Perhaps the hardest thing of all is finding the courage to live how we really want to live.

Advancing age is quite liberating. Though I may yearn for the physical attributes I held when I was young, I never want to go back to that insecure, fearful girl I once was.
I think the term 'grey-power' says it all.
