"Mid Life Crisis;You are considered to have a "Mid Life Crisis" when you have had a nervous breakdown between the ages of 30 and 60"
Pretty simple or is it?
Trips to the gym. New hair, clothes and shoe style. Maybe a new career. New interests and hobbies. New perspective and outlook on beliefs, morals and value. New friendships and relationships. Possibly what looks like temporary insanity....The mid-life crisis.
Usually symbolic with tighter abs, a red Mustang, a new and shiny Trophy wife. Maybe even Viagra.
The truth is...It's not just about the Men.
Women can, and do, g through it as well.
Fear not, it's not contagious and it doesn't happen to everyone, but it happens.
Even to moms.
Questioning everything from God, core beliefs to career paths, sex and beyond, the mid-life crisis can be scary, confusing and quite simply: A block in the road.
A road in which cupcakes, anniversaries and routine is now at crossroads with martinis, this season's pump and excitement.
No longer the old old self nor the family friendly new self,the mid-life crisis can feel like a freight train ready to hit...
The question is:
To hop on or pass and wait until it passes?
Hoping on can mean a new career path, a new spiritual path, letting go of things, people and places...
Waiting can mean passing on the urge for shiny new things and safely remaining at the station called Life.
There are no right or wrongs.
I hate it when that happens.
"Turn your midlife crisis to your own advantage by making it a time for renewal of your body and mind, rather than stand by helplessly and watch them decline".
