Who you are includes who you've been, and that includes who you've imagined being.
Woke up thinking--I've been here over 12 years, and I've not attended a single wedding or funeral.
I went to bed thinking--the complacency etc. of my parents and their generation drove me nuts when I was young. But the future disasters I saw for my lifetime are mostly still in the future. They'll shape the lives of the next generation or the generation after that.
