Being the beginning of the year, google was overwhelmed with inspirational workout memes and my social media was flooded with getting in shape quotes. Obviously as I sit here in yoga pants, which have never seen a yoga class, my unhealthy breakfast burrito and my coffee I don’t connect with any of that. I want to write content that means something to me and be something I can truly connect with.
The new year brings new dreams and goals for most of us and I want to take this month to help keep you connected to your resolutions. So I hope this quote helps you stay on track no matter your age.
“You are never to old to set another goal or dream another dream.” -C.S.Lewis
Dreaming is what I have been doing for a while. I dreamed of raising my daughter without going to work. I dreamed of building an at home empire to help support my family. I dreamed of living debt free, facing my fears, and doing what it takes to make it in this life. I dreamed of actually living instead of just surviving. Sadly, with these dreams, at 28 years old, I doubt. I have told myself I am too old to start over, too old to reach my goals successfully and that my dreams are a bit silly.
I was looking up events in the area I live in to see about some networking opportunities. That’s when I came across a makeup tutorial event being thrown by a 25-year-old, who owns her own business and has her own makeup line. I for a quick second felt like a failure, she was younger than me and had accomplished so much more. But it’s not our age that is the problem, it’s our thought process. I’m sure she had doubts when reaching her goals but her dream was bigger than those doubts and she kept going.
When doubts pop into our mind, we have to learn to hush the negative noise, and rewire our way of thinking. Nobody likes failing, but if you do not try, you’ll never know what you could have accomplished. I am still re-wiring my way of thinking, and working for myself is harder than ever since I don’t have upper management to hand me “gold stars” when I do a good job. So other resources have to be found to keep me inspired. When I feel down I look to this
Remember to always make your passion bigger than your excuses and continue to set new goals.
