“We spend our first 30 years trying to be like other women and our second thirty years finding ourselves”
On a business trip to Mexico City this past year, a female executive I was meeting with made this comment about South American women. I found it to apply beyond the border! I remember a friend of mine turning 30 just a few months before me. She was a bit traumatized by it, lamenting “my life is half over”. First I had to point out that our life expectancy is extending well beyond 60 but to me it seemed that we had so much of our lives ahead of us to look forward to.
