Baby Boomer women have spent decades suppressing their own wants and desires, and losing themselves in the expectations and demands of culture, parents, partners, and children, working hard to please and care for almost everyone but themselves. They’ve been misunderstood by marketers, politicians, millenials, most men .. and last but not least, themselves.
The time has come for these strong, beautiful, and fabulous women to discover, reveal, and honor their true selves. The time has come for them to re-expereince life as they’ve known it, and to celebrate life as it can be.
If you’re a Boomer woman in personal crisis needing to reinvent your life, facing divorce, life-threatening illness, financial disaster, or the crushing loneliness after the kids have grown and gone, if you are asking yourself, “Now what?” and fearing that it might be too late for you and your dreams…this book is for you.
The [email protected] Re-Experience
From Dianna Bowes, visionary foundress of Fabulous @ 50, The Fabulous @50 Re-Experience is a living, breathing, sweet and sassy guide to remind you that you’re not alone … and it’s not too late for you to thrive.
~ My Thoughts and Review ~
This author has summed up the thoughts and feelings that many Baby Boomer women feel during mid-life. She shares her experiences, as well as, stories from other women, to formulate ideas on dealing with this new stage of life.
Her question, “What’s Next?” really resonated with me. I struggled with “empty nest syndrome” when my kids moved out. For decades, taking care of them was my main purpose. It took a little time to process everything, but I eventually started my own business and now devote a lot of my time to developing it.
She also talks a lot about accepting and loving yourself (warts and all). She says we are to be grateful for all our experiences, both good and bad, because it is those experiences that build our character and make us who we are today.
I liked this book, it had a lot of thought provoking ideas 🙂

About the Author
Dianna is a shining example of how to get the most out of life as a “seasoned” woman. At a time when most of us look to relax in front of the TV, she is out in our Alberta communities creating a dynasty! And in her “spare time,” she turns her time and talents to family and friends, graphic design, painting, biking, cross-country skiing and fulfilling a host of volunteer commitments. Though Dianna is now a successful entrepreneur and inspiration to many, she had to overcome many barriers to get there. Raised by grandparents in a dysfunctional family, Dianna was shy and lacking in self-confidence as a child and young adult. She married at 20, but tragically her new husband was killed in a explosion within a year. She remarried a few years later and was blessed with two children who are the light of her life. But the marriage was rocky and further eroded Dianna’s self-esteem. A serious health problem (tumour on her vertebrae) in her 40s brought things to a head and the marriage ended. Rather than wallow in despair, Bowes decided to take control of her life. She recreated herself into the woman she always wanted to be by focusing on personal development and coaching. When her 50th birthday was approaching, she started [email protected] (a community for seasoned woman) and has never looked back. Now confident and poised, Bowes is dedicated to helping other women through their life changes and challenges. Bowes has won numerous awards for her work: a 2014 Leader of Tomorrow Award from Business in Edmonton, 2011 YWCA Woman of Distinction Award (Turning Point category) The 2014 New York Stevie Awards in two categories: Women Helping Women (Bronze) and Best Event (Gold). 2015 New York Stevie Award – Top Canadian Entrepreneur (Bronze).
Adaption is a part of life, and we can accept it or fight it. It’s a choice!
