Learning to Love Brussel Sprouts…and Midlife.

May 29, 2023

As we get older, classical music sneaks up on us. So, do naps, fine wine, and the appeal of organic vegetables and sunscreen. With age comes an appreciation for things we neglected when we were younger.

In my late thirties, I dreaded the idea of midlife. “American Beauty” was a horror movie. I didn’t want to be Kevin Spacey when I grew up. It felt like such an emotionally-dehydrated life stage, and if you survived it, all you had to look forward to was disease, decrepitude, and death. 

And, then, I experienced it, and, yes, I had my U-curve of Happiness dip right around 47-49, but on the other side, I had my best decade ever, my fifties. 

Based upon all I’ve learned personally, as well as the thousands of life stories I’ve witnessed at MEA, I’ve written a book that will be coming out on January 16, “Learning to Love Midlife: 12 Reasons Why Life Gets Better With Age.” My special “ask” is that you pre-order a copy and tell your friends about the book as we not only need to learn how to love midlife, but we need to learn how to love ourselves in midlife. 

P.S. SPECIAL OFFER TO WISDOM WELL SUBSCRIBERS If you order “Learning to Love Midlife” for a friend, we’ll give you a copy of the book for free. Here’s the link to that special offer. Two of my last three books sold out of their Amazon supply in the first month, so preordering it assures you’ll receive it when it’s available to the public in mid-January. And, for those of you who’d like to make a bulk order of books, click on the link to access some great discounts..
