    Superb! (Though you were much younger that 43!) Love the challenge rather than advice route. the listening challenge is interesting too. Especially for men – myself in particular. So honest and open – an inspiration. An open and yet disciplined mind is key – I struggle with the latter. Why should anyone be ‘forced’ by convention, expectation and peer pressure to know what they should be doing at such a young age, especially 16-18-22 – systematic ‘imposed’ deadlines.
    Late late 20’s was when options and other paths emerged, after tasting and trying many, many things, often as a volunteer and often by accident than design. (At 56 I still don’t know what to be and have been lots of things.)
