There are some great things about being a single Baby Boomer.
I am now free from the loving shackles of parenthood. A few years ago my child, who obviously loved his childhood too much, would not leave home; so, instead, I moved out, and not just down the road: I went interstate. Leaving my son was not my only reason for moving, but it did help me start a new era of my life.The next great thing is that although a few parts may creak and groan, and there may be a few extra pills to keep me well, I am still feeling young and full of life. I enjoy the freedom I now have, to socialise and indulge in many avenues of interest; this has included writing a book, which is now finished. I enjoy the freedom of waking up when I’m ready, without the insistence of an annoying alarm. With few immediate responsibilities, I can decide what I would like to do, or not do, each day. One could say I have waited a lifetime for this luxury. I like the fact that at this stage of life I can now plan, or in my case dream, where I would like to travel and plan the events I now have time to attend. Although socialising in a new place and state has its immediate limitations, I hope to slowly find new friends and, like so many, enjoy this next stage of my life. I look forward to meeting other single and married boomers, recapturing some of the fun and adventure that somehow got lost over the years.
