The challenge of this life stage is getting to know ourselves in a new context. It's a process somewhat similar to adolescence but with a greater perspective and wisdom. We have the opportunity to rediscover our values and priorities, our bodies and our relationships, and, in the process, to uncover new aspects of ourselves and discover "that we're not who we were when we were younger."
This stage of life is a time for all of us to open up to new possibilities and reinvent ourselves. But, to do so, we need to confront some of our own internalized ageism and a society that values youth.
In this month's episode, Suzanne Braun Levine discusses reinventing our lives. We'll discuss some of the challenges and rewards women and men face during this exciting and often challenging journey and some of the "life lessons" and "milestones" along the way.
