There's a Difference Between a Life Crisis and a Mid-Life Crisis

"The situation you live in doesn’t have to live in you."
- Roberta Flack

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I buy a cool sports car I never had and someone calls it a mid-life crisis.

Or, you finally start working out and lose the weight you should have lost years ago because your husband or wife threatened to leave you.

Or, you got this feeling that you have to find a new job or career because you've been doing the same thing for 20 years.

Or, you're smoking joints all day because you're nervous about which college you may get in.

It's bullshit. Major bullshit. Man, I have been in a full-blown life crisis for years. It started ever since I can remember at age 12 when i thought after getting a letter that i made the SP, which was a special program where you skipped a grade, but then my school called and said they had made a mistake. This was after I told all my friends...WHAT A CRISIS!


How about when there's a girl or guy you had a mad crush on and for a short period of time they like you, too, but then dumped your ass! What a crisis!

How about when you work full-time and college, but can't find a job after graduating?

Then, there's the crisis of deciding to get married and everything that goes with that. A ring, where to get married, who's going, who gave gifts and who didn't...

Then, the house...that was a crisis! How much to spend. What can you afford?

Then, starting Steiner Sports with just $4,000...I remember I used to call as many people as I knew just hoping they would call me back so the office would at least sound busy. What a crisis that was! Would my business make it? many? Where will they go to college? Will they work over the summer?

You get the pictures--there is always some time of "crisis" going on in everyone's life, but often we blow things out of proportion...and I'm only sharing 1/100th of all the shit that got me into "crisis" mode.

After further review, I am changing things up ASAP and I am going to have fun doing it. I don't need a new job or new car or anything else to get things right. I have decided that all this crisis stuff shall pass if i want it to and that I shouldn't make such a big deal out of everything.

I am going to focus on all the good stuff happening in my life, which is so much more important and happens so much more often than the bad stuff. I'm going to let all that "crisis" stuff work itself out and just go to sleep earlier and workout more. I am going to see what else I can do to make the place I work better. 

If I were you, I'd do this: go ask your boss for more stuff to do and ask for more responsibility. Think about how you can help your boss be a better boss. Take on the responsibility of making work fun. And, go home and ask your wife or husband how you can be a better spouse.


If you want to fulfill yourself, forget yourself.

    Contact Doctor Odunga at OR Whats App/CALL +2348167159012

    I got my ex husband back to me and also got fertile and gave birth to twin girls after 12 years of marriage.
    When I came online last year, I saw a testimony about Doctor Odunga and how he has been helping people with marriage issues and I decided to contact him. We spoke on email at and later he gave me his Whats-App number which is +2348167159012. He assured me he would help me get my ex husband back after 3 years of no contact. Doctor Odunga is the best spell caster I must say. My husband called me after 24 hours of contact. The third day, I received natural herbs for fertility and after using it, I became fertile and conceived. My husband and I reconnected, had sex and I was pregnant. Presently I am happy to say I am the mother of twin girls and this is ALL THANKS TO DOCTOR ODUNGA. I came online to say this: If you need help, I believe you are saved with this man.

    Contact his email at
