Going through midlife is like being in the dead middle of a realllllllly long hallway. You wonder, should I go back? I know the way, I could re-trace my steps! But that prospect is exhausting because you’ve already come so far and to go back feels so redundant. But going forward can be uncertain at best and downright terrifying at worst. So I guess really it’s about the decorating when it comes right down to it. You can go all Stephen king and shit and make it dark and full of creepy spider webs and ghosts and monsters. Or, you could go fun house with fun lights and mirrors and surprises that make you laugh and fill you with excitement and anticipation and pleasure.
So, here’s to the hallway! Happy decorating!
