Is this a Mid Life Crisis?


I think I may be on the verge of a mid life crisis. I turn 40 tomorrow and as the door slowly closes on my 30’s I’ve been looking back at what I have achieved in my life so far.

Now I admit to some my achievements might not be overly exciting. However, as I contemplate my life so far I feel a total a sense of pride. There is also as a sense that I could have done more.

You see in my 39+ years I have managed to:

  • give birth to 3 children (and keep them alive for 19, 5 and 2 years respectively)
  • own 3 cars and 3 houses
  • travel to Los Angeles, Las Vegas and New York
  • said goodbye to 3 family pets

As you can see the number 3 seems to keep cropping up. I’m beginning to feel a little reluctant to give it up a part of my age.

That said, the sense that I could have achieved more keeps rearing it’s head and has made me think about the 3 times I have attempted my 101 goals in 1001 day challenge. On each occasion for one reason or another I failed miserably. Now, as I turn 40 and begin a new chapter of my life, I feel that I should really be pushing myself to move out of the comfortable bubble that I’ve been in for the last few years and make the most of life.

So I am currently reviewing my 101 goals list. I am planning on embarking on a new challenge starting tomorrow and taking me through until Wednesday 30 October 2019.

I’ll be back with more details on the challenge and my full list once I’ve finalised it.

Thanks for reading, until later.
