Age – a simple word that seems to carry so much weight!
“I’m I too old to pursue a degree?” “Can I really learn that dance I’ve always wanted to?” “I have too much responsibility at this stage of my life to go after my dreams.”
Those are just a few of the thoughts we ponder over when wondering how our age will impact those goals we’re yet to achieve.
While others attempt to achieve New Year’s resolutions or general plans for their lives, you may find yourself stuck on what you perceive to be limitations, such as your age. Don’t let this stop you!
Know that your life experience is a treasure trove of knowledge and understanding that has prepared you to take on the challenges that will come with pursuing your dreams.
Most of all, think about your satisfaction with your life.
Will you be happy knowing that you did not go after those goals that you’ve had for such a long time or will you be miserable thinking that you never even tried? Let this be you’re guide knowing that once you decide to pursue that goal your age will not stop you.
Find inspiration from the countless number of people who didn’t let their age limit them from pursuing big goals and instead took the advise of C. S. Lewis:
“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.”
