Call Us Mothers of Reinvention

Fab Over Fifty women escape stifling situations, shun mediocrity and resist the status quo.  We’re not too keen about negativity either. We do what it takes to move up and on. We are adventurers, conquerors, change agents.

Many of us married far too young, divorced after years and now live with “significant others.” Jeanne from Carmel, CA, even married and divorced the same man twice (in her early and late twenties.)

We started in one career, stayed in it for decades, then decided we had enough and switched gears. Bridget from New York was a successful TV executive who realized she was “burned out” in her fifties. She didn’t stick it out. She went back to school and earned the college diploma she always wanted. Now she’s working towards her Master’s Degree and teaching at Columbia University.

We didn’t exercise much in our twenties or thirties. When we learned exercise was good, we turned ourselves into aerobic, weight-lifting enthusiasts.

We smoked like there was no tomorrow.   When we learned it was bad, we gave it up.

We got degrees in history and became banking executives, morphed from wives and mothers into saavy saleswomen, and turned passions for cooking, baking and crafts into big businesses.

We’re went from nurturing mothers to caregiving daughters.

    wound up here Call Us Mothers of Reinvention | Fab Over Fifty Blog.
    And I do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright. Is it simply me or does it seem like a few of these responses come across as if they are written by brain dead individuals? 😛 And, if you are posting at additional places, I’d like
    to keep up with everything new you have to post.
