I’m here to tell you that your age shouldn’t get in the way of your creativity and the life you want to live! Recently, in a Facebook group a woman asked if it was too late for her to make a change in her life because she’s at an age where she already has two children.
FORGET ABOUT IT
Of course, my response is a definitive no! Age is just a number and it’s never too late to follow your dreams. Sometimes I don’t even remember how old I am. I’m getting wiser with age (that’s a given), but that’s really the result of my experiences.
I stay youthful because age is just a number to me. I’m so happy to be able to share and express the creativity inside of me through photography; in a way that also creates a positive change in the lives of women and men.
When I decided to quit my engineering job in exchange for a life of creativity, freedom, and pursuit of connection with people, I did so for myself. Any woman, no matter her age, can go out and accomplish whatever she puts her mind to. If she wants to be a photographer, painter, crafter, or designer then she just has to work her butt off. It’ll be a contradiction between how easy and how difficult it is.
This article was written to simply answer the question of whether it’s too late to let your creativity out and live your dreams. The simple answer is: No!
