Life’s second half. Comes right after the first half – and ends, at the end.
When and how do we know we are done with our first half, and when are we ready to move on with the second half?
If you think of life expectancy of 80 (I’m aiming for 115), then your mid-point is 40. But most people have their mid-life crisis at 50 or later.
Where is their mid-point, their shift to their second half?
These terms make me think football – maybe that midlife point ought to be renamed the half-time show.
Thinking about what comes next, questioning how best to use experiences I’ve rushed through life to accumulate. Should I put it on a page – or put it to work? Should I keep it here, or should I take it on the road?
