As teenagers, boomers declared, “We’ll never get old.” Now, as they approach retirement and old age is beckoning them to join “Club Decline,” boomers have changed their mantra to a defiant “We’re not goin’ there” – without knowing what it really takes to avoid “goin’ there”.
Barbara Morris, author of "I’m Not Goin’ There! – A Gutsy Girlfriend Guide for Boomers Who Don’t Want to Spend Their Golden Years Cuddling with Their Cats" knows what it takes to avoid “goin’ there.”
A pharmacist, Barbara worked full time until age seventy-six. Interacting daily with boomers and seniors exposed the traps, lures and pitfalls of the aging process and the retirement lifestyle. The author insists women can avoid many of the traps and pitfalls by refusing identity as a “senior” or becoming part of the traditional retired culture. She also cautions against trendy “let’s age gracefully” thinking and behavior that leads unsuspecting women to premature decline.
At 83, Barbara Morris has beaten the babushka off of Mother Time to a degree that amazes even her, and she is eager to share what she knows to help younger women kick to the curb traditional thinking and behaviors that lead straight to Club Decline. I’m Not Goin’ There! is packed with gutsy girlfriend advice and information not seen elsewhere because it’s the author’s personal first hand experience as well as what she unintentionally learned from boomers and retirees.
