Caught up today with college BFF. We are both highly educated, historically super ambitious/driven, have “impressive jobs.” But we are both now mid 30s with young kids and completely demotivated at work despite having interesting jobs.

I want to feel excited about work again, not just going thru the motions for a paycheck

Have you and your spouses found any good / unique ways to have a date night recently?
