Welcome to another episode of the Women in the Middle podcast!
This week’s episode features an interview with someone who made a huge change in her life after her husband died at only 38 years old; she quit her job as a classroom teacher to move back to her hometown after 30 years away. The interview is part of the mini-series, Getting Real with Women in the Middle, where you’re introduced to an amazing woman in the middle who made a big scary decision so that she would be happier in midlife.
Jennifer Mowrer is a woman in the middle. She had a lot to handle after her husband died of cancer at such a young age, on 38 years old. She was only 40 at the time.
Teaching saved her life. Being with kids offered her a lot of positivity and distraction when she needed it most. However, Jen eventually realized that she couldn’t do it anymore. She was in a midlife funk and she needed a change.
She discovered Reiki and started to open her mind to other opportunities. She eventually realized she COULD make a big change and decided to reinvent herself professionally and take a big leap.
Jen decided to quit her job, sell her home, move back home and become an entrepreneur; she doesn’t have any regrets. She’s so much happier now and is totally loving her midlife.
