In life, we are sometimes told that we have a limited amount of time to get things done. Once we are past a certain age, they say motherhood slips further and further from our fingers. Heck, at 35, if we get pregnant, we are considered to be in the high risk category. In fact, some doctors would call it a geriatric pregnancy. That is definitely not something they tell you during all those feminist rallies, when they are talking about rights to choose and all of that. They should be talking more about the weight of decisions and that every choice we make help to create the life we eventually end up living, but that is a tale for another day. The bottom line, here, is that life is what you make of it.
You can become a mother at 50, if you want to, just adopt, or become a foster parent, there are plenty of kids who need healthy, safe homes and you could be the difference maker in a child’s life. Or, if you have enough money, you could get a surrogate. The choices are endless and it is all about perspective, having a positive attitude, and knowing that life is a wonderful topsy turvy experience.
No matter what you have gone through, what your background is, you can pivot. You do not have to keep taking the path you have been taking for years. Instead, reinvent yourself, find a new hobby, learn a new skill, the world is our oyster, if we let it. And if we do a little research, we find that Jennifer Lopez might be the queen of this subject. She has reinvented herself so many times. She started out as a backup dancer, then became a chart-topping pop singer, an award-winning actress, director and an entrepreneur who is making waves in business and entertainment. She is the quintessential woman who has taken life by the horns and made it what she wanted it to be. Here she goes through her guide on how to reinvent yourself, and if you are smart, you will take notes!
