Insightful Barry Silverstein Article Introduces Our New “Boomer Life Reboots” Section! (And None Too Soon, As It’s Time to Start Planning How You Will Spend the Next Half of Your Life!)

September 21st, 2015

A NOTE FROM THE “BOOMER IN CHIEF:” Recently, one of my collegiate girlfriends posted photos on on Facebook, sharing that her newly retired husband had just beautifully completed an advanced yard project, and noting that if any friends thought it looked like something their yard would appreciate, she’d send him over, noting that he “has a lot of extra time between yoga and long road bike rides. Works cheap for good food and a glass or two of fine red wine.” One of her neighbors quickly responded, admiring the project, but noting that, “Sam (not his real name)... Read More

Why I Can’t Find Any Fun With – or Long term Benefit From – the “Generational” Bad Manners of Boomer Bashing

April 14th, 2015

By  Anne L. Holmes, APR NABBW’s “Boomer in Chief” Recently, Rick Montgomery, a reporter for the Kansas City Star called me, in my role as the Boomer in Chief of the National Association of Baby Boomer Women, for an interview. He was seeking my point of view on a generational demographic tidbit he had picked up recently: the fact that sometime this year, the Baby Boomer generation will no longer be country’s largest. Due to our kids’ aging into adulthood, we’ll be losing our famed demographic “pig in the python” position to a younger generation, the... Read More

Given That Loss and Change Are Constants in Life, Why Is It So Hard to Let Go Of That Which No Longer Serves Us?

August 12th, 2014

By Ann Leach NABBW’s Associate for Loss and Change Who else is feeling like our friend Time is playing a game with precious Earth by spinning her around faster and faster just to see who, and what, will hold on? The errands to run, the work to do, the family to feed, the house to maintain and the relationships to nourish just in one day alone can leave you feeling overwhelmed, upset and exhausted. But what if we didn’t have to hang on to the stuff that no longer serves us?  What if we could just let Time and Earth play their games but know that we don’t have to join in?  What if we... Read More

Is It the Season for After School Afternoons with a Kitchen Full Of Kids Doing Homework and Eating Snacks? Not in the Empty Nest

August 11th, 2014

By Natalie Caine, M.A. NABBW’s Associate for Empty Nest Back to school is already happening.  Parents are checking the lists and encouraging their children\’s hearts, saying, “All will be fine, it is going to be a fantastic year.” Then there is you, Mom and Dad.  I remember when I dropped my daughter off at college, three thousand miles from home. I knew I would be fine and I knew I would be sad. I did not know what I wanted to do with the free time nor with the longing for the phone to ring with her on the other end.  Sure texts were a connection, but there is nothing... Read More

Aging Boomers: Is 50 Really the New 30?

August 9th, 2014

By Meryl Ain For the NABBW The weeklong celebration of Hoda Kotb’s 50th birthday on the Today Show culminated with a congratulatory video message from First Lady Michelle Obama to a surprised and delighted Hoda. Throughout the week, 50 was celebrated as glamorous, sexy and a time for reinvention. This is all true, and I wish Hoda a happy birthday and many years of good health and fulfillment. But I have to think that it would have been nice when those of us in the leading edge of Baby Boomers turned 50 and then 60 to have had validation of how glamorous, sexy, and “young” we were. First,... Read More
