It was along such a stretch, with everyone else having dozed off, that I suddenly realized that I was very probably, half way through my life.
So, there you have it.
Middle age could be defined by reaching that point in life when you realized that you probably didn’t take full advantage of the first half of your life, or even that you might have actually…… carelessly squandered it!
Worse still, is the realization that by now, you are probably not going to live long enough to do all the things that you imagined or thought that you would be doing or seeing all those places you wanted to visit.
I wonder if this means I am having a mid life crisis? Although I always associated that with running away with ones secretary (which I don’t have!) or buying an unfeasibly large motorbike……(although actually, I would quite like a motorbike!)
Seriously though, I aways thought that a mid life crisis happened to guys who were bored with life, stuck in a rut kind of scenario, office bods and the like.
I now realize that middle age is not so much about what you are doing right now, but rather what you have been doing your whole life up to this point and more importantly, where your life is heading from tomorrow onwards.
So, what do you think makes a good mid life crisis? What makes you want to throw it all in and do something that others may consider daft?
