Hi! This is Bonnie, founder of Savoring Your Sixties. I wish we could have a face to face conversation. If we could, I would ask you, “What brought you here? What are you searching for?”

Then I would listen. Perhaps we would go beneath the surface a bit, get to know each other a little better. I would probably share a few of the things that I have learned from my own journey. Then, I would listen some more before offering you my suggestions as to what I think would help you.

Since we can’t do that now, I’m going to make some educated guesses based on my experience and my work with other women who are in the “neighborhood” of 60. See if one or more describes what brought you here.

Is This You?

    • You are struggling, struggling, struggling with turning 60 or being 60. You prefer it to the alternative (death!) but you are still feeling trapped and miserable about this milestone.


    • 60 sounds old to you but you don’t feel old. In fact, you can’t believe that you actually are that old. How did that happen?


    • When you think about the future – which you’re doing a lot these days! – you don’t see anything to look forward to. You wonder what you’re going to do with yourself in your 60s and beyond.


    • Or, perhaps you are taking the 60’s  in stride, sailing along, and you’re still asking, “What shall I do with the rest of my life?” and so far not coming up with many answers.


    • Maybe you’re okay with your age but you long to make a difference in the world. You want to do something that matters, something meaningful, but you can’t figure out what that is.


  • Or it could be you have an idea about what you want to do, but just can’t get going on it.

If any of these descriptions fit you, you’re in the right place.

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. Now, I want to share them with women like you and hopefully make your journey 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.

I’m glad you found your way to Savoring Your Sixties and hope you’ll find much here that speaks to you. And someday I hope we’ll have a “real conversation.” I’d like that!

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.

5 GO Girls Global July 25, 2017 at 3:58 am

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!
