Okay, I have to admit that I used the title to get you interested in reading my blog, but I’m fairly certain that my lovely wife and I did break at least 4 laws during our anniversary weekend. I can’t tell you what they are because, well as I said, we broke them! I may at least give you a hint if you keep reading, but my point is that I don’t want people to think love and passion fizzles in the forties. Think about what younger people see on TV. Every Viagra commercial has a good-looking middle-aged man on them. I wonder if the younger audience is watching and thinking, “Shit man, my willy is about to die any day now!” Sure, the willy can wonder & slumber for some, but here is the good news youngins…it isn’t as common as you are lead to believe. The plumbing rarely starts rusting in the forties!
When I was in my twenties and early thirties I thought that romance and marriage in my forties (almost 50s) would be boring and lame. And what I want you to know is that is entirely up to you. You can choose whether or not midlife is a time to light the fire or you can begin a downward spiral of sexual and physical boredom.
I want to challenge all of us to begin seeking out ways to enjoy our lives every single day. And I want to convey that the midlife years can be the best time to begin doing so. Our twenties and thirties are the years many of us were so busy focused on “climbing the ladder” that we missed the many blessings that surrounded us. We didn’t fully embrace and enjoy life.
When the forties arrive you begin to realize life is going too fast, and you feel challenged to enjoy being physically active. You simply realize the days of running, jumping, and well…humping may be gone before you know it! And so you have a choice to make as to how you will accept that reality. Some of you may be hitting your forties and saying, “I’m too old to ___________.” Well I want to challenge you to start saying, “I’m too old not to _______________.” You still want to know what laws Amy and I broke? All I will say is that 3 out of the 4 involved indecent exposure. Go have some fun!
