Around the age of 40, both men and women tend to descend into a crisis about getting old, running out of time to meet their goals, and questioning life choices.
If you don’t focus on the abilities that grow as you get older, you might perceive aging as an unmitigated loss, which will be a source of suffering. But you can work to avoid that fate by making two wise decisions about how to think about midlife.
I am inching towards my midlife, assuming I live till the age of 80, and a lot of questions keep cropping up in my mind. Thinking about our son’s future, the future of our planet, my career, my goals, retirement, health, etc. etc.
But embracing my age and the benefits it brings far outweighs the uncertainties.
I am sharing this article with the hope that people who are lost can regain their focus and choose to live a happy, peaceful and fulfiled life.
