Not too late

I have run into some moms lately who have deep regrets. Regrets about not finishing college, not keeping up their skills, not keeping balance in their lives as they dove headfirst into bringing up kids. And guess what, I get it.

But here I am in this Master's program, almost forty, and I have a lot of great years ahead. We all do.

So for the new year, I am here to say if you still have a goal, you can still find a way to do it. It's harder. You might have to make adjustments or find a new goal. But it's not too late to start doing the thing that is going to bring you joy for the rest of your life.

Also, if that thing is continued focus on your home and family, that's fine, too. But honestly, I have not met very many women who are just interested in one thing. Women create and produce and earn way more than they get credit for. Even when they are not in paying jobs.

So let's embrace it. Let's do what we love. Happy new year.
