Being and Being Bold

‘What are you doing?’ confronts you every time you tweet on Twitter.  Then, in Facebook – ‘What are you doing?’  You start yelling inside, “I’m just being – that’s what I’m doing! – What’s wrong with being?”

You’re just being. You’re being wonderful. You’re being happy. Maybe you’re being sixty, like me – sixty years bold. Like you, I’m just being me and life is wonder-full.

Life crescendos as the sixth decade opens. Being 50 was the best time in life – then. But being sixty is even better – life just keeps getting better!’  A little plot of earth apparent on the horizon just intensifies appreciation and delight in absolutely everything.

Give me a ‘B’  – and put it in front of the word ‘old’.

Give me an “R’ – and put it in front of the word ‘aging’.

There are a few global authorities on being bold. I’ve just decided to join them.  If it means I look like a fool, I’ll be honoured.   I hereby step up and take the official title of ‘ fool’ and ‘bard’ – the whole nine yards! Scroll and enjoy my song lyrics …  and please add your bit – it’s all about us all.  It’s now my solemn duty to make you smile – I take that seriously (and I’m allowed to be serious sometimes too). I’m not a comedian at all. I’m not even going to try. I’m simply going to be me – that should be enough – give me an ‘M’ and an ‘E’ and sit them happily side by side, content just being.

Hmmm – now put that ‘B’ that ‘R’, that ME” all together with a big, delighted whoop of an ‘OO’ in the middle…   and you have BOOMER. Have a boomer life, being you – ya hoo! – (and following this blog of course!!!!).  Hugs.

    Radha, you are just divine!

    Your new flavor is deliciously more’ish…. 🙂

    You have certainly made me smile reading all these wonderful playful songs… I’m delighted and very impressed!

    All my love to you xox


  2. Radha, now that’s what i’m talkin ’bout!!! You have the kind of attitude that inspired me to create a grown up cartoon for women 40+(+++)! Perrie Meno-Pudge® believes MIDLIFE ROCKS!!! She takes life’s lemons and makes lemonade to help her navigate through midlife. Her spirit is unstopable and her sense of humor remains strong. (she doesn’t have Bail money).
    I hope you will stop by our website and help us celebrate the kind of spirit that lives so strongly in midlife women.

  5. Hi Radha,

    I’m glad the words keep coming. I hope they keep coming, then I can keep enjoy your creativity.

    I enjoyed the post.

    I like the idea about being who you are. My mantra is: “Be yourself is taken”, but I don’t have the creativity to use lyrics to say that.

    Did you see my blogpost in which I recommend to check out a very nice blog of an other creative Lady ? You should check it out.

    By the way, did you search for your old childhood friend? I didn’t yet.I’ve been too busy.

    Enjoy your weekend.

  6. Love your blog! …and the pictures.
