I don’t feel old
April 11th, 2024

Wendy – Hey, Boomer I agree with Anne Lamott.  “I don’t feel old, because your inside self doesn’t age.” Anne Lamott published a story in the Washington Post today titled, It’s not so ‘terribly strange to be 70.’ Turning 70 was an awakening and a reset for me. Interestingly, it was not as traumatic as turning 60 or 65. On those previous milestone birthdays, I was still in the throes of internal ageism. I feared losing the youthful energy and youthful outlook I had accepted as necessary. Coming of age as a Baby Boomer instilled in us the fear of aging. I have become more accepting... Continue Reading

Embrace your new horizons
April 10th, 2024

I came across this saying “Don’t be afraid to go where you’ve never gone and do what you’ve never done, because both are necessary to have what you’ve never had and be who you’ve never been”.  Ir got me thinking.  As you approach retirement, it’s important to embrace the idea that stepping outside your comfort zone is not only helpful but necessary for personal growth and satisfaction in your new phase of life. The notion of “Don’t be afraid to go where you’ve never gone and do what you’ve never done” carries deep... Continue Reading

Quiet Quashers: Unseen Change Resistance in the Workplace

Quiet Quashers: Unseen Change Resistance In The Workplace &Raquo; Adobestock 646605814 300X169 1

“We’re living in a time of unprecedented change.” If I had a dime for every time I heard that phrase over the past few years, I’d be a wealthy woman. But it’s undeniably true. Rapidly advancing technology, the proliferation of AI, shifting demographics, changing global markets, organizational realignments, and more continue to transform the workplace in profound ways and at a profound pace. It’s easy, as a leader, to focus on the mechanics of what must happen, and the action steps and milestones required to reach the future state. In the process, we can forget that change is fundamentally... Continue Reading

Life is a Journey
November 9th, 2023

Wendy – Hey, Boomer Back in March of this year, I wrote a blog and did a show about Taking a Pause. I was rereading that article and I thought it was pretty good. I also thought that there were parts of it where I wanted to go deeper. Steven Tyler from Aerosmith sings Amazing, which contains the phrase “Life is a Journey, not a Destination.” This song is about hitting bottom, feeling the pain of wrong choices and bad decisions. And how, amazingly, we get past them. I am sure we have all been there at times in our lives. The chorus of the song says: “It’s amazingWith the blink of... Continue Reading

Natural Rhythm of Life: Staying Active, Engaged, and Vibrant
October 18th, 2023

Wendy – Hey, Boomer There is a natural rhythm of life. That is not a profound statement. We all know the rhythm. We are born, we grow, if we are lucky, we have a long healthy life and eventually it ends. There’s a narrative we’re changing here at Hey Boomer: retirement age should not represent the closing but rather the opening of a new, exciting chapter. Living meaningful and vibrant yet peaceful lives where the rhythm of life becomes a harmonious balance of exploration, self-expression, and fulfilment. Embracing Transitions and Reinvention Change is a fact of life. This sentiment is... Continue Reading

6 Reasons Change Is So Challenging

6 Reasons Change Is So Challenging &Raquo; Change Cycle1

It’s no coincidence that the word ‘change’ fits into the word ‘challenge’. Change is challenging, but it doesn’t have to be stressful or unpredictable. We all face changes in our lives. Whether on a personal level or at work, change is inevitable. By taking a deeper dive into the dynamics of the human change process, we can better understand our reluctance to change or the steps where the change process breaks. For most people, it’s not the idea of change itself that is so daunting, but rather the transition phases of the cycle where there is nothing to hold on to. Think about the... Continue Reading

Gifts Beyond Physicality: Intellect, Wisdom, Experience, & Love
July 6th, 2023

Wendy – Hey, Boomer by Jon R. Wiener, Published in the 2022 Rhapsodist, A-B Tech’s primary venue for literature and fine art In 1977, my father Lou was 70 years old. I was 24. Most of my life I remembered him having to be on crutches to walk anywhere. He had bilateral hip osteoarthritis, and by that time had already had two total hip replacements (and was going to have another in his future). A combination of very intense athletic activity and injuries in his youth and a World War II explosion injury had damaged his hips, and he would spend the rest of his life on those crutches. Louis... Continue Reading

The Perfect Time to Take a Pause
March 29th, 2023

Wendy – Hey, Boomer 5 Steps for being in the Neutral Zone One door closes and another door opens. Are you really ready to walk right into that door? In my experience as a Transition Coach, I would say NO. When one door closes, it is the perfect time to take a pause. The inclination of transitioning from an ending is to jump right back in. You want to mask the pain, sadness, loss or loneliness that comes from that closed door. You end your career, and immediately start looking for what else will fill your time. A relationship ends and the loneliness is awful, so you immediately start looking... Continue Reading
