    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.

    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!

    ... 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.
