A Bona Fide Midlife Crisis!

For all of you who have been reading my blog each time I publish, I ask you this...has anyone noticed that this indeed is a bona fide midlife crisis in my life?

Here is how Cathy Meyer at describes the symptoms of a midlife crisis.

Unhappiness with life and the lifestyle that may have provided you with happiness for many years.

Boredom with people and things that may have been of interest to you before.

Feeling a need for adventure and change.

Questioning the choices, you have made in your life and the validity of decisions made years before.

Confusion about who you are and where you are going.

Anger at your spouse and blame for feeling tied down.

Unable to make decisions about where they want to go with their life.

A few of these may apply given the content of my previous blogs. How about that. I am a typical person experiencing a midlife crisis. I wanted to view this time as something so much more positive than that.

I am experiencing my midlife crisis but I prefer to look at it as a midlife quest. A quest for new directions and things that matter. All the writings on the subject indicate that it is, despite it's trite handle, a redefining, reinventing stage of our lives and that we need to be patient and let the experience unravel as it should. There is a peaceful knowing in that.
