Never give up, no matter how tough the circumstance. Those are birthing pains you are going through. You are about to give birth to something great, something wonderful. What a joy you will receive when you give birth to that project you have been diligently creating. Press on and breakthrough.
I want you to know that you are important. You matter more than maybe you know. Your smile. Your words. Your experiences. The way you view the world. You are uniquely qualified to make a difference in this world. Only you can be you, so do not rob us. Make an impact this week.
There were many days after I turned 40 that I thought life had passed me by. I saw folks around me succeeding and I thought "What about me?". Then one day the light bulb in my brain switched to "on". I looked at my life differently. I started to go after my dreams and denounced my fears and held to my faith.
I took on scary challenges and I was successful after taking them on. I learned how to swim and skydive, I trained and took on long-distance cycling, I hiked volcanoes, I traveled to places around the world I could only dream about going to in the past, I became a National Geographic published photographer, I left a job and started two businesses, etc and the list continues to grow. At 54, I feel like I have just begun to scratch the surface of living my dreams. It's never too late, never. Dream big and live life like you mean it. You can do this.
