Stronger Together: Support Throughout Our Lives

Last night’s Gray Tham’s “50 and Wiser” event celebrating the achievements of incredible women over 50 was a powerful reminder of something fundamental: we are social creatures. Humans aren’t meant to go it alone.


Think about it. From the moment we’re born, we rely on the love and support of others. As we navigate life’s triumphs and challenges, strong connections act as a safety net, a source of encouragement, and a wellspring of strength.


This need for connection doesn’t fade with age. The women at the “50 and Wiser” event perfectly exemplified this. Their shared experiences and their featured stories in the “50 and Wiser” book are all testaments to the power of community.


So, why is support so crucial? Here’s the thing: life throws us curveballs. I like to describe it as we are riding the wave of life with all its highs and lows. We face setbacks, grapple with self-doubt, and celebrate victories big and small. Having a network of like minded people who believe in us, who listen without judgment, and who cheer us on makes all the difference.


Support can boost our confidence, help us bounce back from challenges, and fuel our motivation to keep growing. It can also be a source of comfort and joy, reminding us that we’re not alone in this journey called life.

Having family, friends, and colleagues around can inspire and uplift us. They help celebrate each other’s wins and offer a shoulder to lean on during tough times.


Let’s embrace the power of support throughout our lives. After all, as the inspiring women at “50 and Wiser” showed us, together, we are wiser, stronger, and capable of achieving incredible things.
