'THE PERFECT AGE' FOR AGING BABY BOOMERS
How do you respond to: What is the best thing about being your age?
Is that silence I hear?
Next question: What is the perfect age?
When most Baby Boomers turn back the clock to the perfect age we usually stop at the presumed perfect physical age - 20ish.
Boomers fondly remember our twenties as the prime of 'beauty' and 'physical strength.'
Boomer women report if it were possible to retrieve their younger bodies, they would flaunt them by wearing bikinis and high heels, 24/7.
Boomer men report they would go shirtless in order to show off their toned muscles and flat stomachs. Plus, they would wear their hair long and flowing. (Boomer men miss their hair.)
Here's the interesting follow-up
When these same boomers remember their youthful poor judgement and foolish mistakes, they pause. On second thought, the majority is reluctant to trade aging wisdom, self-awareness, and confidence for younger, albeit, beautiful bodies.
As we all know, age does not guarantee an end to poor judgement and foolish mistakes.
And, young people can be wise, self-aware, and confident.
I was not.
The boomer attitude ...
