Lately, I've been feeling bored with the routine I'm in with the tendency to daydream and having bouts of nostalgia. Hence, some of the recent posts! I wonder if it's mid life crisis.
Wikipedia defines it as "a period of dramatic self-doubt that is typically felt in the 'middle years' of life, as people sense the passing of youth and the imminence of old age." Ahh, I think I should be approaching or maybe I have approached my 'middle years'.
Wiki also said "for the approximately 10% of middle aged adults who go through an age-related midlife crisis, the condition is most common ranging from the ages of 35-50 (a large study in the 1990s found that the average age at onset of a self-described 'mid-life crisis' was 46). Mid life crises last about 3-10 years in men and 2-5 years in women."
Average age of self-described mid life crisis was 46 it said, but I'm not 46 yet... It lasts two to five years in women it also said. I sure am hoping I'm not having mid life crisis and it won't last that long if I do!
Ha ha, in my younger days, mid life crisis was something like an 'enigma' to me. It seemed like something only people in books or movies experience.
