Do you have a dream within? Is it something you have wanted to do all your life or is it something you have just recently discovered?

Take a moment to grab a piece of paper and write the first thing that comes into your head when I ask, “If you could do anything you wanted to do and knew you couldn’t fail, what would you do?” Go on, write it down. What was the first thing that came to your mind? Was it a lifetime dream, one you had since you were a little girl? Did your answer surprise you and you thought, “Where did that come from?” Or did you go blank and nothing comes to mind, but you know deep down inside there is a dream waiting to surface?

Does the thought of beginning to live this dream create excitement within you or does it send shivers up your spine, make your hands sweat and your heart palpitate? Over the years, we have grown accustomed to knowing what our future (or even the next day) holds. We like to feel comfortable and secure. For many of us, we fear change and the unknown. What has stopped you from pursuing this dream?

Have you fallen into the ‘when excuse’? – When the children are older; When I have more money; When I have more time; When the mortgage is paid off, lose weight, am healthier …………………… and the list goes on and on.

I am here to tell you that WHEN is NOW! As a woman over 50, now is the time to pursue your dream. You are a mature woman with a lifetime (or at least half a lifetime) of amazing experiences and life education. If you don’t start now, when will you start? Next year, the following year or will it be in 5 or 10 years or never? Before you know it, you will be joining the club of regrets whose motto is “If only I had…” You can finish the sentence.

Don’t let your dream die within you or with you. Do something about creating and living your dream today. When is NOW!
