LINK TO AND JOIN MY NEW WEBSITE BOOMERRISING.COM.
Current website will be shut down at the end of June, 2018.
Swiss psychiatrist, Carl Jung, said:
“The afternoon of life is just as full of meaning as the morning; only, it’s meaning and purpose are different.”
Much truth can be found in Mr. Jung’s thoughtful take on aging.
Aging purposefully is about:
- digging deeper
- living with wellness
- being purposeful
- remaining relevant
- sharing amply
- loving generously
- reaching inward toward your authentic self, not toward perfection.
Boomers are programmed for success. We’re goal-centric. Remaining purposeful in a complex environment is tough. Finding true north is a constant challenge.
BoomerRising’s mission is:
- to expand your view of the possibilities
- to amplify your strengths
- to offer ideas and resources to move you toward your best Boomer self.
Joining my voice will be the voices of other writers sharing stories that offer sure-footed companionship as you proceed along the path.
This weeks articles include:
Unretirement: The Hunger for Reinvention: Kirsten Schowalter’s take on leaving a legacy. Do you have a post-retirement hunger to search for relevancy and meaning? How is this curiosity expressed? More people see retirement as “fluid” – an opportunity for reinvention. Do you identify with the hunger?
In Relationships Matter: “You Got to Have Friends“. The nature of friendship changes as we age. Writer Stephanie Raffelock discusses the qualities of being a good friend and engaging in community. It’s difficult to make new friends as we age. Stephanie asks the question: “Do we withdraw, or do we continue to risk new friendships?” Friendship is part of the human journey – friends walk down the road with us.
I contribute to the premier release of BoomerRising! with:
Wellness: I Have Seen the Enemy and the Enemy is Me! – My take on the first days of retirement and the ensuing push-back on my pledge to get into shape.
Fonda, Redford and Redemption in “Our Souls at Night” – my review on the recent Redford/Fonda Netflix film about finding redemption in unexpected love. Watching the two stars pair up again is a treat.

There’s lots more and lots more to come.

For the past 18 months, you’ve shown appreciation for my existing website, howardfishman.net.
I send you my heartfelt thanks.
Your support and comments helped me understand what my next steps should be as I continue to my own journey.
I hope you’ll follow the link below to join me as I begin my third act reinvention.
As a thank you, I’ll send a PDF entitled: 50 Links to Information for Curious Boomers. The links will direct you to articles, podcasts, websites and other cultural resources relating to Boomers at work, in life and in culture.
