Welcome! Silver Disobedience® is a rebellion against ageism. Silver Disobedients™ know that each year of life has made us stronger, smarter, wiser & more relevant. In fact, we are the World’s Most Powerful Population.™ Daily we gather here and on @SilverDisobedience social media pages to discuss thoughts about aging & life. We hope you join the conversation and share your wisdom.

I’m Dian Griesel, founder and Chief Influencer of the Silver Disobedience™ Movement. I’m also a new Icon model with Wilhelmina Models, proof that life can really change in your fifties and beyond! In less than a couple of years, thanks to silver hair and a smile, I’ve appeared in more than twenty national campaigns including Lancome, Sephora, Sally Hansen, Oprah, Amazon and more.  This Blog started less than two years ago — yet hundreds of thousands of people are now reading these daily posts on this website; on branded @SilverDisobedience pages on Facebook & Instagram; and @DianGriesel on Twitter. FAR more exciting to me is the discussion that follows each post!!! I love reading and responding to how each Silver Disobedient™ interprets my meditative blog posts and in turn openly shares their personal perspectives and wisdom.

The Silver Disobedience community consists of a positive, powerful time-warp of individuals who seem to be sadly misunderstood by many marketers. Aged 48 to 100+, our collective of multi-faceted people consists of the first ever in history who might be carrying diaper bags for grandchildren or great-grandchildren — yet, because of advances in medicine, adoptions & second marriages — some of us may also be raising our own children as well. The Circle of Life that we represent is an unusual amalgamation of active folks who are rocking life in basically every vertical imaginable. We’re not all retired and those of us who are, are re-writing history with their versions of what “retirement” looks like!

We’ve formed a wonderful, supportive and growing community. I’ve done a lot of things in my life—but interacting with every follower via @SilverDisobedience has been my most fascinating and rewarding journey ever.  For this, I thank you all.

Peace, Love and Friendship, Dian
