    Reached a stagye in my life where I am very comfortable with who I am.
    There used to be a time when I wanted to look beautiful for others/hubby and tried wearing all brands,sexy stuff etc but now I am very simple.I feel that is the real me.stopped buying expensive stuff and splurging only on the basic necessities.be it clothes,home goods etc ..everything is for me and the family and not to impress others.No more in the rat race for anything.

    I feel so content but at the same time i feel "THAT'S IT? THIS IS ALL IS LIFE ALL ABOUT?"

    life is calm and good but i do not have aims or ambitions anymore.
    Am i in the mid-life crisis?

    Dear Aruna,

    You are not having any crisis my dear. You have just come of age and reached a level of maturity to do things that make YOU happy. We all go through a phase of positive discontentment where we try to over indulge for social acceptance. We then reach a plateau where we realize that our histrionics only have nuisance value.

    Life is calm. Still waters run deep. However, there would be incidents or triggers that would give you a new goal to pursue. We will all find motivation that compels us to contribute and lead. This could be in the form of a book, a movie, a real life story or a newspaper article.

    And there is nothing wrong with a crisis. If necessity is the mother of invention, more often than not, a Crisis is the father.

    You are as young or as old as you feel Aruna.
    Think of the things in life you always wanted to do but couldn't because you were too busy doing stuff you were supposed to do......now is the time to tick off some of those .

    I don't know whether this is mid life crisis but definitely you've reached a stage where you have been there and done it all and now its time to enjoy only what you think important and be your true self...
    I've been feeling like this since I turned 40..
    enjoy yourself
