I turn 40 in a couple of weeks. There’s a lot of things I miss these days. Looking over my list, I realize I can fix most of those, if I want. Then there are the things I don’t miss. I’m glad I’ve moved along with my life and left those things behind.

What do you miss from your younger days? What are you glad you left behind?.
