  1. Are we independent midlife heretics?
  2. Are we desiring independence from the Herd, status quo?
  3. Could there be such a thing as a midlife Independence day?

Yes, yes, and yes.

In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot. – Mark Twain

Many critics, few patriots.

The cost of midlife personal responsibility is high.

The price of freedom in achieving it – priceless.

No one is going to climb our mountain for us.

You’re Lucky To Have A Job

The other day I overheard a lunch conversation about how sick people are of hearing from their employers (for the past decade), “You are lucky to have a job!”

It’s true. People are sick of it.

It’s true. The employers are right.

Be the last to lose a contagiously positive attitude, and be the first to regain it.

Things will eventually get better.

Meanwhile, I’d like to offer a 3rd option.

Never lose it and continue to be the change you wish to see in others.
