Natural. The middle stage of life has often been referred to as a “crisis.” Using lots of data in a book titled, The Happiness Curve, Jonathan Rauch describes this part of life as a natural and essential slump that leads to an incline toward greater happiness. One friend of mine many years ago called his midlife transition a period of “values clarification.” Rauch would agree. If you’re in a midlife slump, relax. It gets better. Read the book and understand how and why.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
