Life has a way of rewarding us when we least expect it.
Life has a way of punishing us when we least expect it.
By midlife (which is relative), we should be fully aware that we will get our fair share of both. And that in either case, the timing can not be predicted.
Do you understand this?
Do you prepare for this?
Do you react to it?
Or do you celebrate because of it?
If you are seriously looking for more peace at midlife, or any life stage, being prepared for the unexpected is key.
Common sense, but not common practice.
