Our guest did not work out this weeks. We are again on our own. Before we started recording, we were discussing our philosophy on what a Midlife Crisis looks like and decided to roll with that topic. But first, Gary’s hitting the road back to Washington and I wanted to know what it takes for him to pack up and hit the road. Turns out he has got some interesting stories about his travels.
I would not say I have had a midlife crisis. Now that I am getting older and hitting the second half of my life, I have been reflective on my past and have refocused myself on what I want to do for the rest of my life. In doing this, the goal is to be happier and better provide for my family. If you were observing this, you may assume I have hit a midlife crisis. I don’t, for a minute, feel like I am in any kind of crisis mode. What I am doing is taking control and doing the things necessary to be happier. And no, I do not want to go out and buy an expensive sports car. (OK, maybe I do want to buy a sports car.) But if I did, I would do it responsibly and not on a whim.
I think when you get my age, you realize you have acquired certain wisdom. When you are in your early 20’s, you think you are wise and you do things that you assume is the right thing to do. Once you hit your mid 40’s, you then may find yourself stuck in a job that, in your early life, looked great, but now you are stuck and wonder where your dreams went. Because of this, you may observe a midlife crisis.
