The period in our lives referred to as “middle age” is puzzling to many of us. It’s also fraught with difficulty. A large part of any middle-aged man’s life means meeting new challenges, coping with loss, keeping our sanity, and figuring out how we can possibly become our best selves the rest of the way forward.
We’re faced with this question: out of the many iterations of ourselves we have gone through to this point, what version do we want to be the rest of the way?
“I, Middle-Aged Man” discusses changes that happen in our lives mainly to our mindsets and perspectives, and the transformations that happen – some necessary, some circumstantial – through our experiences. For some of us, this time in our lives accompanies a loss of our own identity; who we are, what we do and what our thirst, drive and direction is in pursuit of a renewed purpose. Some of us panic or freak out. Some of us make big purchases. Some of us lose confidence in ourselves. Some of us reflect on the old days and wonder where it all went wrong.
But does it all have to be that way?
“I, Middle-Aged Man” is broken into three parts; find out The Truths in Part I, commit to The Covenants in Part II, and enjoy a rejuvenated perspective in The Next Phase in Part III.
