You decide what you are doing and why, whether you are in your 20s, 40s, 60s or 80s. Truth is if you let yourself just be and trust and honor who you are you can get through your life crisis free.

Put a glass of something in your right hand. Go sit yourself down next to your brother or sister and look them straight in the eye. They can see emotion coming a mile away. Therefore, they will get nervous, tell some really lame joke to deflect and head straight for the kitchen.

This year, you're just going to spell everything right on your family holiday card, which subtly conveys that nonchalant "perfect family" vibe that will keep you in the right social circles all year long. And here's how to do that.

Take me, for instance. Just because I have been with Allstate since the Beatles broke up, or at least Wings, have drunk the same coffee since my first hangover and haven't had a new hairstyle since my senior prom... Well, I wouldn't say I'm stuck in my ways.

The 50s: Flourishing or Floundering?

What strikes me most about this time of life is how easy it is to turn your back on life-giving energy. Without even knowing it we can divest ourselves of a vital future where we can continue to grow and create.

A year ago, I was living in San Francisco and working as a corporate consultant. Then one night, as I was packing my suitcase for a business trip to Switzerland, I got a phone call that had me quit my job and get on a plane home to Australia instead.

No Headlines for Botox Barbie

It seems Barbie's mid-life crisis started around five years ago when this former beauty queen was traumatized after receiving her AARP card in the mail. Recent tattoos, endless diets, strict workout regimens, and bizarre anti-aging rituals- yep, her mid-life crisis was in full swing. Who can blame her?

I want nothing at all from the idea that a motorcycle is a mid-life crisis, some desperate attempt to regain a youth that slipped by, uninformed, unaware. No, what I want is called, accurately perhaps, an adventure bike.

Why I'm Suddenly Longing To Get Inked In Midlife

Why am I even thinking about a tattoo for the first time, at the age of 53, with grown children and aging parents and memberships to three synagogues on Manhattan's Upper West Side? Why do I keep on asking myself what sign, what image, which words, what message I would want marked on my body? Is this a sign of mid-life crisis? Is it a diversion from more important matters?

There are modern-day 'metzoraim,' outliers who stand at the edge -- and not always as a result of their own willful choices. I have felt like a leper, someone living outside the comfort of the camp.

What Rudely Awakened Me To The Reality Of My Age

Joan Lebow | Posted 02.16.2014 | Fifty

There's always something that rudely awakens us to the reality of age. The blank stare of the thirty-something at the office when I mentioned 'fiddling while Rome burns.' The moment I hesitated to use the words 'pay phone' to describe a telecom job on my resume. Or simply that slightly panicky feeling I've felt when I've left home without even a tiny tube of concealer in my makeup bag.

The Key To Avoiding A Midlife Meltdown

Some theorists suggest that this blurred boundary of work and life is a result of technology alone, but I have always felt it's caused by a number of inter-connected factors. Newspapers, social media and even our schooling help promote the need to be as good as or better than the next person. Whatever the cause, work has entered our whole lives.
