WELCOME TO BABY BOOMER MEMOS
THE AGING BABY BOOMER ATTITUDE
Naturally, Baby Boomers have various attitudes about aging.
What is yours?
These boomers push the truth away by singing: 'Age is just a number, age is just a number, la,la,la ...'
If only this worked.
They are often bewildered, sometimes stunned, and rarely pleased with getting older.
In numbed panic, these boomers repeatedly ask,
'How did I get here?' Duh!
These boomers view signs of aging as opponents to beat down. They are recruiting members for the rock band, Rage Against Aging. Want to join?
Indignant boomers ask, 'How could this happen to me?' Double Duh!!
DEEP DENIAL BOOMERS
They contend that if aging (and being old) is not acknowledged, spoken about, or admitted to, it will go away. When confronted with the effects of aging, i.e. physical, mental, and emotional changes, et cetera these boomers insist, 'This is not who I am.'
Ummm ... then who are you?
These boomers appreciate the gift of aging and celebrate longevity.
Can you? Will You?
As you probably know, a grateful attitude brings the most joy and the least angst.
Boomers say 'No' ...
