The reward for being a midlife warrior isn’t readily apparent

Try to tell the Great Dane he is not a lap dog. Try to tell ourselves we can be anything.


Second day back from the four-day Senior Assisted Living and Nursing Home visit. Wrapping up the afterglow, inspiration and insight with today’s five posts.

The reward for being a midlife warrior isn’t readily apparent. Bottomline reality is this:

Life is hard.

In nature, it’s called the food chain. Everyday, living things must accept their place in the chain and fight for their survival. Nature never takes a day off.

We can take solace in knowing our weariness from the daily grind is a gift. Or we can carry an unbearable burden if we see this as a curse.

Choose wisely.

Be fit. It’s the only way to thrive.
