Has your life turned on a dime? Share the gifts and challenges you have experienced.

Share your story on how life can turn on a dime — but in both directions.  This year has had its challenges but also some great things we have learned or done.  


I started the year off getting married not knowing that the first 12 months of my marriage we would spend all of our time together!  What a gift and a challenge!


What's your gift and challenge?


Great story from the Girlfriend editor on her changes!

How could we "do great things" if we can barely leave the house?  Things turned on a dime all right!  Good riddance 2020!

The most significant part of 2020 represented for me was 60 years since my parents and I moved where I lived now when I was 14,  Math = I'm now 74.  Spoiler:  I turn 75 in 14 days.  Fourteen again.  Poetic coincidence or what?!

To our Online Community Members,

We wanted to let you know that our Community Guidelines and Terms of Service have been updated. The changes are intended to foster more civil discussions in AARP’s online communities. The issues discussed in these communities – including healthcare, retirement and politics – are serious and stir up strong emotions. We should have spirited debates about all of them, but those debates should always be respectful, on topic and fact based. We will be applying these standards in our online communities as we work together, with all of you, to address the challenges that face older Americans. Thank you.
