Well, I can firmly attest to being a professional starter- overer! I have started over more time in the past three to four years than I’d like to admit to.
Want to know the secret? You will always go back to what works.
Being in my late 40’s (no shame at all!) I knew I had some decision making to do as far as me and my family’s future was concerned. It’s not easy when you are surrounded bu millionaire YouTubers that are the same age as your oldest kids, but I beg to differ.
Look at it this way, the internet was created by people in our generation! Take that, kids!!
But, and it’s a big BUT, when you are trying to fid your target market later in life, it tends to be tad difficult. At the end of each day, am I happy with I have decided to do? Yes, Hell yes! Why? well, every experience gave me a lesson.
I have learnt what works and what doesn’t. I can’t do it all and you shouldn’t. Do NOT count yourself out of the game.
At 47 I have decided to go back to school. I have decided to reopen my Etsy shop selling planner stickers. I have decided that I want to blog full time. I have decided to relaunch my YouTube channel.
All of the above are scary af, but if I don’t go ahead with my passions then what is it all for? If you have been fighting yourself, I am here to tell you to stop. Just stop the madness and go towards your dreams.
Admittingly, I have made some poor choices, well, haven’t we all?! Look, none of us are as perfect as the filter we try to cover our lives with. However, we are flawed but can be flawless in going towards our goals and dreams.
What a legacy to leave and what an example to set for our kids, that we can achieve any goal, we can conquer and dream no matter what age, situation or setback we may have.
Do you have goals and dreams you feel you are too old to accomplish?
Story: My uncle told my husband and me that he always wanted to learn how to play the piano. Unfortunately, He passed away last year without learning. Don’t let passions go away with you. Now I want to learn how to play, just for him….RIP uncle Clifford
