Mid Life Curiosity

Anything You'd Like To Say?
Anything You'd Like To Say?

Ever have those routine conversations that take you to a cool place? A thought-provoking place that raises questions that aren’t often raised?

Not talking about alcohol or drug stimulated thought-provoking questions, but straight-forward, no bull, full-on, hard-core life questions.

Things like:

Am I no longer king of the hill?

Why is everything turning gray, everywhere?

Why am I so out of shape?

Do others still find me attractive?

Do I still have “it”?

Why am I no longer king of intellectual capital?

Is there any hope to turn my life around?

Mid Lifers, do you ever feel like this? Any advice to others? You’re welcome to be part of the conversation. No expectation, but plenty of opportunity.

  1. So I’m finishing up my lunch time run on the Mall in DC today. I’m heading back to my office and feeling pretty good that I ran all five days this week (rededicating myself to better health and exercise).

    A man is walking the other direction and looks at me and says…”good job…keep it up”.

    First I had a flash back to the blog I wrote for you about this very subject…

    Then I thought…oh man, I must look pretty bad for him to say this to me.

    Bottom line…it lifted my spirits even if for just a few moments.

    We can/do make a difference in peoples’ lives if we try.

  2. Skip, my brother, rock on with your bad self.
    Rededication is an ongoing process and so glad you are engaged in it.
    Inspire yourself and you’ll inspire others.
    Inspiring others brings you back to being inspired.
    It’s a great synergy.
    Not many understand it, and even fewer practice it.
    And as I write this very sentence, it just occurred to me that I’ve never articulated this in any of the 2,300+ blog posts I’ve written.
    So, my friend, thank you for the gift you just provided.
    Stay motivated. And keep motivating. But don’t get dizzy. 🙂
