By now you probably know–the First Lady got bangs! But do you know why she made the big change? Well, Rachael Ray asked her that very question in an interview. Mrs. Obama’s answer: “This is my mid-life crisis.”
More power to you Mrs. O, but why does it have to be a crisis? Why can’t it just be a hunger for change? I prefer to think of this instinct to shake things up to be a mid-life attitude, not a crisis. Like Patti LaBelle says, “Oo Oo, Oo Oo, Oo, I got a new attitude!”
Here are 13 things you can do to get yourself a new attitude; beginning, end and mid-life.
New things are scary. But so is anything in life worth doing.
A New Outlook
Take some time to reflect upon your past to inform your future.
Take A New Road
Have you ever gotten off the freeway a stop early and traveled a new path? Discover something new within your World. Go left instead of right, shake up your routine, and see what you bump into.
A New Ride
It doesn't have to be new to be new to you. Get a new ride and change your view.
A New Look
You don't have to be the First Lady to get a new look. And you don't have to cut your hair to spruce your do. A box of color can can give you flexibility without locking you in.
A New Body
As we get older our bodies change. We can accept it, or challenge it. Either way we need to make peace with it.
A New Outfit
What better way to make peace with your body than dress it up a bit.
Sometimes to see the World differently you just need a new pair of eyes.
A New Design
Rearrange your furniture. Try a new spread. Add some throw pillows. A change to your environment can be refreshing.
A New Companion
Who are you keeping company with?
A New Job
No more time to waste. Identify your passion and find a way for it to sustain you.
A New Recipe
Awaken your senses by tantalizing your taste buds.
Life is a journey best traveled in the company of others. Best of all, you are never to old to make a new friend.
A New Home
Find a new home for your new life.
