About Us

Have you ever thought:

“I can’t be happy without losing something.”

“They don’t get it. They don’t see that I’m upset.”

“I’m too much. I can’t do anything without being judged.”

“Nobody texts. Nobody comes by. I don’t go out. I don’t do anything. It’s weird. Slowly I found myself here. What happened?”

We’ve been there. 

I’m Kirsten, founder and author and I’m Megan, educator and filmmaker, and we’re the women behind Aging Courageously - a place where all people have the choice and support to keep growing up at any time and any place in their lives. No matter what’s happened before. 

After working with middle school through college youth the past 5 years and after speaking globally about grief, loss, and starting again, we’ve learned what it takes to know what direction you want your life to go in even if things haven’t always gone your way.   

What if you could break the hold your friends have over you without worrying if you’re being mean?

What if you could be around your family without faking it anymore?

What if you were surrounded by people who seek you out because they know what you’ve gone through and want you to help them with it?

With Aging Courageously, no matter what people have done or what has happened, it’s possible to keep growing up without getting weighed down.
