Encouragement for the day

~Never too Old~

“You are never too old to set another goal

or dream a new dream.”

C.S. Lewis

At the young of age of 20, I married and started my family with my husband. The dream in my heart was to have a family of my own. God not only saw fit to bring my dream to fruition, but he gave me the greatest husband a woman could ever dream of having along with three phenomenal children who are now adults. The one thing I let go of at that time was a college education. I didn’t give it a second thought for another 21 years. Then at the age of 41, I saw a movie many are familiar with called The Bucket List and at the very top of my list was earning a college degree. Not because I planned on kicking the bucket anytime soon, but because I saw the idea of a bucket list as a great opportunity to write down goals and get them accomplished. I write this blog today at the age of 45 and can share with you that I have now completed 4 years of education that will grant me a well-earned bachelor’s degree in a few short weeks. The years may pass quickly, but never let anyone tell you that you are too old to accomplish anything that you set your mind to. If you are reading this, I challenge you to create a Bucket List of goals and dreams. I caution you with your priorities. Don’t let it be the sole thing you focus on or let it become unimportant. Instead, give it the proper place in your life and plan on smiling at every opportunity you have to check another item off of the list you have created.

The years may pass quickly, but never let anyone tell you that you are too old to accomplish anything that you set your mind to. If you are reading this, I challenge you to create a “Bucket List” of goals and dreams. Then set about to check them off of your list. Don’t let it be the sole thing you focus on or let it become unimportant. Instead, give it the proper place in your life and plan on smiling at every opportunity you have to check another item off the list. Remember, age is just a number!
