Is 60 really the new 40?
When you say this, you are privileging 40 over 60 and denying that there are any benefits to getting older. What if getting older was about attaining new heights of spiritual maturity, wisdom and joy? This potential to live an enriched life is one of the many gifts of age. It is not a pale imitation of the “real thing” we wish we were: forty or any other younger age.
