Your Age, Relationship and Education are Not Valid Excuses for Not Being Successful and Happy

Don’t tell me why you are unhappy with your life, tell me what you are doing to create happiness in your life.

I get really frustrated when I hear people talk about what they would have done with their life, if they could go back in time.

Quit telling me what you would have done in school, go apply and get it done.

Quit telling me how bad your relationship is and how it anchors you from success, either put that energy into repairing it or leave it.

Quit telling me you are too old to start fresh on something new. Starting a new project is what keeps us young.

I got my life guarding certification when I was 28 and I was ten years older than the instructor and fifteen years older than most of the students in the class. Was it embarrassing? Nope. Initially, it felt like it, but once I started the course, I felt fine. I got it done.

My dad learned how to ski in his late fifties. He jumped on that bunny hill and took no mercy and figured out the ropes.

My mom become a hot yoga enthusiast in her forties and she can still keep up with me anytime we go together.

A dear friend of mine left a long-term relationship in their fifties and is enjoying this new chapter of life with no regrets.

If you are unhappy in some aspect of your life, quit complaining about it and do something about it.

So many people seem to be slogging through their day to day, just to get to the weekend or retirement or something else tragic like that. Live for each day. Find value and purpose in each day. Do not waste your life with what you could have done, go out and do it.

I write about issues that are near and dear to my heart, with the hope that my stories, experiences, and struggles may empower others:
