Our 60s are one of the most important transition periods of our lives. With our kids out of the house, our social context is changing. Retirement is “in sight,” even if we don’t plan on quitting our jobs any time soon. Turning 60 is also the time when many of us start to question our place in the world. We may even look at our lives and ask, “Is this it? Surely I was meant to do something more!”
Women over 60 are often interested in self-improvement and making positive changes in our lives. New Year’s Resolutions can be an ideal opportunity to take stock of where we are in life and chart a course for where we want to go during the year ahead.
If there’s one characteristic that many women over 60 seem to possess in abundance, it’s our sense of resilience and dynamism. Women over 60 have witnessed massive changes in society and in ourselves during the course of our lives.
As we approach another New Year, it’s time to take stock of what else we might like to change in our lives by setting some New Year’s resolutions.
Season alert: autumn has arrived. This is actually my time of the year because it feels abundantly joyful to adhere to the custom of planting new seeds and witnessing new growth. In a spiritual sense, autumn is about taking inventory and making an assessment of where you are on your life’s path. It’s a time of questioning and a time of answering the unresolved. I always ask myself, “How are you feeling, Joan Frances? What’s the latest in the land of Joanie Moran?”
Do you feel like society tells you that you are “too old” to do certain things? Do you want to break out of your self-imposed chains and become the person that you always knew you could be? Then, my interview with personal development expert, John Tarnoff is for you!
Every day, we are bombarded by negative stereotypes about the aging process. In the movies and on TV, we are told that aging is something to be feared. Hollywood really does seem to think that aging is, at best, a necessary evil and, at worst, a punch-line.
So, you’ve decided that you want to reinvent yourself after 60. Now what? As many people in their 60s and 70s have discovered the hard way, reinventing yourself in retirement is much harder than it sounds. If you are looking out at the next 2-3 decades with a sense of trepidation, my latest interview with the inspiring John Tarnoff is for you!
Are you interested in reinventing yourself after 60? Then, my latest interview with John Tarnoff is for you! Baby boomers are special. At every point in our history, we have changed the world and reinvented our lives.
So many people go through life trying to “find themselves.” We read self-help books, hire career counselors, take trips to think about our life, write in diaries and, for the most part, we end up where we started.
If you ask most young people what they expect life after 60 to be like, they will probably use phrases like “winding down” or “preparing for retirement.” Nothing could be further from the truth!
Unless you are one of the lucky few that have been able to retire in luxury, the chances are you are busier now than you have ever been.
