REGINA BRETT IS MANY THINGS: a breast-cancer survivor; a onetime single parent; one of 11 kids; a two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist for her commentary in “The Plain Dealer,” Ohio’s largest newspaper. And an author, of the bestselling “God Never Blinks: 50 Lessons for Life’s Little Detours,” just out in paperback. In short—she’s a master of reinvention. I was happy to finally “meet” Regina when I appeared on her weekly call-in show recently on WKSU, the Ohio NPR affiliate. The topic: reinventing yourself. Come listen in (and there’s a book giveaway involved…but you’ll have to click over to my book blog first…).
Interesting to hear how you all have reinvented yourselves. I am now 70 years old and my whole life has always been in transition. Going from mother of 6 chilren, moving from NJ to a farm in Ohio, becoming an artist ,to teaching art. Then having my own business and traveling to art shows and selling internationally. Got divorced after 39 years of marriage. Now I work for my son in a recycling company doing office work. I now have 16 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren. Life is always in transition.We must be open as you are to all the changes we face.
Really enjoy your blog everyday. Thank you for sharing.your life stories.
Just read “and I shall find some peace there” and it is amazing.
