How many of you want to give the mid-life crisis the boot? If you want to join me in fighting society’s images of aging, then pick up A Guide for Aging Heroes: 30 Days to Owning the Second Half of Life by Randolph Harrison, M.Ed., with Erica Schwarting. The authors offer those of us who have left youth behind a comprehensive guide to living our best life despite the successes and failures that have defined us to date. This guide is written in a daily devotional style that addresses every area of life, from health and wellness to relationships, as well as establishing personal meaning and creativity.
Few of us visualize what I call the “sagging middle” of life. We graduate from school, pursue our goals, and then work toward retirement. What about your 40’s and 50’s? I’m convinced that the depression that leads to crises in these middle years stems from a lack of vision and purpose in this season in life, combined with the failures that have sidetracked us from our youthful goals. We don’t take failure into account when developing long-range vision, but Randolph Harrison and Erica Schwarting give sound advice based on cognitive-behavioral therapy, science, research, and personal experience to guide readers through the confusion and into a new vision for the future. A Guide for Aging Heroes is a great devotional guide that’s short, easy to read, easy to follow, and easy to relate to. I think this should be a required to gift for everybody on their 40th birthday – and required reading to conquer life when it matters the most.
