Attitude is Everything: It's a Great Time to be Old
The attitude you take can make a world of difference when it comes to getting older. Writer Virginia Bell talks about her personal struggle with turning 70 and compared it initially to being stuck in Siberia. She then has a realization that there are more opportunities now than ever for seniors in the working sphere. Big businesses have traditionally ignored the elderly. But with the recent trend of people living longer lives and with 34 million people who are 65 or older, the business world is working in older employees. Bell also speaks about older generations’ gift of showing younger people how to be positive examples of aging well. Even though she is aging it does not mean that she will stop living and learning.
