Too Old…

Interesting how suddenly something pops up that starts your mind spinning in circles, pondering about what you just read… It was a post about feeling too old to start certain things. Too old because that person hit 50. That woman hit 50.

I’m not far off of the big 5. But I don’t feel like I’m too old. Nobody should.

Nobody should feel too old to try to achieve dreams they had for years. Nobody should be too old to chase after dreams they just only started having. Nobody should feel too old to pursue them. Nobody should feel too old to live their life to the fullest. Nobody should feel too old to do what makes them truly happy, even if that means changing career. Nobody should feel too old to make a difference even if they turn 100. Nobody should feel too old to focus on what’s really important to them.

I recently read something that I really liked and suits this post perfectly: “Right now is the oldest you’ve ever been and the youngest you’ll ever be.”

So I wonder: What are we all waiting for? Why are we so hesitant to do what we think would make us truly happy? If not now then when? And why not now? Why not start something new now? Why not chase your dreams now? Why always wait for the perfect day that might never come because frankly there is never a perfect moment for change.

There are always a thousand reasons why you should not change things. But deep in your heart you know you have to. Because you know it’s not right.

Do it! Don’t wait. Because you never know if tomorrow will actually come. And maybe you might just miss your chance if you keep waiting for a better day to make it happen…

  1. Totally agree! I am 54 and a Senior at the University of Texas. I will graduate next Spring with my Bachelor’s degree and I will be 55! 55!! Going back to school has been wonderful. I have enjoyed it so much. I have to admit I do stop and think about how old I am and there are those who question my sanity…lol! But you are never too old to pursue a dream!! 😉

  2. I love this! I’m in my mid-thirties, and a couple of years ago, I was just sort of like “This is it. This is just how my life is going to be… I’m going to be fat, and single, and that’s it, because I’m thirty, and that’s how it’s been…” But I started making changes in myself last year – started dropping weight, adjusting my attitude, etc. I literally feel like an entirely different human being than I was a year ago – when I thought it was too late.

    NEVER too late. I want to continue to evolve and get better for a very long time!

    • See!!! It’s too late when you give up on everything. But if you chase what you want you can always get there! Well done and keep it up 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻


  3. I love this post. I recently turned 35 and I am surprised by the amount of people who have casually mentioned “Oh you are too old for ______.” When did 35 become old? When did 50 become old? Heck – I know some super young 80-year-olds who I hope to emulate when I get older.

  4. I completely agree with you. I just read an article the other day that talked about some of the most famous artists, authors, scholars and inventors and most of them didn’t get into the field where they excelled at until they were much older in life. You can do anything you set your mind to, no matter your age!

  5. You go and just do whatever the hell you want! I go by my mother’s example; to celebrate her 50th birthday, she decided to go to Mt Everest base camp – trekking on her own for two weeks. So there 😀
