Mid Life Crisis Choices?
Yes. There are choices all day, every day. Like yesterday, when I posted about the person making snide remarks. My patience was quickly evaporating by the lack of what I would call “personal respect”.
There was a mid life crisis moment of choice – take the high road or take the low road.
