What we’ve discovered via that point, from either our mess ups in addition to our successes, has a tendency to have humbled us into purity.

Midlife isn't really a trouble; it’s a time of rebirth. It’s no longer a time to simply accept your dying; it’s a time to simply accept your life—and to ultimately, really stay it, as you and also you on my own understand deep on your middle it was once intended to be lived.
