Huff/Post50 is proud to announce a new series "This Will Be Our Year: 15 Women Over 50 Shaking Things Up In 2015." Last month, our editor-at-large Rita Wilson issued a callout seeking women 50 and older who plan to make a radical change in their lives in 2015. The aim is to create an inspiring initiative that reminds people everywhere that it's never too late to change your life, pursue your passion or prioritize happiness and wellbeing over traditional definitions of success.
We received close to 2,000 submissions from women across the country. After a lengthy review process, we've chosen 15 remarkable women to follow throughout the year as they attempt to shake up their lives. Starting today, we'll be publishing profiles of each woman daily, Monday through Friday, for the next three weeks. To give you a taste of what's to come, here are the 15 women below, with a bit about their goals for the coming year. Just as February gets underway, and you start to lose steam when it comes to your own New Year's resolutions, let these women inspire you to keep going all year long.
Whether it's embarking on a 500-mile hike, finding love on the Internet or having a baby, we plan to follow their progress, tell their stories and become their biggest cheerleaders. Thanks to everyone who submitted an email. Almost all of you would make great bloggers for Huff/Post50!
