THE NEW YEAR 2020
It wasn’t all that long ago, at least in my Boomer memory bank, that we approached the New Millennium ushering in the year 2000. There were so many stories of foreboding and apocalypse that one wasn’t exactly sure how the New Year and Millennium would unfold. Need I tell you that we unfolded just fine.
Now we fast forward and it’s 20 years later and, yep, we’re still here, albeit with surroundings slightly different. We have a global community that is within reach simply by pressing a button on social media, our news broadcasts are virtually instantaneous, GPS is available to guide us from start to finish with a simple request, healthcare has progressed to the point of enabling greater longevity, science has provided incalculable insights into the origins of our universe and solar system, the population of our fair state is now over 39 million, we have hand-held cell phones that have more computing power than what was on the Apollo 11 lunar lander, and we have 19 New Year’s in the rearview mirror.
Maybe, just maybe, we can sit back before 2019 winds down and reflect on this past year, and think of the joys in our lives, and the great events that happened to us big or small. A New Year and a New Decade rolling in. It’s never too late to make changes no matter our age. We are going to cover many topics in the New Year, so I hope you will join us and make our lives as relevant as we possibly can. Let’s usher out the old and bring in the New Year and New Decade with a bang
We’re taking time off to celebrate the holidays with family and friends, so expect us back in full throttle the first week of January. Please follow us on all our blogs and our home page for creativity, inspiration, and ideas to improve your life. It’s going to be an exciting year! Your BoomerGal and BoomerGuy in SoCal.
HAPPY NEW YEAR BOOMERS—MAY ALL YOUR HOPES AND DREAMS COME TRUE FOR 2020 AND BEYOND
