Show Notes for Mastering Midlife Podcast

Midlife is like an Alcoholic’s bottom.

Alcoholic’s in recovery have figured out that it is harder and more painful to keep doing what they are doing than to try a new path.

Midlifers also realize something has to change, and at some point, they muster the motivation to do so.

For both, the task to look at life realistically, and make different choices is daunting, and both need tools and support to make those choices.

The mind is a “drunk monkey that has been stung by a scorpion.” It’s not going to help cure what ails us, we need to source from a different place.

Pen and paper, a good book or an inspirational video are your best friends.

Sobriety and the gifts of midlife exploration are beyond what you can imagine.
