Finding happiness after 60 isn’t always easy. After all, by the time we reach our 60th birthday, most of us have experienced more than our share of hardship and disappointment. Ironically, the things that happen to us are relatively easy to deal with.
There are only a few times in our lives when all of our troubles fade into the background and we experience true happiness. Some of these moments are “big” – seeing our grandchild for the first time, accomplishing something significant, or getting married.
Life after 60 can be one of the most challenging and uncertain times in a woman’s life. It can also be one of the most fulfilling and rewarding. With our roles and responsibilities changing, life is once again a fresh canvas. If you are just now turning 60, you may be wondering what’s to do next.
Do you want to take it easy for a while? Or, after years in a corporate career, perhaps you want to start a business of your own? Whether you want to travel, work, relax or volunteer, there is no reason that life after 60 shouldn’t be amazing.
What was the happiest time of your life? If you’re like many women over 60, the answer is “right now.” After 60 years of looking after other people, many of us are exploring our independence and building new lives, full of possibility and adventure.
