That Time I Didn’t Have a Midlife Crisis

- DARA GOLDBERG Fifteen years ago, everyone around me thought I was having a midlife crisis.

So, I’ve Been Thinking…

by: MEL GREENBERG So, I’ve been thinking… about the “V” word. A lot! Vulnerability. My vulnerability in particular.

It was, however, the first time I’d ventured out of my secluded corner of the world since an [ Read More ]

Searching for Happiness in Spite of War

by NICOLE LACHANCE Is it alright for me to want to be happy right now? Am I still allowed to celebrate the little things?

As a result, they tend to focus [ Read More ]

Change It Up

How often have we heard from within the Pro-Age community, how annoying it is to see ads for anti-aging products when it’s obvious the models are in their teens or early twenties?

Aging – my Journey to Freedom, Love and Joy

by LORI KLEIMAN For as long as I can remember, I have been drawn to older women.

Now… at 60, I understand that what I [ Read More ]

An Exciting Groundswell Within the Beauty Industry
