I remember wanting to have a trainer to get fit. Well, it was outside my budget, so I studied Personal training, got my certification, got fit, found a new career, met a lot of fabulous people. Changed my life.
I remember being in a dead end job, treated poorly and going nowhere. Quit, went back to school. . . went back to school again, new career, changed my life.
All along this journey called my life, these goals and working toward them has changed me. I've gone from an angry, hopeless young woman, to a happy, empowered mature woman.
It hasn't always been easy along the way, but life changing. So worth the effort. From where I sit today, not only in a job I love, getting paid well, happy and fulfilled, but hopeful. Hopeful for the future, because I know in my heart, if I need to, want to dream to change, I can.
One thing leads to another in this life. What you put into it, is what you get out of it. If you find yourself in a bad situation, it is possible to make it better. All it takes is the courage to take the first step. The days, weeks, months and years will pass no matter what you do or do not do.
I find if so sad and frustrating watching people stay in the same old pits, year after year. Whining about how hard life is, how broke, sick, sad, lonely. . .they are, when they haven't done one thing to make it better.
If I'm 57 years old and I took one class a semester from the time I'm say, 30 I could have at least an associates degree. I would also have developed likes and dislikes, direction, friendships, purpose, ideas and so much more.
On the other hand if I spent those 27 years looking for a meal ticket, a free ride or a handout, I likely, would have developed, laziness, frustration, disappointment, depression, illness, stress and so much more.
Do the math, moving up, moving down it's all in our hands. Our life is what we make of it and it's never too late to change. Whether your 21 and starting out or 57 and moving on, you have the power to change your life.
Fantasizing the freedom to re-invent myself at my pleasure! WOO HOO
