I blog at https://www.crestingthehill.com.au - There’s so much more to Midlife than having a crisis, or being in menopause, or crying over an empty nest. It’s time to focus on freedom, re-discovery, and becoming the best version of ourselves. So, join me in a journey where we replace Midlife crisis with Midlife connection and contentment..
A fellow blogger asked me what advice I'd give my younger self now that I look back on all that my life has encompassed so far. This is nearly 17 year old me on the last day of high school with many decades ahead of her. I was actually quite surprised by the advice that came to mind - it wasn't 'marry a millionaire' or 'get a fantastic career' - it was something completely different.

I've always thought of this as the second half of life, but have just been awakened to the fact that I'm now in the third 3rd of life. The first two thirds were the unraveling, this last third is going to be where everything comes together. Maybe this will be the getting of wisdom or even the crest of the hill? https://www.crestingthehill.com.au/2024/01/im-now-in-3rd-third-of-life.html #crestingthehill
Today's blog post is a little less upbeat than usual. This time last year I was feeling disappointed and at a loss, 12 months later I've come full circle back to the same point. Today I'm talking about how to cope when expectations aren't met and hope gets thwarted. I hope you'll pop over for a read. https://www.crestingthehill.com.au/2024/01/expectations-not-met-or-hopes-thwarted.html #crestingthehill
