In my search, I stumbled upon a magazine for the over 40, mature woman, More Magazine. I became an instant fan! It seemed to speak to me in ways that other fashion magazines didn't. It always features a woman on the cover over 40. How refreshing! And it has articles that resonate with my maturing lifestyle. But while they focus on women over 40, I believe that More has value for women all ages.
Well, thanks to beauty/natural hair guru Afrobella, yesterday I attended the More Reinvention Conference as a guest of Eucerin Skin Care. (More to come on skin care.) I had a blast! The speakers were funny, informative, passionate and approachable! They made me take an honest assessment of my life, skin, fashion, body, spirit and even the work that I do around HIV/AIDS. The whole nine yards.
I have already begun taking my work to the next level. I've taken my HIV/AIDS prevention message to the web with an awesome social media campaign and I have no intention of stopping anytime soon. I was inspired by Ambassador Nancy G. Brinker's commitment to Breast Cancer. I will remain on the front lines of HIV/AIDS until I die.
For a woman turning 48 in six days, More Reinvention was just what I needed. I have lived far longer than any doctor could have predicted. I'm going to do the most with my blessing of life... What are you going to do with your blessing?
