though, turning sixty is welcomed. The difference boils down to your attitude,
making the conscious decision to age gracefully.
It’s never too late to start your life over no matter how old you are. Turning
sixty can be the perfect age to start over and do what you have always wanted
to do with your life. With retirement and grown children, perhaps you’ve been
allotted with the gift of time so take advantage of it. Don’t take things too
seriously, make sure to laugh along the way. Get moving and get involved. Find
something you have always wanted to accomplish and do it!
I had the privilege of having one of my essays published in a wonderful book
entitled, Sixty Things To Do When You Turn Sixty. Published in September
2006, this book of essays captures the imaginations of those Baby Boomers out
there who are rounding the bend into their sixties. It is a positive and
enlightening look at what turning sixty can be for those who choose to make
something out of it.
I just learned that the Corvallis Public Library has Sixty Things To Do When
You Turn Sixty available and it’s checked out regularly. If you are
interesting in purchasing your own personal copy, please visit this page.
