college course load...And also a full time husband and a full time father.  I get invited to events and places, but hardly go... Not because I don't want to celebrate or be supportive. Its because I'm tired! ... I guess some will say, I'm just getting old... But when did taking care your responsibilities mean that you are old? That is a immature mindset. It just doesn't make sense to me. I do feel like I am out of the loop sometimes...But being out of the loop sometimes has its advantages. (Less people in your business) I guess it's just a question of what is more important in your life right now... I'm 33, why the hell would I want to go to the club? There is nothing there for me... Its played out too... And I have done enough clubbing for 2 people. I see people talking about shows that I haven't seen one episode of. And it's not because I'm not interested in it, it's just that the little time that I have to sit down in front of the TV to watch something my daughter is usually with me. And the majority of the shows today are inappropriate for her. I never really looked at it as getting old though... I guess it's just a lifestyle change... Again, I'm 33...I m not breaking my neck to pretend like I'm 18 or in my 20's...I got a mortgage on a house. There is nothing wrong with being a family man. I don't smoke... I rarely drink... Im not trying to impress anyone... I just hope that my family and friends know that I love them and will be there for them when they truly need me... But Pooh is all grown up now and my daughter and wife deserves the best me for them, and that is what I'm giving them. At this point in my life, this is the right thing to do...

  1. I feel the same way. I have people inviting me out at least once or twice a week. Sometimes I feel bad about not going, but I feel my free time is better spent at home with the family. Very well said.
