Welcome to the website and blog of motivational speaker Rogena Walden. Here you’ll find information and inspiration to make the rest of your life the best of your life.

We all change as we age. The photos above span the first 60 years of my life. My hair has been different lengths over the years, and I’ve gone from not needing glasses to switching between glasses and contact lenses. When it became necessary to wear reading glasses with my contacts, I went back to just wearing glasses—less of a hassle.

Over six decades, my body has gone through a number of changes, too. The contents have shifted and I see parts of my grandmother when I look closely. Despite that, I am excited because there is research that shows many positive changes that are not well-known to the public. While some people cringe at the thought of getting older, I’m discovering that there are reasons to be curious and look forward to the next chapter.

When you get beyond the myths about aging, you find that there’s lots to celebrate. If you’re ready for a fresh perspective, if you’re curious about the good things you can expect in this new stage of life, you’ve come to the right place.

This website is the home of my new blog, in which I will share my experiences and what I discover on a variety of aging issues. You are invited to check out the posts from time to time and join the conversation.

If you are looking for a speaker to share insights into how to remain vital and engaged as you age—offered with a blend of humor and practical strategies, take a look at my AgeWise topics.

There’s never been a better time to age!
