Hello friends! My name is Alan and I am one of the founders of Midlife Boon. I'm a 48 year old Dad, blogger, foodie and seeker of adventure. Writing and travel have always been two things I love to do and I feel extremely fortunate that I'm at a place in my life that I can pursue both.
A boon is something that is an asset, a blessing, of benefit, advantageous or favorable. We feel that midlife is very much a boon. To us it is that period in life where freedom, wisdom and experience all intersect. This convergence creates for us the perfect opportunity to adventure, explore and expand upon our lives. We begin to value the material world less and place greater value on time, the people who matter most to us and personal experiences. Some may feel midlife is the beginning of the end. We choose to view it as the moment life really begins. Midlife Boon was created to share our journey through midlife; as we set out to redefine ourselves and rediscover the art of living.
