Yes, we should “roll with it”, mid life, that is. There is no avoiding it. Is there? Maybe if our lives are cut short, we could avoid mid life, but that’s really the only way. Who wants that?
Not me. So what can a person do? Why not “roll with it“. A phrase I learned a long time ago. It means to take whatever you are given and “roll with it“, or make the most of it.
If you can’t change what you are given or presented with, why not make something good from it? Because if we don’t, then we are destined, it would seem, to complain. Who wants that? Here, let me demonstrate how simple this concept is. Please pay attention, it’s over in ten seconds.
Aren’t our days great when we can be thankful for the simple things? Like a long (and maybe boring) plane flight that arrives safely. Like a friend who’s willing to drive the rental car so you can gaze uninterrupted at the beauty of a new place. And like the ability to act like a teenager, while in mid life, when an Alaskan Moose walks in front of your vehicle. Carpe diem.
