One of the advantages of reaching our 60s is that we’re (hopefully) so much wiser than we used to be! Isn’t it amazing how much our lives have changed and evolved? As we get older we often realize that some things that used to be important to us no longer are so terribly significant. Certain dreams and priorities and relationships fall by the wayside – and yet we also have the good fortune to discover new passions in life, adventures to pursue, new people to share with and experiences to enjoy.

Individualism is a distinctive quality of boomer women. Whatever image we choose to present to the world, we have secret passions. These are the interests that intrigue us and determine how we relax and unwind. Our hobbies are what we do with “our time”.
For women, there also seems to be a universal desire to express our creativity. We have an insatiable desire to shape order from chaos and to create things that never existed before. Women who have children will understand this. We want to produce magic with paints, wool and glass or create beauty with words and music.
I remember the day I resigned from my corporate job and transitioned to the life of an entrepreneur. My passion was to focus full time on building Sixty and Me, a community for women over 60. I wanted to reinvent my life and find a more flexible work style.
