If you’re hating on your mid-life, then no wonder you could be in a crisis. On the other hand, you could be writing and publishing your first book, finding your calling that was so far removed from what you thought, and then finding out that your second book was being made into a movie.
Sound like a dream? Not for Salvatore Sapienza. This is his 40 Plus life and he’s relishing every bit of it because he’s allowing the surrendering to life to move him beyond the “Now what?”
