Have you ever thought about being a platinum blonde? Anyone can be a blond, but when you toss in the word platinum it notches up the volume and the perception to another level.
So when I was thinking “how am I going to stand out in the vastness of the blogosphere” the first word that popped into my head was Platinum. Platinum is also an incredibly resilient metal, a prestige credit card and a multimillion dollar selling CD. Who would not want to be associated with prestige, multi millions and resilience?
So, welcome to my blog, Platinum Boomer. I am Kate Granado and this blog is for and about us baby boomers at the top of the boom. We are a unique generation. We have always been above and beyond the norm of the day, a step in front of major social movements, and not only ahead in personal evolution, we actually set the pace. Our footprints wove a path through previously unmarked and untouched territory and we have always possessed the willingness to expand ourselves personally. And now we are the first wave of our generation born between 1945 and 1964 to be in our 60s and again we are the leaders of the pack.
I really hope to know you all personally soon and I have to think like me there is a group of you out there that want to step out of the social norm again and flex a little bit of [mature] muscle, and say, “hey I am not headed into the sunset or my golden years” I am heading into the next phase of my life and I still have a touch of that revolutionary spark of mind, body and spirit and I think it is time to fan the flame.
We have already defied the odds in so many areas, so this next plateau is just one more perception to dispel, one more barrier to knock down, one more ceiling to break through and one more way for us to join together to say “hey we are not invisible”. We are viable in our wisdom, our knowledge and our evolutionary vision.
We are not the granny stereotype. We are stylish, youthful in looks and attitude and just sassy and confident enough to shout it out and show it off.
So with all that said, I hope you will join me and my guest contributors on Platinum Boomer for updates in mind, body, spirit and style. And together we will begin to explore the evolution of the Platinum Boomer Revolution.
