Lifelong Learning is the New Health Club
We are all getting older. Aging, however, is more than simply adding another candle to next year’s cake. As our lives start to come full circle, we have a wonderful opportunity to self-reflect…”Did my life have meaning?  Did I make a difference?” And regardless of when we begin this inward-facing journey, we also have time to learn.  Lifelong Learning is the new Health Club. Make time to rekindle past passions, nurture existing ones, and create NEW passions too. Engage in what makes you feel truly alive.  What is the next chapter in the book of your life?
