Bette Midler Discusses Her Life Lessons – AARP.

You know you’re a Baby Boomer if you:

a) know who Bette Midler is; and

b) know that she is affectionately called “The Divine Miss M.”

It’s comforting to know that us normal Baby Boomers aren’t the only ones getting older.  Even world-renowned actors and singers fall victim to the passage of time.  Ms. Midler turns 67-years old on December 1, 2012, and I have to say that she looks fabulous in the October/November 2012 issue of AARP Magazine!  Let me provide some additional Baby Boomers that should ring a bell with you:

  • Tom Cruise 50-years old;
  • Madonna 54-years old;
  • Jay Leno 62-years old;
  • Meryl Streep 63-years old;
  • Cher 66-years old; and
  • Dustin Hoffman  and Warren Beatty 75-years old.

In the article linked above, Ms. Midler mentions that she came to the realization that, “Life is not your  personal express lane…It doesn’t all have to be about me!”  She also talks about dreams, destiny and deciding what matters.  I like that last point – deciding what matters – because oftentimes I find myself sweating the small stuff and you know what they say, “it’s all small stuff.”
