Eleanor Roosevelt on Middle Age…

“Probably the happiest period in life most frequently is in middle age,
When the eager passions of youth are cooled, and the infirmities of age not yet begun;
As we see that the shadows, which are at morning and evening so large, almost entirely disappear at midday.”

Eleanor Roosevelt

In other words, if you are middle aged, you rock, should be carpeing your diems, and are basically in the best years of your life. Here’s to it, Eleanor! Thanks for putting so eloquently.

Pushing 50 and it's time to try a few (maybe... 365?) new things. This blog is not about reinventing oneself or one's life, but about how much fun one can have while going out on a limb and branching out. Kicking anxiety's butt one day at a time, yeah!
