My name is Crystal Arzu. I live in Corona (Southern) California. I’m 45 years old, wife of 20 years, and Mom to an 18-year-old daughter. I work full-time in the Healthcare Management industry. My blog is called The Middle Years Journey. Blogging is something that I had always wanted to do, so I decided to start one! I chose the niche of “Midlife” as there are many changes we face in our second half of life. Empty nests, death, divorce, menopause, changes in friendships are just some of the issues midlife women endure. I hope to reach other women and let them know that they aren’t alone in their midlife journeys. I believe midlife is OUR time of reinvention, self-reflection, and growth. My blog is a continual work in progress, but I am enjoying it. I’m learning about myself in the process, and for that I’m thankful.4 Articles

I was married to the love of my life, just shy of 13 years. He was my “boyfriend” in 5th grade. I wrote “Joni Roberts” in my notebooks and cheered for him when he played basketball at recess. We went to the prom as friends in 1997, our senior year in high school. We started dating seriously in the summer of 1998. He asked me to be his wife in February of 1999 and we said “I do” on October 2. We had a son in October of 2000, and a daughter 22 months later in August of 2002. We went through more than most could go through in a lifetime but never gave up on each other. In June of 2012, we were in a horrible car accident that claimed his life. In an instant, I was a grieving 33 year-old single mother of two grieving children who are now teenagers (16&18.) I now walk through life without the one that was to be with me forever. Today, I am doing everything I can to be strong, to raise our two children, to take this grief and use it to fuel the purpose for the rest of my days here on earth. ONE DAY AT A TIME. I love and miss my best friend every day and that won’t change until we are together again. I am choosing to try and live my life in a way that would honor him and make him proud.3 Articles
