Boomer’s Ramblings “Acting My Age is a State of Mind”

Not really sure how to start this one. So, I get up each morning and get ready for work. You know the usual routine. I go to work, do my job, get things done, and come home again. I told my lady friend Deborah one time, that I work out occasionally, I am not a fanatic about it. It does help me to feel a little younger. OR I should say I just don’t feel as old as I look. There are, however, two different times during the day when I feel my age. The first time is when I get up, head to the bathroom to take my morning shower. I get out of the shower, I look in the mirror,  the grey hair on my head, and the slight flabbiness around the waist remind me, that I am 52. The second time of the day is when I first get home from work. I proceed to sit down and that is that. I am too relaxed to do anything else. It makes it very hard to get motivated again.

There are times when I do actually do stuff after work. Probably not as often as I should. I am not completely dysfunctional. Sometimes I even exercise. Although, I am a major procrastinator.

I do believe part of the reason for my semi-youthful attitude. My work ethics. I go into work, and put more energy into it than most of the young bucks I work around. I also believe my exuberance for life helps. My desire to not go down like the generation before me. My want to not be a burden to my children when I am older.

I suppose it is all a state of mind over matter. As long as I can keep a young outlook in my mind, love in my heart, and stay true to my soul. Then the age of my body doesn’t matter.


About Bigboomer

Hello, first of all I would like to thank you for visiting my blogsite. I am going to tell you a little about me. My name is Ray, I started writing back in high school. Every once in a while I would come up with a few ideas and would write them down. Most of which became poems others became short stories. Some of my inspirations are of the heart, some of them come from the thoughts of the day. You will see, as you browse threw my site my poetry is about as diverse as you can get. I hope that as you read them some will have you thinking of love, while others will make you feel sorrow. I would like some of them to set you off to an adventure. Finally, I have some poems that may make you hungry. I do have some inspirations that just plane turn into ramblings or rants as, if you read in here, you will see. I have managed to get two books published so far, the first one is titled Pathways, it may be found at xlibris.com/RayBohdan.html. there you can view a couple of excerpts form the book. The second book is Mingling Hues of My Mind it is at publish America A little bit more about me. I am fifty-one years old I have three children, Rainney, Elisa, and Anthony and two well, actually, three grandchildren Raeanne Marie, Graycee, and Amaya. I guess I could go on, but then I am afraid this will come out sounding like a dating profile. Part of my site will be dedicated to my poetry, I plan to break it down into different sections and organize it by type/style. Another section of this site will be dedicated to my blog it will be about my rants/thoughts of the day. These will vary from political, to personal, to comical. I will talk about most anything and everything that I feel may be of interest to someone. I also will devote a section to some of my favorite recipes with hints on how to capture his/her heart by winning their stomach. My favorite foods are Italian and Mexican, but this section will not be limited to those two types. I do believe however, that the most important part of my site will be the dedication pages. These will be to memorialize special loved ones and friends, as well as thank those that have made purchases of my afore-mentioned book. This is exactly what you think it is. A way for me to sell my self as a writer. Publicly get my words and thoughts out into the world. Please believe me when I say that this in no way demeans or diminishes my passions for the people and the love of which I have written, and will continue to write. I trust that once you read my poems you will feel the love i have felt, the pains I have been through, and the joys of life itself. Once again I thank you for stopping by please enjoy.
