What screams, "I'm middle aged and insecure"?

I think of being secure is not giving a fuck about what anyone thinks. I AM recapturing some of my childhood by being into video games again (as well as introducing them to my 10 and 12 yr-old kids); I love that I can buy a AAA game without worrying about the cost whenever I want, unlike having to save up when I was a kid. I bought a motorcycle because I’ve wanted one for 20 years and am secure enough to afford it. Plus my wife encouraged me. Oh yeah, we’ve been married for 20 years and if I am “settling”, then fuck yeah I’d do it against. That woman is awesome. I also finally got the sleeve tattoo I’ve been wanting for 15 years 3 weeks ago. I had someone say, “someone is going through a midlife crisis”. Well, of course I am. Thank god I value life enough to put some effort into giving a shit and doing some of the things I’ve wanted to do for a long time. At least I’m not one of those people that shut down and cry over turning 45 or 50. Fuck yeah, I can’t wait to be 50. I’m going to embrace that shit.
