Mid-Life and Henry David Thoreau?

Associate reverently, and as much as you can, with your loftiest thoughts.” — Henry David Thoreau

Anyone who falls into the temptation of thinking a mid-life crisis is the only path through our mid life journey, is missing, in my opinion, a huge mid-life opportunity to flourish, in a mid-lfe celebration.

Our thoughts about mid-life are really the ultimate factor in our attitude, and relative enjoyment of mid-life.

Personally, I feel a deep sense of thankfulness that I’ve reached mid life. Imagine the people you’ve known who never made it this far. What do you think they would have given to wake up this morning, and be presented with the challenge to see today as a mid-life crisis or a mid-life celebration?

I rest my case, your honor.

Carpe diem. 🙂
