Positivity leaps from the pages of Marlo Thomas’ new book, “It Ain’t Over . . . Till It’s Over: Reinventing Your Life–and Realizing Your Dreams—Anytime, at Any Age.” I sat down with my favorite cup of tea and opened the book provided to me by The Brand Connection to review. Three hours later I was still reading. The stories of the sixty powerful women who have made the decision to go for their dreams can’t help but inspire.
Inspiration is exactly what I need at this point in my life journey. I am not sure if I am on the right path or doing what I am supposed to do. I have been searching for my purpose for several years now and am still scattered. Marlo gathered stories that give me hope as I read. And hope is a good thing.
The book says it is a compilation of stories from Marlo’s website on The Huffington Post. Although I was unable to find these stories on the website, it is a good site for women.
The book is easy to read and is delivered in short story vignettes. You can put it down and return to read another story or two. I would call it a great summer vacation read. It is also a good read for busy women who don’t have the time to read a book in one or two sittings. It is a feel good book about reinvention and finding success. Reinvention is a path many walk every day. I have waked it several times myself.
Overcoming obstacles seems to be the main theme of the book. When I want to work through an idea, I find that I am reminded of one of the women from the book. I can reflect back on their story and perhaps learn from some of their lessons of courage and determination.
Most of the women in the book seemed to have the money to follow their dreams. Very few, if any, really struggled with financial obstacles to their dreams. This was the only flaw I felt as I read. I would have loved to see more stories of women who did not have the means and/or education to accomplish their dreams, yet made them happen.
I walked away with an ‘achieving your dream is entirely possible’ feeling.
