Just taking a break from working at the moment. I got to thinking: if I had my time all over again, what would I do differently, to share with my people to inspire you? I would have listened to my heart. The most important thing I know now? That the things you loved and daydreamed about as a kid, you will still love when you’re 100. If you abandoned those things as so many of us do in the name of financial security, here’s what I can tell you:
Every one of us is born with a unique set of abilities, talents, and passions that, unless we invite them fully into our lives, we’ll always feel like something is missing. Fortunately, our old friends never abandon us; we catch on and change course to include them with some wisdom in more mature years.
I don’t remember when I didn’t love classical music, writing, and poetry. But I went into insurance. Yes, really, an office job. In my 40’s I went back to college and earned my BA in Music at 46. It never stopped calling me. Neither did writing, reading, and teaching. All of that prepared me to do what I do now. To be a mentor for struggling women.
Trust who you are and what you’re made of. You can!
