Oscar winning-actress and activist Jane Fonda says the “third act,” those extra 30 years past midlife, is not just a footnote. In this talk filmed at TEDx Women, she likens these years to a staircase.
Jokingly, she admits that while it may seem like getting older makes it harder to climb stairs, she points out that our human spirit continues to climb upward even while the body might be declining.
She also brings attention to research that shows we actually get happier as we age.
How can you contribute during these added years of life and make a difference in your third act?
