Just trust me and watch this video from a TED Talks presentation.
The star is author Isabel Allende. She's 71 and talks very openly about how inside she's still 17 years old, regardless of the age of her body. She talks about living life with passion and couldn't be more honest about her love for life.
I know this isn't directly related to the things that make the Friendship Centers an amazing community resource, and yet in a way it is. The Friendship Centers are here to help us all focus on the dignity of aging. Volunteers and staff help the community every day to live a stronger, better, healthier and diverse life. With that help comes the strength for so many people to keep their passion for life alive.
Isabel Allende talks about her fears of aging and shares how she intends to keep her passion alive. It's well worth eight minutes of your time. I promise you won't be disappointed.
