It's Never Too Late!
ï¿½ï¿½You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.ï¿½ ~ C.S. Lewis
Like many of you, at this time of year, I find myself anticipating 2015 and wondering what the year holds for me. This year even more so as I will be 50 at the end of 2015. I always thought that by now, I would have travelled most of the world, be financially stable, have a home and family of my own and be thinking of an early retirement. ï¿½
While I donï¿½t think that my dreams of long ago are unrealistic, over 2014 I came to realize that maybe they were just not in the cards for me. ï¿½I have to be honest, at this point, I spent a little bit of time being angry at this. ï¿½Then, I realized I could continue to be angry or move on and just accept that my journey is a different one, and, I am fortunate to have the ability to create new dreams and still have more than enough time to achieve them. ï¿½
I took a personal life inventory and realized that I am blessed now with a great many skills that I didnï¿½t have when I had my initial dreams. ï¿½What that means is that now, I not only have the ability to set a goal or to dream, but, also can put some action behind them. ï¿½I am also at a point in my life where the quality of my life is very important. ï¿½I realize that everything happens exactly as it should and when it is meant to be.
I have also made peace with the fact that there was nothing wrong with taking the scenic drive to get to this point. ï¿½This way, not only am I now ready for my dreams to come true, but also, have the strength required to maintain them.
So now, I would like to throw out a challenge to all of my clients, family, friends and fellow BodyTalkers. ï¿½We are at the beginning of 2015 and you can make this year anything that you want. ï¿½Take a look at your dreams. ï¿½What changes and actions do you need to make to achieve them? ï¿½Do you need to change them completely? ï¿½ Make this year about taking some steps ï¿½ even if they are only baby steps ï¿½ to moving toward achieving all that you want out of your life.
Have a Great New Year!
