We at Ageist have been on the forefront of this for the last year. The people of my generation are living in a way that is entirely different from 20 years ago. To give an advance quote from next week's newsletter, “They were dinosaurs, we are not." Marie Claire, we are with you.

"I have aspirations, things I want to do and now I have the confidence to chase them. I feel good in myself, in my skin. I’m at peace with my demons, I forgive myself my many faults. When someone wants to put me down, I feel sorry for them. At the moment, I have the strength to fight for my power. To retain as much control as any of us ever have over our lives, our destiny. My age does not now, nor will it ever, define who I am." - Anna Mansel via Marie Claire UK
