40 IS NOT THE END OF THE ROAD


“I always tell my kids if you lay down, people will step over you. But if you keep scrambling, if you keep going, someone will always, always give you a hand. Always. But you gotta keep dancing, you gotta keep your feet moving.”
When I turned 35 I felt like I had hit a point in my life where I was done worrying about dieting, done playing by everyone else’s rules and trying to fit into the mold of what other people felt I should be.  It was not an esteem issue but an acceptance of me. 


Hitting 40 I realized that the world was still my oyster without the baggage, we carry from our 20’s and 30’s.  I am now 45 and I still feel like that because anything is possible. 


I am going to school full-time writing my blog, taking care of my family finding antiques and I know that achieving my goals are only around the corner.  There is an end in sight. 


At this point in life, many of us are sending our kids off to college, and finding an empty nest.  That is not an all-bad thing; life is about the changes we go through.  There are many people who have accomplished major things after 40 including my great uncle Orie Steele   was a world famous motor cross hill climb champion, who notably won most of his races in his 30’s and 40’s.
Satchel Paige was a right-handed pitcher and was the oldest rookie to play Major League Baseball at the age of 42.

Morgan Freeman, Tommy Lee Jones, Steve Carell, Albert Einstein, Bonnie Rait, and Julia Child every one of these people did not find their success until after the age of 40.
Whatever you do or want to do with your life take a deep breath and follow that dream.  It may sound silly, people may say you’re nuts, but when you look inside of yourself  remember we each only have one lifetime to live, one chance to follow our dreams and be truly happy in life. It is far more important that you try then to sit on the side and watch life pass you by because you are playing it safe.  


Take the leap and live each day as if it were your last. 

Its More then Just a Dream

As a recently married 46 year old I am in the process of finishing my degree. Working to take care of my family and live my life.Blogging, working, writing, and chugging along like most of us.  Who am I ? I am you, I am me, I am your mother, friend, the best and worst that we each have inside of us. I am a different perspective and find myself fascinated by the interesting moments in life.
