Today I turn 31. Wow. 31.
My dad had 2 kids by the time he was 31.
Paul McCartney sold 100 million records and had literally conquered the world by the age of 31. Oh, yeah, and his band had broken up already by the time he was 31.
Bono had made his most successful record (Joshua Tree) and was working on releasing his (and U2's) greatest artistic achievement (Achtung Baby) by the age of 31.
Jimi Hendrix had changed his name, changed the world of music and overdosed before he ever came close to 31.
Stevie Wonder had been signed for almost 20 years by the time he reached 31. The 70's brought Stevie unbelievable success and his albums changed the landscape of R&B music. And he didn't turn 31 until 1981. Sick.
I could continue to go on...but the point is this...I've been incredibly blessed thus far. But I have so much to do! And I'm excited to see what the future holds.
Here's to 31!
