Duration: 2 hours 7 minutes
Patrick Morley helps men and women move successfully through midlife transition -- Today, midlife is not so much an 'age' as an 'experience.' It is the time we each come to, that moment of self-assessment, when we wonder if we have taken the right path. Sometime in our 30s, 40s, or 50s, the dreams that haven't materialized for us, the goals we haven't achieved, loom before us --- and we recognize they may never happen. We stand at a crossroads and ask, 'Who have I become? How did I get here? Is this who I really am and want to be? How can I reinvent myself so the rest of my journey matters?' In Second Wind for the Second Half, Patrick Morley offers insight for men and women alike. Here is wisdom for all who have reached a turning point midway through life and wonder where to go to find a new and better journey.
Raising issues common to all of us during the middle years, Second Wind for the Second Half offers practical ideas to make peace with the changes that occur, and shows readers how to pass through to a deeper, lasting sense of significance and joy. When life loses its zip and what was meaningful suddenly seems meaningless, it can become a golden opportunity to examine our assumptions about our own lives. Second Wind for the Second Half shows how this process of reevaluation and reinvention of ourselves can spur us on to find new and promising pathways for a more fulfilling, joyous life.
