It’s Never Too Late–Jump

The kids are grown, the hubby is starting another chapter in his life and seems to be enjoying it.  You seem to be in the same old rut.  You are still talking to the same people who kept you from reaching your dreams before–Woulda, Coulda and Shoulda.  It’s time to jump.  Jump into that painting career, that writing career, that teaching career, heck even that golfing career and more. It’s time to find other friends.

skydivingWho knows when the parachute will open, but it will.  Let’s all jump and maybe we can make one of those cool designs in the sky like sky divers do while we wait for our parachute to open. Where and when your parachute will open is different for everyone.  Your parachute may open with you donating your paintings to someone, a showing at the local church or maybe a museum.  Success is different for everyone, and as we mature success for us takes on a different meaning.  As women of a certain age Woulda, Shoulda and Coulda are no longer our friends.  We are preparing to jump so that we can make friends with Did, Done and Will.

Remember “thisisyourbestyear”, now Jump!

This is my best year ever, and it can be yours too. When I turned 40, I thought it was the end of life as I knew it. When I turned 50, I knew it was the end. It was the end, the end of that year--nothing more and nothing less. I've retired, gone to another career, started a business, and have kept writing. I've taken classes including glass blowing, swing dancing and so much more. I'm making each year, my best year.
