Steven Lane Taylor, author of Row, Row, Row Your Boat: A Guide for Living Life in the Divine Flow
Marianne Williamson asks us: "How would we live were we not afraid of death? How would we live if we felt full permission from ourselves and others to give to life everything we've got?"
With those thoughts in mind, Williamson guides the reader to go after the life they want; to be proactive. Only when "we go for it" do we flourish.
Midlife is what you create. We are not too old to change, if anything, with age comes knowledge, Williamson counsels.
Williamson believes midlife is another stage of life and should be celebrated as such--not unlike the transition from childhood into teenager. She claims the bar or bat mitzvahs, the Jewish traditional rite of passage, is an ideal way to acknowledge the transition from childhood to adolescence, allowing the child to comes to terms with the change in life.
Likewise, we need to celebrate our transition into midlife. Williamson claims that if we don't, we risk a midlife crisis, most often manifested as depression in women.
She says, "Now is the time to burst forth into your greatness--a greatness you could never have achieved without going through exactly the things you've gone through."
It's our perception of middle age that counts --not the old stereotypes.
Midlife is like second chance. We learn who we are and know what we want. Midlife is the time to allow whatever it is into our lives.

It's already been many months since I've read it, and I remember the new paradigm posited by sweet Marianne...and I'm paraphrasing here: at midlife you no longer go "over the hill" - instead it is more of a mid-life riser, and when you get "over the hill" you find that the landscape "over the hill/peak" is simply a new higher plateau - and you get to choose to rise above that!
A wonderful and lovely testament to mid-life. I agree that it is the Age of miracles...
Whole-heartedly recommended to all.

It wasn't what I expected! I wanted more advice, not what I can get at church. It was more about finding yourself.Published on Feb. 1 2014 by Dalene Cosgrave
