Yesterday, the proverbial fork in the road…
- One path – The Herd
- Other path – The Movement
This is going to be fun as April Fool’s Day approaches. After two solid years of daily Five-a-Day blogging, Mid Life Celebration embarks on a different path. Same destination.
Life is pretty simple. We’re born. We grow. We live. We die.
Midlife offers us an enormous opportunity to decide on a few things, with one of the biggest being this question:
Am I going through the motions?
Isn’t that what leads us to the proverbial midlife crisis?
Ambition. Can’t live with it. Can’t live without it.
Or can we? Live without it, I mean.
And maybe not live without it, but alter the course of our ambition.
I mean, alter it from selfish to selfless.
And by selfish, I don’t mean to say it’s wrong to be professionally ambitious.
And by selfless, I don’t mean we should sell all our belongs and live with just the shirt on our back.
But there is this rare opportunity, at it’s peak in mid life, that we can really get serious about where we currently are and where we ultimately want to end up.
Most likely, at midlife, these are two diametrically opposed paths.
