Top 10 Signs you are middle-aged and restless..

10 You start to wonder what you have achieved in your life

9 You dust off old and forgotten dreams and half-finished projects (that carnatic music lesson you started and had to quit because a. you moved b. your teacher was a creep)

8 You have a renewed sense of panic and an urge to accomplish something – anything!!

7 You nourish delusions of writing the next great American novel

6  You believe you could have been the next Monet/ Lata Mangeshkar/ Jesudas(?!!) under the right circumstances

5 You lose the fear of speaking your mind to the extent that people may think you’re rude

4 You dream of drastic career moves (volunteering at an ashram in Pondicherry for example, or being a traveling reporter for CNN (?!)) without considering practicalities such as qualification, and a husband and kids who still depend on you somewhat

3 One day you are all fired up about getting that promotion, moving up the corporate ladder, and the next you want to retire, travel, see the world and in general, live the life of the bum

2 You aggravate your children by constantly asking they what they’d like for lunch/dinner right after they’re eaten (although this may be just an Indian mother syndrome)

1 You start a blog called Middleaged and Restless and wonder why the hell you started it
