Life’s Third Act: Redefining The Aging Process

Life’s Third Act: Redefining The Aging Process

In December, 2011 Jane Fonda delivered a very popular TED Talk about life’s third act. 

The third act is defined as being the last 3 decades of our life.

In her talk, Jane shared some of her thoughts and revelations about what she had discovered through her own personal journey and research on aging.

One idea that she shared was the belief that our third act was an opportunity to “finish up the task of finishing ourselves”.

She also shared the idea that during this time we should begin to shift our old paradigm of seeing age as an arch to more of a staircase. This aging climb that we take provides us with the opportunity to further develop our wisdom, wholeness and authenticity.

Here is her TED Talk. What do you think?
