Posts Tagged ‘female mid-life crisis’


A few days ago I was reading up on the topic of women that aspire to do what they feel passionate about doing when they reach their 40’s, and even their 50’s and 60’s.  I am not referring to speeding around in a hot little red sports-car, throwing caution to the wind, looking for a man who looks very much like the one on the cover of the little paper-back book, the one that carries the princess off into the sunset, happily ever after.

What I am talking about is the ultimate desire to do whatever a women can do in her lifetime.

What passions I am referring to in this article are those that say to us “I can do this” (not so much material items):  I can now write that series of books, I can now sail the ocean for 90 days, I can now become a doctor, I can now start that farm, I can now start and grow a business.

Is it a mid-life crisis? I am not so sure I can term it as that.  I do think it is an awakening, but is it related to age? Or is it related to women that are now aware of their own question, “Who am I, and how do I become the person that I have always wanted to be?”

The latter.  And don’t let anyone tell you that you cannot do it.

P.S. See the little black 1953 Chevy Bel-Air in the photo (via http://cars.oodle.com)? I want one.  No, I do not plan to get one.  Do I consider it a mid-life crisis? No, I think the car is beautiful.
