Mid-life Without the Crisis

It really isn't the destination, but the journey. May be cliche, but it's true.

Beginning the Journey

"The key to successful aging is to pay as little attention to it as possible. ~Judith Regan"

I'm discovering that it's not always easy to pay little attention to aging. It creeps up on you while you're sleeping, settles into your joints and your brain, and whispers to you, "You can't do that. You're too old to start something new."

But we have to fight it. Not with Botox and face lifts, but with energy, enthusiasm and the desire to learn something new. I once heard that every time you learn something, you create a wrinkle in your brain as it "expands" to accommodate that new knowledge. I don't know if that's true, but if so, I prefer creating brain wrinkles to ones elsewhere.

So I'm writing this blog to discover and share ways to create brain wrinkles, fight aging, and thrive after 40, an age that many of us never expected to arrive so quickly. I hope you'll join me on the journey.
