Getting older is portrayed in the media as something to dread! We use Botox, color our hair, dress younger, go on special diets...anything we can do to put off the inevitable. But rather than fearing aging, it’s time to embrace it, says popular speaker Karen O’Connor. We can handle the aging process and its blessings and burdens with grace, gratitude and grit! By looking at seven areas of life–Faith, Family, Friends, Finances, Fitness, Food, and Fun–O’Connor shows you how getting older can mean getting better! Learn how to “raise your happiness quotient,” change your attitude and discover the delights of being 50-plus.

From the Back Cover:

So what if you’re getting older? It beats the alternative, doesn’t it? Karen O’Connor thinks so! With down-to-earth wisdom and a good dose of hilarity, she invites you to embrace the second half of life with grace, gratitude and grit. Sure, there are downsides to getting older – the gray hair, the creaky knees, the thickening waistlines and the blessings and burdens of the empty nest. But there are plenty of opportunities to make your upcoming years the best part of life! Karen explores seven areas of getting older: Faith, Family, Friends, Finances, Fitness, Food and Fun.  Her stories are nostalgic, side-splittingly funny and deeply vulnerable. You’ll be encouraged as you learn to make the most of the aging process and learn how to age in a way that is both balanced and beautiful!
