I just turned 50 in December. I am a generation xer I can’t really describe the weird mental shift that has occurred with me. It’s not something drastic. It’s not something like men’s midlife crisis, which I really don’t know too much about but it’s talked about as if it is the reason why men get sports cars, start going to the gym, divorce and date young women. All those horrible things that break up family and make no sense and seem just totally nonsensical. And maybe women at 50 are nonsensical. Now I’m starting to wonder.
