You Are Never Too Old To Chase Your Dreams

dreams are worth it mom college wife dreams are real
When I was 16 years old, I was able to intern at a local college. It was an internship through my high school, and it was one of the best things that could have happened to me. It all started when I applied for the program so I could try to intern at an accounting firm, which is where I thought I would work one day as an accountant, but because I had no work experience they passed me up. Thankfully my teacher at the time lined me up another interview with the staff at our local college.  I was selected, and I started in July of my junior year. I worked at this college through high school and then completed my Associates Degree also while working there. In total, I worked there for four and a half years. For a first job, that is a pretty lengthy amount of job. 
I am so thankful for that experience as it completely changed my life in more ways than one. I met my best friend who led me to my husband and the life experiences I learned there can’t be replaced.
One of the many things I learned was that it doesn’t matter your age, you are never too old to start again. While I was working there we saw our fair share of young fresh faced out of high school kids coming in to enroll, but the ones I enjoyed were always the older life experienced people.  Anyone from 18 to 70 could be seen on our campus.  
If you ever had time to talk to them you would hear stories of divorces and starting over, someone fulfilling a lifelong dream or someone who had retired and was now wanting to find something to fill their time. The main idea behind all of these is that you are never too old to start a new life, or to do something you have always wanted to achieve.
Many times I’ve heard people say the phrase, “I’m too old to do that.” But that’s not true. You can achieve anything, and sometimes being mature in age can help you gain your dream faster because you have acquired more knowledge since you were a fresh-faced baby right out of high school. Now, you can support yourself on the journey or better yet now you know exactly what you want out of life.  
Having confidence in yourself is the first step, and knowing that age is nothing more than a number can help in that. Don’t let your age be the reason you let your dreams go.  Hold on to those dreams, fight for those dreams, and realize that you can achieve those dreams if you just put your mind to it.

What is something that you have always wanted to achieve but haven’t yet? Are you ready to try it? Why or why not? Let me know below!

  2. Thank you for this! I know I'm not that old, but that's one of the items on my list of excuses for staying stagnant at work. I needed this today!

  3. I'm 28 and trying to completely switch careers. It's a challenge, but I'm still young right? I think I can do it. I wonder if I'll change my mind when I get older. You're right - confidence is a lot of it. I think as long as I keep that up, I can learn all the new tricks :)

  4. My dream job is to be a sideline analyst for a televised sporting event. I used to work in collegiate athletics, so I got awful close. It's true, though, you're never too old to try the next thing!
