Experiencing mid-life glee rather than a mid-life crisis

As I approach middle age, I find myself wondering if a mid-life crisis is going to hit me.

As I explore the issues that could give me a mid-life crisis, I keep coming back to a feeling of contentment.

I'm actually quite happy that I will only have to endure 20-50 more years maximum on this planet.

I see things like this famous quote all around me...

"Doctors destroy medicine. Lawyers destroy justice. Religion destroys spirituality."

The full quote is much longer but I feel it does not even matter if I have the full quote when it can all be summed up by:

"Nuclearism destroys everything."

The Fukushima Daiichi disaster combined with the Wigner effect and the other 400+ nuclear power plants on earth may just be the final nail in the coffin for humanity. But even besides that, the world is either not progressing or going backwards in most areas that I see.

For those who must have everything be optimistic all the time:

I'm experiencing mid-life glee rather than a mid-life crisis.

Every cloud has a silver lining.

I went to a forensic neuropsychologist, who determined that I was suffering a mid-life crisis at the age of 25.

I said, that makes sense, why the hell would anyone want to live past 50.


She was in her 40s with an 18month old baby; needless to say, I didn't go back to talk with her many times.

I suffered mine at the ripe old age of 42. Damn rough ride for me.
then I got rid of the nagging money spending inconsiderate B#&*@
and life took on a better tone. I intend on getting rid of the rest of
the woooo's of life so I can enjoy whats left.

It doesn't have to be a crisis at all. Put your priorities in order and you
will have it by the nads. Don't let the programming get you down,
stand up and be your own man for sure. Ah, you are a man ? yes?

You are indeed fortunate...

When I was a young man I set my goals to high and wound up a drunkard and wasted much of my life.
At 50 I went into a depression that damn near killed me.
Sobriety is it's own reward...thankfully!

Geez...this thread makes me want to throw one back - lol!

I'm focusing on living well, not necessarily longer. Sure, longer would be good...but only if it's better. I don't want to be 70 or 80 and be infirmed or broke or alone.

Every cloud has a caesium lining.

Ignorance is bliss.
