Cultural anthropologist Dr. Angeles Arrien finds that wisdom and identify don't automatically come with age but do come with soul searching. "Fifty is a milestone when people tend to start shifting from an emphasis on ambition to an emphasis on meaning, from doing to being, from acquisition to divestiture, from me to we. It's a time of increased clarity and objectivity," says Dr. Arrien. She says we need to develop our bones—our funny bone, backbone, wishbone, and hollow bone.
