“Your second half of life is not the same as your mother’s or your grandmother’s,” Karen ely writes. “It is something completely different. It is less about sticking with what you've always done and more about doing what brings you joy. It is less about safety and more about taking on a new passion…or revisiting one you lost along the way. It’s about a time of seeing, probably for the first time, how precious time is and how quickly it’s moving. It is about understanding you’re not too old to start a new life.
