Don't Fear Middle Age

This week I sat down with Marianne Williamson, the best-selling author who has devoted her career to helping people embrace their spirituality as they go through changes in their lives.

If you're fearing the major life change of middle age, Marianne Williamson can help. In her new book, The Age of Miracles: Embracing the New Midlife, she sets out to redefine this time in people's lives so that you can think of this as a period of renewal and joy, instead of fear and regret.

In this episode of Change Nation, Williamson shares some of her best techniques for reframing change as a positive, joyful experience.
