Hi! This is Bonnie, founder of Savoring Your Sixties. Thanks for stopping by. Things are changing here and this site won’t be up much longer. (You can read more about that at Time to Let Go.)

Since you’re here though, I hope you’ll take a look around.

Savoring Your Sixties was born out of my own struggle with turning 60. Searching for answers, I found resources and tools that changed my life. Then I wanted to share them with other women and hopefully make their journeys to 60 and beyond a little easier.

The Savoring Your Sixties website is filled with articles, tools, resources, and inspiration designed to help you ease your struggles, begin to feel better about your future, and take the necessary steps to discover what would be deeply satisfying and exciting for you in this decade.

Also, if you hop on over to New Here? I’ve hand-picked some articles I think you’ll find particularly helpful.

Wishing you all the best,

I’m subscribing to your e-mails but wonder whether it would apply to me since I just turned 77. I’m in good health but have anxiety due to physical facial changes, namely sagging and fat loss in the face and a stringy neck that has absolutely changed/impacted how I see myself and elimination of certain clothing that exacerbates the afore mentioned. People say I look young for my age but I only see the negatives.

If your info. is really for the “younger” set, please advise since I already have a lot of e-mail info.

Thanking you in advance of your answer,

Hi, Penny! Sorry not to see your post here till just now. My site has had some technology issues and I’ve not been able to access it. I’ve already responded to you via email so I won’t comment further here.

Becoming more uncertain and have fewer answers about the future. Financially able to retire but ambivalent about closing my business. Material things have lost importance.

Hi, Beth! Yes, things change and more importantly WE change as we grow older. Some of the changes are good; others are harder. All the best to you in discovering what matters to you now and what you want to do in the next years.

Hi Bonnie,
I live in Australia, and operate a large mature women’s group called GO Girls.
For some years I have also been operating a Facebook Page called GO Girls International, attracting mature aged women from all over the world.
However I have now discontinued that site and just opened a new Facebook Site called GO Girls Global. This is a mature aged girlfriend site – providing friendship, social interaction and innovation for women, by women.
I wonder, if I joined Savoring You Sixties, if I could sometimes share some of your interesting articles on my site.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Kindest regards
Yvonne Richards

Hi, Yvonne! I’d rather you didn’t post my entire articles on your site and you are welcome to share links to my articles. Thanks.

While I should be working, I’ve started to peruse the ‘net’ for blogs or websites about what it’s like to turn 60….60!!! I’m having a really hard time with it. I also had a hard time with turning 40. I think my struggle, is that my Mom and Grandmother both passed at 65 and I think history could repeat itself….I’m not sick, take care of myself, not a smoker and love wine and fun with friends.
Any suggestions about how to overcome the anxiety, would be welcomed.

Hi, Dana! You’re not alone in struggling with 60. I dreaded it. Most of us, including myself, have learned that life after 60 can be just fine. There are challenges, of course, and 60 is not the end of the life as we’ve known it.

I can see why your mind could be alarmed by your family history and, of course, that isn’t necessarily going to be your fate. May you have many more happy, healthy, fun, and fulfilling years!

Happy to have found you. Stellar 60’s are right around the corner.

10 Bonnie October 3, 2017 at 5:18 pm

May your 60s be stellar indeed, Shandra.

Bonnie, I read your post about discontinuing your blog. I want to encourage you to reconsider. I think you touch in a positive way and help many women you never know about. Me, for one. Many of the issues you help them, us, with are personal and private so they don’t talk about them, they don’t respond to you. The silent ones you never hear from, never know about, are some who benefit the most. Please reconsider.

12 Bonnie October 25, 2017 at 12:34 pm

I hear you, Lynne. I have done more than enough thinking about this the last couple of years though. I regret that those who have or would benefit from Savoring Your Sixties won’t have that help anymore. And it is time for me to stop.

Well girls only now have I found my way here. Bonnie thank you for doing this blog for all us sixty something gals. I will enjoy the time that’s left to discover what others are saying. God Bless you going forward. I’m still wearing my dancing shoes! Have fun sisters♡

You’re welcome, Theresa. Sorry you’re arriving around the time I’m departing. Keep on dancing!
