A Real Life Precipice
Have you ever been on the precipice of a midlife crisis? If you’re into climbing sheer Mountain cliffs and jumping off with a pair of wings attached to your body, you may not have any problem with that type of a precipice. You either fall, crashing at the bottom of the cliff, as a pile of broken bones and flesh, or you soar on to a graceful landing in a peaceful valley far below. The adrenaline rush alone should be plenty to keep you from ever having an old fashioned midlife crisis.
You may never question yourself about the changes happening in your mind and body, at least while soaring like an eagle. You have shown complete control to any doubtful body or mental questions that may come up. As our bodies age we sometimes loose that assured, can do all ego. It can be a devastating, destructive part of aging, or the halftime of life in the locker room searching for a new game plan.
“As we approach mid-life, many times we pause and look back to see what kind of impact we have made. Many of us feel like we’re in a “mid-life crisis”; frustrated to see we worked our entire life to achieve success to find it still left us feeling empty and unfulfilled. But how does someone do this? How does someone navigate this unique season of life through the rough waters of a mid-life crisis as they look back at their first half of life and chart the course for their second half?” Seeking help is a good first step.
