“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream”
– C. S. Lewis
Have you hit the big 4-0 yet?
Or the big 5-0?
Or even the big 6-0?
These birthdays can mess with your head in so many ways – right? Yet in the many years that I have worked with women, I’ve discovered that these birthdays carry a significance that goes far beyond the number and celebration of another year around the sun.
These birthdays are the ones that make you stop and take stock of your life – and the result of doing that can be absolutely life changing.
Are you where you want to be?
Are you ready to chase a new dream, or maybe dust off an old one that got pushed to the side all of those years where you were busy raising children, working your 9-5 and rushing around trying to make ends meet?
So many women choose to reinvent themselves at midlife – I certainly did! It is a thrilling, frightening and challenging adventure all at the same time, however it can feel lonely at times too. Here you are wanting to bring your big audacious dream to life, when others out there are looking at you like you are mad.
Why don’t you just get a real job now that the kids are off your hands?
Why don’t you slow down and stop being so driven?
Why on earth are you wanting to start over in an entirely different field to where you’ve worked all of these years?
You’re not 21 you know!
I’ve personally heard every single one of those lines and have wasted far too much of my life worried about what people were thinking about me.
Until I stopped – and that’s when the magic started to happen.
If you are nervously toying with the idea to embark on a new path to bring your dream business to life, be encouraged by this fact: One of the fastest growing groups of Entrepreneurs are midlife women.
Yep – there is an army of midlife women right across the globe, daring to dream and daring to bring those dreams to life.
Isn’t that exciting?
And are you one of them?
I’m going to be sharing more of my story over the next little while as I know that it will encourage you. Quite frankly, if this introverted midlifer can bring her dream of a purposeful business to life – despite stuffing things up many times over – trust me honey, so can you!
Until next time….
