... it can hurt a little to see your offspring “moving on.” ...----If you're up to it get a pet. We have a little dog
that is always happy to see us. We have had chickens which after being outside
would stand by our door and we let them in for a while to walk around the house
and then to sleep. They would set on anyones lap and on a shoulder. They are
very friendly creatures, each with their own 'personality' and it
isn't hard to fall in love with one, .. really.
That sounds like a great place to be in. But I totally agree - mid-life crisis
happens. The things we worry about or feel about have grown with the family.
I, personally, get a hankering for more school. Thank goodness for free online
courses with rigorous challenges!
I think you think too much.
I enjoyed this article so much! I can relate to each of the sentiments expressed
and love how the author flipped her top 5 struggles to showcase 5 perks. We
truly can take our weaknesses and turn them into strengths with the Lord's
help. Every season have life has a cause for celebration.
I wish all mid-life crises were as innocent. I was recently speaking to a
friend who is a well-known divorce lawyer. She commented how the majority of
the cases she was involved in were women who were divorcing (in her words
"imperfect but good men") to go find themselves. Several had come full
circle and after a couple of years with the women returning to their families
and wanting to reconcile. At that point, however, the ex-husband and the
children had moved on and not too excited about welcoming back the woman who had
walked away from them.I mid-life crises can be fun if it means a new
convertible or a new wardrobe. Just make sure in the turnover you are keeping
the things of real value.
