Spunky Old Broads Day is a holiday where we celebrate women who are age 50 and older, who don't want to get old quietly, and are “interested in living a regret-free life”.
History of Spunky Old Broads Day
Dr. Gayle Carson (the founder of the holiday), a life coach and advisor to CEOs as well as entrepreneurial managers around the world, who primarily focuses on helping older women in particular, thought that using the words spunky, old, and broad all had negative connotations, and had decided to put them together to create something positive, coming up with Spunky Old Broads (SOBs) day.
Ways to Celebrate Spunky Old Broads Day
As an elderly woman, there is a lot you can do to learn how to improve your life going forward. You can start by listening to one of Dr. Gayle Carson’s radio shows or explore her free articles and videos.
If you are a woman over 50, you can spend the day living life to the absolute fullest. Get out of the house and refuse to be quiet for the day, make yourself known or remembered. Reinvigorate yourself to have a load of spunkiness and maybe do something you've never done before. If you aren't a woman, or a woman who is not over 50, you can celebrate by thinking of all the “spunky old broads” you know of, and celebrate them.
This holiday can bring people together by showing appreciation to the older women in our lives. Without them, many would be surprised by how different our lives would be, and this holiday brings our love for them together as friends and family.
