Too Old to Dream?


        Is there an age limit when it comes to dreaming? Lately, I’ve been thinking about this a lot. I’ve always been a dreamer in every sense of the word, since the very beginning. I just always felt that I was made for more, like God had bigger plans for me. I never could settle, and my inspirations were always women who were moguls. When I saw women who dominated in many fields, I was always inspired. They proved that you can have more than one dream and succeed in all of them. So what happens when you grow older and you’re still not where you want to be. You see your old classmates excelling in their careers and growing their families and you’re still in limbo. You start to think is it time to just hang it up and jump into any job that you can take, even if it makes you miserable. Is there a fine line between childlike dreams and being an adult? I used to look for signs, but honestly you can always interpret things in many ways. If I work on something and it fails, I could look at it as a test to push harder and comeback stronger, or I could see it as a sign that I should stop. I have no idea if I’m just living in a childish dream, or if there’s a reason that this desire burns inside of me with the intensity of a thousand suns. Some say that when you have the burning desire it’s a sign that you are meant for more, and no matter what you do it won’t go away until you accomplish it. How can I let my younger self down? How can I ignore that feeling inside of me? What’s the cut off age? Twenty-seven? Thirty? Thirty-three? Thirty-five? Forty? How long do I have before I have to throw myself in a long drawn out job that leads me empty and unfulfilled? I feel like if I didn’t have student loans the size of Brazil, then maybe I would have more time to dream.

        I’m hoping to have the answers that I need by the time the world gets back to normal. Until then, I’m going to take this time to continue to dream. If you have read my previous posts then you know about my past challenges (and current challenges), that I’ve been doing. I started them to help push me to become a better version of myself in every way possible. I felt like I’ve already learned a lot about myself from doing these self-improving challenges. I got down to the core of what I really wanted, and what to narrow in on. I’m still learning and evolving, but at least I have a little more direction and understanding than I had 4 months ago. I hope that some of you will join me in my current and future challenges. It’s nice to have a support system every now and then, so why not?

I would like to hear from the people who are currently in dream limbo. What are your thoughts? What are your plans? Are you finding it hard to make a decision? Do you feel obligated to let go? Let me know in the comments below! Thanks for stopping by & Have a great weekend! 😊
