🌼🌼Don’t worry about where you should have been🌼🌼

The month of May is my birthday month and it’s year forty, yeah for me, I’m celebrating all month, well that was the plan but,,,,,,,,. Hey I’m not even going to complain about not being able to go out and celebrate, I am just grateful that I have the ability to celebrate another year.

It is so easy to use age as a defining metric to measure what you should have accomplished already. This is a feeling I know all too well. I can not tell you how many times I beat myself up about where I should be in my career by now. Hey, you need to resist that urge to do so. All you are doing when you add this timeline to your life is adding more stress and pressure for yourself. You are not running out of time, there is no timetable or timeline on where you should be at this stage ( age) in your life. You are not falling behind, your success can not be rushed, there is no timeline, do life at your own pace.

Instead of worrying about where you should be, or what you should have by now, keep your focus on creating your very own vision and staying in motion to get to where you really want to go. When it comes on to your goals, it’s very important that you are patient and do not ever ( ever) compare yourself to no one else. As I said before do life at your own pace. There is absolutely no time limit on when you should do what. I remember in college at age 25 ( at that time I was thinking I was late) I had this very sweet class mate who was in her sixties or more, she had hearing issues and other age related problems but, she was there. It doesn’t matter what age you are, you can still create the life that you want.

Stop worrying about where you should have been. Be patient with yourself and trust yourself enough to know that you will get to where you want in due time. It really doesn’t matter how old you are, you can still create new goals, new visions, new dreams and work towards it. Forget about your age, whether you are tuning 20, 30, 40, 50 or even 60 you can still get it.

I love you for reading
