Blogs for Boomers: Living With Passion

Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn

AGING WITH PASSION

How do Boomers successfully age with passion? Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn kept their passion for life and for each other!

So, for all of those rockin’ baby boomers out there, this post is for you!

Previously, in a blog post titled, “How to Enjoy a More Productive Retirement”I shared 

3 P’s to help us remember what is important: 

  • PASSION
  • PURPOSE
  • PROMISE               

 

Therefore, I dedicate this post to the first part of the formula for staying cheerful, patient, productive, and joyful, even in our “aging season”.

HOW TO KEEP OUR PASSION

Passion can come in many forms. We can be passionate about:

  • OUR PARTNERS
  • OUR FAMILIES
  • OUR JOBS
  • OUR HOBBIES
  • OUR PETS

And you can probably list more things I haven’t thought of.

My goal is to inspire you to find passion in growing older. I will be sharing articles and videos to urge you to keep enjoying life in your journey.

WATCH THIS VIDEO OF A TED TALK ON AGING WITH PASSION

Published on Sep 3, 2014

Author Isabel Allende is 71. Yes, she has a few wrinkles—but she has incredible perspective too. In this candid talk, meant for viewers of all ages, she talks about her fears as she gets older and shares how she plans to keep on living passionately.

This video is about 8 minutes long. I have watched it three times! Isabel is funny, entertaining, and insightful. I would like to write some of her comments on index cards and place them on my bathroom mirror.

I hope you also laugh and absorb wisdom on how to stay passionate as we age!

Please comment on this post to let me know if this “rang true” for you!
