It really occurred to me, like a sledge hammer to my head, that being in my position, at my age, that the potential to use my “boomerness”, (sorry, new word), to reach out and share the experience and knowledge of being over 50. That for our website to really catch the population that I want, I needed to reach out to my fellow boomers, so today’s blog was born.
Everyone who has reached the milestone of fifty years old, let us band together and accept this accomplishment, congrats, now is not the time to worry or be despondent.
Hey we made it, the milestone of turning fifty is that magical time that we must embrace and understand, we still got a lot of things to do.
This point in our lives is a pivotal point of our existence, our options, well, let us grow young together, (as we age we get younger in spirit in my opinion), or let the journey end and go and sit on the couch.
Well screw that noise, frankly I have been anticipating having this knowledge and upper statesmanhood (dang, another new word), and want to continue on in the bold hard way.
So if your physical, emotional, and or spiritual bank account is overdrawn, step back and take a deep breath, because worrying about this stuff is only going to add to the stress, and that my friends is not good, and won’t serve us.
It is disease that will kill us, not the grey hair, (which if you see my video blogs you know I have plenty), so prepare your bodies for having some fun and let’s get going.
So what that our college age children are moving back home because they are college educated and can’t find a job. So what if our parents are getting up there and require our precious time. We don’t have the time to sit around, too many people need us to lead, and that’s what we are going to do, lead.
Remember the big three and you will be a ripe old 95 before you know it, they are-
- Exercise- and moving our bodies
- Eating right- no D word here (diet)
- Rest-getting the quality we need and deserve
The whole reason I did the body building show at 50 was this, showing my brothers and sisters that we can make a change, that anything is possible with the right attitude. So let’s share our feelings, find that friendship and band together, we owe it to ourselves to live and be happy.
Thanks so much for reading,
51 and still going strong J
