AGING BABY BOOMERS MOURN THE LOSS OF TIME
Aging Baby Boomers' life-clocks are ticking so loudly it sounds as if alarm bells are announcing our remaining time is dwindling. Gulp! Gasp! Deep Breath!
Does this solemn news re-inspire you to emphatically say 'Yes' to do what you have always wanted to do (but kept postponing), with whomever you choose ... or alone?
And, to say 'No' to whatever you do not want to do and to those with whom you do not want to spend precious time? No exceptions. No excuses. No regrets. No more waiting.
Pre-Covid-lockdowns, most boomers were completely over-and-done with the process of regretting the time we had wasted and disrespected on silly things, and even sillier people.
Once that was accomplished, boomers - especially retired first-wavers and midpointers - got busy sorting through and emptying bucket lists, as well as organizing and fulfilling wish lists.
Overall, we focused on achieving our aspirations - new ones or those put on hold, decades ago.
Last-wave boomers who are still working, with children living at home, were looking forward to retirement and empty nests.
Except ... we know what happened. Covid-lockdowns put our bucket and wish lists on pause. Each passing day, week, then month of lockdowns stacked another layer of mold on our bucket and wish lists.
Post-lockdowns, albeit the sadness and tears may linger, let's wipe away the mold and move forward with a renewed commitment to respect and appreciate time.
Take a step forward by reaffirming the intention of doing what you want, when you want, and with whom you want.
By the way: Thank you for spending time reading this blog.
A popular item on Baby Boomers' wish lists is to have at least one more fantastic adventure. Well, a lot more. Why not?
