In 2008, Joanne Guidoccio retired from teaching Mathematics after 31 years of teaching to pursue her dream of writing. Most of her colleagues, friends and everyone taught she was crazy. Today she has written a novel, published several articles in newspapers, magazines and online. She spent 31 years living another life and was able to switch to a new life after. Who says you can’t have a career switch?
Friends, it is not too late to pursue whatever dream you have. You may have truly lost time, but time is a continuum and there is still enough of it left to fulfill your heart desires. It is not too late to start a new career. It is not too late to start a new relationship. It is not too late to run for that political position. Every dream carries within it the required energy and drive for its fulfillment. Once the dream is conceived and the pursuit commenced, you will find things gradually falling into places. Don’t give up on yourself, it is not too late.
It is better and nobler to die trying rather than carrying the regret of not trying to your grave. The greatest risk in life is to risk nothing. If there is a risk everyone must take, it is the risk of True Living, which is to find and live out your dream. I would rather die in the pursuit of my dream than stay alive in the safety of someone else’s dream. You must not be limited by age, time or circumstances. You are neither too young nor too old to pursue your dream. Jesus started teaching at 12 and started his ministry at 30! Moses started leading Israel at 80!
You are inexcusable friend. Go find your place in life. Live your dream regardless of your age.
God bless us all.
Good morning Africa!
Good morning Nigeria!
