How to Reinvent Your Life at Any Age

How to Reinvent Your Life at Any Age

Faye Goldberg Miller, my mother, is a force of nature. At 81 years old, my mom’s infectious laugh turns heads. She works out several times a week and has been known to curse like a sailor, especially if you cut her off in traffic. Her wardrobe and sense of humor are fierce. Throughout my entire life, she has passed along pearls of wisdom, like: you can forgive others, but don’t forget; health comes first; and shoes always matter.
