How Old Do You Really Feel on the Inside?

Does it ever feel like you are aging much more slowly on the inside than on the outside? If so, you’re not alone.

Oh, sure, we have gained wisdom and experience over the years… but, inside, we still feel the same as we always have. Not everyone feels this way, but, enough of us do that I wanted to start a discussion. Come join us for a cup of tea (or coffee) and a chat.

Retirement ain’t what it used to be! This is one of the things that I have learned as I have talked with all of the wonderful women in our community. Unlike our own grandmothers, we see life after 60 as a time for exploring, growing, learning and giving back. We are raising our voices rather than keeping quiet.
