Aging is an incredible gift.

Despite society’s attempts to convince us otherwise, we know that every year is a gift. We can see that aging brings many surprising and wonderful benefits.
Over the years, we’ve asked hundreds of women what they love most about the age they are now. And we’ve received hundreds of inspiring replies from Boom Ambassadors, Women of the Pro-age Revolution and all of you.
We scoured your stories to find out… What are the best gifts that come with aging? Here are the top five...

1. You stop comparing yourself to others.

Many Boom women confessed that their 20s and 30s were filled with comparisons between themselves and other women.

[Customer Name Here] says, “I thought I was awful in my 20s, honestly. The standard that I had for myself was so high and I couldn't attain it. So I just felt like I was like a mouse on a treadmill... I couldn't get anywhere with it.

“But now, in my 40s, I really don't worry about it so much because I don't compare any longer. I just worry about myself instead of comparing myself to others.”

We’re conditioned to compete with other women, so it’s no surprise we feel the need to compare ourselves.
But as we age, we let go of those comparisons. We learn to accept and love ourselves. As a result, comparisons and competition slip away.

Sharon, 75, says, “When I was in my 20s, I was always checking myself out, comparing myself to the other girls… I guess it was around the ’70s when my girlfriends and I banded together and we just started talking about how we felt, what our insecurities were, and we were open about it to each other, not trying to be competitive with each other. And from that, we bonded.”

2. Your self-confidence grows.

Do you feel more confident at this age? If so, you’re not alone.

Erica found that aging brought her incredible confidence. “I don’t even feel like the same person I was at 29.

Much happier, healthier, in better shape. Much more comfortable with who I am, like six trillion times more confident. It’s really amazing.”

“When you get older, you get more confident in yourself, and that makes you happier,” says [Customer Name Here]. “I know that when I was in my 20s I picked my body apart…Now I've just kind of embraced the fact that this is me and this is the way I'm gonna be and I'm gonna be really happy.”
For Rosalyn, age 55, that confidence makes her feel sexier than ever before. She says, “There was always something that I held back. As much as I might walk boldly into any room—and I do that and I have done that since I was a kid—that was a facade. Now, it’s kind of for real.”

Deborah agrees. She says, "I think, in my 60s, I know what sexy is and I don't have to try at it. I feel it because I know what it is, and I'm confident about my own self in that skin.”

Of course, self-confidence doesn’t stop with how you look. That confidence affects every area of your life.

3. You get to focus on you again.

Many women don’t have time for hobbies and interests in their 20s and 30s as career and caretaking take center stage. Many women also have less time for exercise and eating well.

But when you reach your 50s, 60s and beyond, life opens up again and you get to focus on what’s most important to you.

Having more time to enjoy life is[Customer Name Here]’s favorite part about getting older. “I didn’t think 62 would be so energetic and feel fun. I have more insight and more perspective. I enjoy life more. I take walks. I swim. I do yoga. I eat really well.”

“Yaa says being older leaves so much more time for travel: “For me, 63 is amazing. I love traveling, so at 63, I've traveled a lot of places. At 23, the only place I traveled to was to work and back. So 63 is amazing.”
