A friend of mine likes to joke about his struggles in growing up.
When I was in my 20s, he quips, I felt that by the time I was 40 I would have grown up enough to let go of my bad habits. But, when I turned 40, I gave myself an extra 10 years, promising myself that by age 50, I'd have conquered these habits. Well, now I'm in my 50s and I've promised myself that by age 60, I'll be more mature and more serious about the deeper things in life.
