We boomers are lucky in so many ways. We’ve had people blaze paths ahead of us. We’ve been the beneficiaries. And it’s still happening, as BoomerCafé contributor Marcia Barhydt writes in Mandatory Retirement Flies Out The Window.
We like this advice about staying positive, from frequent contributor Marcia Barhydt. As she says, we are all getting older (which started, of course, the day we were born). But staying young? That’s something else, Marcia says. That’s up to your Boomer Mind and Body.
Usually on BoomerCafé we features stories about what boomers are doing to stay active and young. But boomer writer Marcia Barhydt puts a twist on the theme: she writes about “pre-boomers” who stay equally active and young.
It was first written in the 17th Century that the only constant in life is change. But there wasn’t really much change from generation to generation back then. Today though, it never stops. And that applies to boomers more than anyone else. Which is why we like this essay by boomer writer Marcia Barhydt about Reinvention, Boomer-Style.
As members of the luckiest generation, we baby boomers have little to complain about. But there’s something standing in the way of some of us, something Marcia Barhydt writes about in this essay.
