I was really excited last week to discover Twenty Four At Heart was listed as one of the 10 Best Blogs For Baby Boomers. There are tens of millions of blogs written. (The last count I heard was 76 MILLION and it's probably much higher by now!)
I was squealing with excitement at the honor of being on this list!
I was so excited, that is, until I thought, "Wha … ???? DO PEOPLE OUT THERE THINK I'M A BABY BOOMER? Don't they know I'm only twenty four?"
And then a friend reminded me I'm not really twenty four, which totally messed with my psyche. And then another friend told me anyone 40 and up is considered a Baby Boomer.
Is that true?
Have I become … a Baby Boomer?
Something about it sounds sorta … old.
At twenty four, am I … oh dear God, OLD?
Are you old too?
Because I don't think of any of you as being old.
Also, as much as I love and welcome all my "baby boomer" readers, I have readers of all ages. I get comments from college students. and single men, and young moms, and well endowed men, and mid-lifers, and grandmas and grandpas. I love all of you and all of you seem quite young at heart when you write to me or leave comments. In fact, one of my youngest-at-heart readers signs her comments as "Old Woman" and yet, I think her heart is one of the youngest I've ever encountered.
And isn't that really the only place age matters?
In our hearts.
I am putting the thought of being old entirely out of my head and going right back to my mental age of twenty four. At the same time, I would like to say I was thrilled to death to have Twenty Four At Heart recognized on such an awesome list.
I want each of you to know I'm sending you a huge virtual hug today. I'm so happy you come to visit and spend time with me. I'm so honored you've helped make Twenty Four At Heart grow into such a great little community of its own.
Really, I'm tremendously touched.
