When you've had a life like mine you maximize on your opportunities to live fully and completely. After all at age 40, your needs change and so does the company you keep. You simply have less tolerance or the need to have so called friendships with people who add little to no value in your life. Beware of energy suckers, or people stuck in ruts! It's all about forward and upward mobility or you'll find yourself stagnate . Be wise!
