Getting it Together after Fifty


I think we pretty much all are in agreement by the time we reach fifty and sixty: Life is not a simple thing! In fact, in many ways, it just becomes more complex the older we get. The good news is that we now have a rich arsenal of experience upon which to draw as we face each new challenge. We are better equipped to find the meaning and purpose in our day-to-day existence and we finally have the mental and emotional time and freedom to do so.

This chapter in our lives is a work in progress, just like every chapter that has gone before. We think about things, struggle with things, grow and change, evaluate and discard and it’s all good. Here are a few of the things I’ve been thinking about. I always enjoy your thoughts and value your feedback. Sharing the journey makes it richer for all of us.
