In my Monday Boomer U story, I profiled two women who faced serious situations they could not change and decided instead to change themselves. Now they're helping others do the same.
Susie Leonard Weller survived stage 3 colon cancer but uses a permanent colostomy; Peggy Capes faced down alcoholism and debt issues.
When boomers face a divorce, loss of job, death of a loved one or a health issue or other events that make them feel as if their life is falling apart, and nothing they've done before to overcome things seems to work, they still have choices, the women believe.
You can drink, drug, overeat, freeze, withdraw, blame others, blame God.
Or you can decide to take a look at the events that cannot be changed and change yourself and your attitude. Much easier said than done.
These women did it.
