bri’s ponderings

Who came up with the phrase “mid-life”? Was it from the old testament when folks lived to be 3 to 5 hundred years old? Was it the turn of 2 centuries ago when old age was 45? I suppose it’s all relative to how old you feel…how old do you feel and when is your mid-life?

    The only time you could know when you were of middle age is the day you die; therefor it stands to reason that you yourself can never know when you hit middle age – thus you are never middle-aged! Voila! Yippee! For example if you are thirty and walk outside and get hit by a piece of airline toilet ice and die, you were middle-aged when you were fifteen! If you are ninety and decide to take up spelunking and fall fifty feet onto a pile of calcified guano to your death, then your were middle-aged when you were 45.

    Buddah says, “what you think, you become” so I suggest we never think of ourselves as middle-aged, but rather: grateful-to-be-aging :-)
