Falling upward: A spirituality for the two halves of life by Fr Richard Rohr

Franciscan priest Rohr explores the two halves of life: In the first we are naturally and rightly preoccupied with establishing our identity—climbing, achieving, and performing. But those concerns will not serve us as we grow older and begin to embark on a further journey. Heartbreaks, disappointments and first loves of life are actually stepping stones to the spiritual joys that the second half of life has in store for us. We grow spiritually more by doing it wrong than by doing it right.
