You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream – C.S. Lewis
Sometimes you read about a 70-year old getting a driver’s license, a 80-year old graduating at university, a 55-year old changing his too-stressed job for something he had always dreamt of doing, a young family leaving everything and everyone behind to start a new life on the other side of the world,…
I admire these people. They’ve got the courage to change something they weren’t happy about. It often takes a lot of guts to do so. People will think they’re mad to leave their safe surroundings, the certainty of a good job and change all this for an uncertain future. But the people who dare to change probably put a lot of thought in what they’re about to do. It probably isn’t just a whim… and actually it often turns out fantastically for these people, these dare-devils.
I’m someone who wouldn’t dare to take such life-changing actions. But then I think this quote is not just about changing big things like your job or the country where you live. This quote is also about smaller things, things that aren’t perhaps that important for somebody else, but mean a great deal for yourself.
For me personally that would be my blog…. now this might not be such a big thing in other people’s eyes but to me it is ever so important. I put a lot of thought into it. I didn’t just start this blog overnight. It is something I love doing and I can commit myself 100% to it. It is something I can be proud of. I set goals, I plan posts, I write texts, I try new things, do new stuff, visit different places, meet new people.
Everything I do now, I think ‘can I use this for my blog ?’. This blog was a dream I had for some time… so 44 years old or not… I had the courage to start. I didn’t care what others might think about it. And actually… it turns out to be something I am proud of. And it certainly is something I love doing!
Do you have goals, dreams ? Do you have things you want to achieve ? Remember… you’re never too old to do so… I dare you!
