What’s the One Thing You Want Every Young Woman to Know?
There is a timeless quality that women of all ages share – a feminine thread that connects young and old. As women in our 60s, we have had many roles. We were girlfriends and students. Many of us are mothers and grandmothers. All of us were workers and contributors to society.
As a result, we have a unique perspective (I won’t call it “advice”) that we can offer to younger women.
At the same time, studies have shown that spending time with young people is one of the best ways to stay happy after 60. There is something about interacting with people from across generations that offers us a new perspective and reminds us to keep growing and learning.
So, reaching out to younger women can be a “win/win.” We can help them to deal with the challenges that they are facing and they can give us purpose and renew our energy. Please watch the video and join the conversation.
In my experience, most young women are struggling with the same questions that we faced at their age. They worry about relationships, body image, perceptions of beauty, the aging process, self-confidence and decision making. We can’t remove the social and internal conflicts that the face, but, we may be able to offer some perspective.
Along the way, we may just be able to change their perspective on aging. If they see us as vital, energetic older women, with a passion for life, they may learn to fear the aging process less.
So, I’d like to ask for your help!
Let’s each offer one piece of advice for younger women, based on our own successes, failures, mistakes, and missed opportunities. Then, let’s share our advice with one other person.
The more of us we can get to participate, the bigger an impact that we can make!
