We avoid truth when we ignore our mid-life crisis as a right-of-passage. Alas, instead we see it as a dangerous chapter in our life’s story. But what if we had them (midlife crisis) all the time? What if we took the resources and trust we’ve earned, and shared the momentum we’ve gained, and use it to help ourselves let go of the other stuff?
Dear Son, the dreams we had of buying this thing or that, plus the security of having a rainy day fund – it all vanished. A poor attitude would have focused on this. Instead, the joy and sense of completeness we felt, and still feel, can not be bought at any earthly price. That is what a positive attitude will buy you.
Dear Son, watch nature. Learn from nature. Pay attention. Every living thing has an enemy, even those at the top of the food chain. Man is his own enemy. Like I said, pay attention. The first rule of nature is survival of the fittest.
