A Midlife Crisis Transformed

As we all know, the first step to solving any problem is to first admit you have a problem. How do you  identify the signs that you are entering into or are smack in the middle of a midlife crisis? Here are a few symptoms that should give you pause:

  1. Questioning who you are
  2. Feeling trapped fiscally
  3. Hard to concentrate
  4. Desire to get fit and improve your appearance
  5. Desire to learn something new
  6. Irritability
  7. A desire to simplify your life

If you are in your forties or early fifties, these symptoms grow and gradually build into a “crisis.”  The good news is that it doesn’t have to become a crisis, if you recognize and embrace the transformation that is at hand.

Acknowledge this event and let your internal inspirations rise up and create a new and better life. Most people will try to deny they are experiencing midlife changes and that can delay transformation.

Identify it!  Accept it!  And Embrace it!

Doing nothing allows crisis to take control of your life. Taking action allows you to transform crisis into inspiration and positive change. A midlife crisis can be a turning point.

This is not a time for isolation but a time to surround yourself with those who can help you through this transformation. Acknowledge that transformation is a process that takes time to evolve.  It’s important to note that working through this event with your partner will help you both and bring you closer together as a couple.

It’s now time to take pause, examine your options and chart a path to positive transformation. You are in control of your life.



I would just like to add something regarding the mid-life crisis. It intensifies should there be a major upset to living and or lifestyle during these years. And the further one is into middle age, the deeper the crisis. For example, if one day everything is just fine and dandy, then you find out after arriving to work that you no longer have a job, then this could really trigger off a crisis of sorts, kicking in financial, lifestyle, relationships, and of course, health issues just by the loss of a job.
There are other events that can trigger some or all of the above, but the jobs thing is pretty relative
in today;s uncertain times. A young man, or woman, has time to bounce back but the 40 to 60 year old doesn’t share that same privilege.
It’s not all doom and gloom though, so long as the problem is acknowledged, shared, and acted upon, or as Debi says in the article, one has to admit that one has a problem to start with.
Perhaps i could end on one of my favourite sayings; “He who has health has hope, and he who has hope has everything” ~ Wayne Dyer
