Do you feel you are at your best age? Are you afraid of telling how old you are? Are you scared of the physical changes that come with the aging process? Do you think it is too late to achieve your dreams?
With these challenging questions, Lorraine C. Ladish, autor and founder of Vivafifty.com starts her new book “Tu Mejor Edad – Para tener una vida extraordinaria” (Your Best Age -How to Have an Extraordinary Life). Lorraine, Founder and Editor-in-Chief, Viva Fifty, is a bilingual author of 18 books, writer, editor, speaker and social media maven.
“Women in their thirties want to know what they need to do in order to stay healthy, be in good shape and feel vibrant when they reach their fifties,” Lorraine affirms in the book’s prologue. “When I turned 50 a few years ago, I got a lot of congratulations from my community but also, some comments that didn’t sit so well such as ‘you look great for your age’ or ‘don’t you worry, fifties are the new forties’. I thought them over and found those comments didn’t reflect my reality,” she explains.
Lorraine believes whatever age we are in, that is the best age to live our lives. Her new book covers different aspects of life at thirty, forty, fifty and beyond. The purpose of the book, the author says, is to feel empowered, informed and full of life after you are done with it.

“Nobody teaches us how to evolve as we get older and how to enjoy the process of aging. Women should face each decade with enthusiasm instead of fear. I want every woman to know it is possible to feel young and vital regardless of the year you were born in, without thinking the best is behind us,” she affirms.

A bilingual community that celebrates being 50+, Viva Fifty! empowers middle age women to enjoy life and realize their dreams, showing that age is not a barrier to anything they want to accomplish.
“Viva Fifty is the realization of my dream to build a bilingual and multicultural community that celebrates life and the joy that midlife can entail. My hope is that we can inspire and empower one another to thrive in health and happiness. To that end I invite writers, bloggers and readers alike to share their stories and ideas on how to live life to the fullest, because fifty is not the new thirty. Fifty is the new fifty. And life at fifty is grand!,” says Ladish in the introduction to her site.
With weekly articles and posts on subjects and issues that matter to her target audience, Ladish continues to bring to her readership important news, ideas and personal stories that inspire and educate.
Most importantly, she says, “I promise we’ll do our best to make you feel at home and help you enrich your life, and to give YOU a voice.”
