It happened suddenly. Suddenly, you appear to be 50, and something within starts knocking on the doors of your consciousness. You can admit that that guest has been knocking on your doors for quite a long time already. However, now is the time you can no longer escape it.
It is a midlife crisis. Hello!
It appears to visit so many people after their 50s that the midlife crisis has become an omnipresent character of movies, songs, and writing pieces. Although you might be fearing it, this article is meant to show you the spiritual part of that beautiful period.
Read on to find that message!
Congratulations, You Are 50+.
The first thing to remember is diving deep down and feeling how lucky you are to be fifty or above. This may sound sad, but many people weren’t fortunate enough to make it to that half-century date. You were, and you should celebrate it. You should celebrate the aging of your soul, as it obtains the experience and memories it has come for to this world.
You may believe in God, in Allah, in Yahweh, or in the holy spirit that has created this world, but one thing is sure; you came to this world for a reason. Don’t let this fool you as a spiritual mission should never be considered to be something global. Some people came to be farmers, some came to be business people, and some came to make great discoveries. And all of them are needed here as everyone is the element of the spirituality of this world.
You being 50+ is also part of the big plan, the plan of your soul.
The Soul Roadmap
Being 50+ means that your soul has already traveled through many situations, places, and circumstances. At this age, you might be questioning why you came to this world as you go through your midlife crisis. Feel free to think that it is the ultimate test for you and your soul. This is the right time to look back and sum up what you have done so far.
The midlife crisis serves as a lab also for deciding whether the roadmap that you have chosen proved to be the right one for you or not. And there is one trap you should know of: the roads that you have taken and the experiences you have had were the rightest for you. You never know where you would be without those episodes in your life.
If you ask yourself this question, you are self-aware and ready to observe the assets and wealth you obtained through living. You might look back and say that you have had mainly good experiences or bad experiences. The point is to remember that they are already part of your past. They shouldn’t constitute what you and your soul are now.
Your midlife crisis should serve as an awakening, a spiritual endeavor that should help you derive life lessons, put your past behind you and stop clinging to it to correct the “mistakes” you made. You didn’t make mistakes; you learned lessons that your soul needed to know while being here.
What to Do?
On the other hand, the midlife crisis is about reevaluating your connections and networks and creating new ones. Assisted living facilities offer a fantastic chance to do that as the more people you know, the more physical and mental conversations your soul has.
Don’t make the midlife crisis your enemy and be afraid of it. Welcome it as a friend and give yourself a chance to change the flow of your life. The key is to learn from your past, be in the present, and aim only at your bright future.
