"...getting older is about liberation"

As HipSilver’s COO, I often think about what HipSilver means to me as a ‘young’ Silver just entering my 3rd chapter, and how our vibrant and vital Founder Gail Bruce inspires our team to embrace life fully, with passion, every single day.  

Earlier this month, Arianna Huffington reflected on her own Silver age journey on the occasion of her 70th birthday.  Her multiple epiphanies particularly resonate with me not only because this is how I feel but also because this is what our HipSilver Community is all about.   I hope you share my pleasure in reading her words:
