There are so many ways to use the term OVER, especially once you get to midlife.
You are close to being called/considered “OVER the hill.” Folks may have a different attitude towards you. You’re not the spring chicken you once were. All of your feathers may be falling out or even growing in places they don’t belong or shouldn’t be.
Typically if you go through many changes and a lot of growth you feel that the relationship/marriage you’re in is OVER. Circumstances change, people change and you don’t always make it through all the changes and stay together, and you don’t have to.
You are so OVER “it.” Fill in the blank here for YOUR “it.” You no longer have to compete with others or seek tons of approval. Maybe by now you’re able to get it from yourself and could care less if anyone else agrees or approves of you, your ideas, what you say or do. You may be your own best friend and cheerleader. You can sing and dance with reckless abandon. You accept yourself and others (mostly…or at least you’re trying to).
You may feel OVERwhelmed with all the changes, shifts, moods, madness. Things, ….life, seem to be going in several different directions and really don’t line up & coordinate or cooperate most of the time. What’s happening? What’s going on? “Stop this ride I want to get off!”
Things seems overrated. You’re done with all the drama and nonsense that others insist on. You don’t need to keep up with the Jones.’ Who the hell are they anyway? I never did get a good look at them. Do YOU know who they are?
Maybe you need to get OVER this midlife hurdle to the other side. I’m not exactly sure what is on the other side. I’ll let you know when I get there. Hopefully the trip through Menopause Land will be worth it. That’s what I’m aiming for anyway. I’m searching for that place…..somewhere OVER the rainbow. 🙂
Okay, this is me signing off for now, OVER & out!
