The Self Image of a Baby Boomer

Word Count:

Self image takes on a different role in Mid Life. It’s not a cocky attitude which spurs on winning and
powering another person. It is about having the self confidence to be comfortable in your own skin. Creating
a life and a style more suited for who you have become. It’s liking the ability to walk in your own shoes
and trying to copy or wish you were someone else. The self image of any aging baby boomer is unique.

Article Body:
An aging baby boomer finds many factions of self image changing on a daily basis. Mid Life becomes a point
of acceptance of yourself just the way you are. It’s not an obnoxious realization. It’s not that
you’re that you’re better than someone else, it’s more of a meeting of the mind, ego, heart and body...It
really great to know that once you accept yourself as who you are, you can make the decision to change or
alter any aspect. If there is any part of you that you physically don’t like or habits you wish you
neveryou find this brave place within to do something about it. You finally understand that your thoughts
create who you are. So, that little nursery rhyme that taught you that “If you believe you can, you can
andyou believe you can’t, you’re right” was so true. We realize that it does not matter how long it
learn to
takes something new or if we do it the best. We are the only one judging . Worrying about what everyone else
thinks is futile as they’re too busy re-designing their own lives to bother with ours...Baby Boomers begin
alter all aspects of our lives. The confidence and enthusiasm we can muster when we want to put our lives in
order is a giant aspect of our new found, self loving image. We change our walk and our talk. Environments
become an outer picture of our internal expressions. Color, style, relationships, careers and family
life on a new flow. Our friends and families also start changing as a positive and confidant environment
reaps more of the same.    Anything in life that is neglected will ultimately deteriorate. If you want
to be
successful in any area of your life, it needs to be acknowledged, nurtured and maintained. It’s time to
look mirror and become the best friend possible to the reflection you see. If you need to, trick your
in the
mind thinking you have a new hobby. This hobby is you. You need to put as much effort into liking and caring
for yourself as you do all the important people in your life. If your best friend, mate or child had a
you would do whatever you could to help. Give yourself permission to do the same for you...The imaginary
scales inside your body that measure stress and anxiety will wonder what happened. When you start
appreciating yourself and not expecting it to come from outside sources you will be amazed at how much more
you enjoy your days. Keep a little booklet next to your bed and before you turn out the light, write 5
things today that you can compliment yourself about. Do this for two weeks and measure your stress level and
you did
I would bet you keep doing it when you see and feel the positive results. You will probably sleep better
because compliments feel good to everyone and create the effect of a more positive self image. It also
becomes easier to compliment others and in turn it makes your life easier as you pass that good feeling
