The key to life is earning the right to always be told that, “You have potential.”

In my 30s, I had the good fortune to work with AARP and to have the opportunity to think about life after 50 when I hadn’t nearly gotten there yet. It changed my perspective on aging.

Maybe it’s because I’ve been long fascinated with the end of life. And by acknowledging it, I’ve tried to discount its existence as much as possible.
