“How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?”
My husband recently called me with this question. He had just finished listening to one of his favorite speakers challenge our thinking about aging and retirement. In fact, he pretty much said…your real age is found within your thinking. If I answered this question, honestly I would say I am in my 40s…remember…feeling 40? Right? I do not feel my age and constantly must remind myself what it is.
Since I turned 50, I have been on a reinvention journey to turn myself around…inside and outside. I also have been re-fashioning my career. Four nights ago was a huge milestone for me…I attended San Antonio Fashion Week as a fashion blogger for the first time…sitting on the front row next to the local newspaper’s fashion writer and our local fashion and style film network.
Though I have been to many runway shows in the last four years, this one was a milestone for me. I am now considered to be a legitimate member of our local Fashion Media and I love it. It is possible to reinvent your life…no matter your age.
When I follow my dreams and pursue my passions, then I am holding up my I MATTER sign. Blogging has opened many doors for me to be able to do just this. I love writing for and encouraging women, and I love covering lifestyle, fashion, and style stories. It is a passion and right now…I am living the dream! Hopefully, one day soon, I will be able to do something like this 24/7.
Doing what I love does keep me young and joyful. Participating in a world filled with young adults also keeps me youthful. Sure, I am usually one of the oldest at the events I cover, but I love the younger fashion bloggers and they seem to respect me (perhaps, they have a good laugh, but I really do not get a sense from them that happens.) I really believe anything is possible no matter our age.
What is your passion? Are you doing something to fill that love deep inside of you? If you did not know your age, how old would you be?
Great questions to ponder and ask ourselves…in order to say…IMATTER!
