We are Betterafter50 because we choose to be. We’re old enough — and wise enough — to approach the challenges and promises of mid-life with positive energy. We are not in la la land here. We get it. From body issues to memory challenges, financial shifts to changing relationships, marriage re-kindlings and dissolvings, from empty beds to empty nests, to dealing with loss and the joy of new beginnings — we know the landscape is vast and the topics ripe for engagement. We also know how much easier it is when we share our thoughts and feelings with other like-minded souls.
And so, here we are with all our glitches and glory.
We invite you to scroll through our site, read what others have to say and to contribute.
