I used to be the one who was the encourager to all those who have lost their dreams/passion.  I would tell people that no matter what your age it is never too late to pursue your dreams.  Of course there are certain exceptions, such as if you are 60 years old and always wanted to be a pro football player I think your window of opportunity was closed many years ago, but you can still follow your passion.  You could start a business that specializes in football items or something else along those lines.  If you always wanted to sing, paint, learn to play the piano, ect., there is no time like now to follow your dream.  Well, I turn 49 in August and I feel like my life is about over and that I am getting too old to do anything.  I mean, where is that coming from?  I looked at going back to school, but then thought about what age I was going to be when I graduated and thought who would hire me then?  I decided not to go to school for other reasons, one of being I really did not want to, but when I look at my other options I feel like I have just waited too long.  I mean really, where is cheerleader Michelle of old.  The one that told everyone that you should never give up on your dream.  The one that said to find your passion and work towards it.  I am the one who now is talking myself out of doing my passion because I feel I am getting too old or there is no one out there that would buy my stuff anyway.  Geez, I think I need to start listening to my own advice.  People talk about the fear of failure, well I think I have the fear of success.  Maybe it is time to step back and look at what I really want to do and go for it.   If you are reading this, maybe you need to do the same thing…or maybe not – LOL.  Till next time.

A friend of mine was looking for an old high school friend that they have not heard from in years.  They joined one of those social sites and after a lot of searching actually found several old school friends.  In particular, they found someone that they had not been able to find, even though they had been looking.  They were so excited and was so happy to hear the person was doing well.  The problem was the person they found is not the person they lost years ago.  The older version has massive baggage and just does not resemble the person they remembered.  This got me to thinking are there certain people in your past that are best to leave lost, especially when you were kids and now many years have past?  I don’t care how good a person’s life has been they should still be quite different than when you knew them back then.  I mean, if a person is now in their 50s hopefully they have quit partying every night, racing their car in illegal races, or whatever stupid thing they did as a kid.  If they are still doing that type of stuff they either need their head examined or are probably not a good person to be around anyway.  If they are a normal adult though life has a way of changing you, making you grow up and not having much of a resemblance of the younger you.  I am glad I am different than the teenager I was.  I was horribly shy, had no self-esteem, and at times probably was not the greatest person to be around.  The years have been both kind and hard, but they have truly shaped me into the strong, independent woman I am now with a hubbie of over 30 years, three grown kids, who have actually got their lives somewhat in order, and people do seem to like to be around.  I don’t know, maybe sometimes we are better off with the image in our head of an old friend than the new flawed version, but who am I to say?  Till next time…

Just seems like life got in the way of my rambling.  There was plenty going on for me to ramble about, but just didn’t figure anyone wanted to hear about me being sick for over a week, tearing up my bad knee after having a rolling chair roll out from under me (long, sad story – LOL), and just working all the time at a job I really do not like, as in I am getting to the point I hate my work, which is a terrible thing when that is what you do with the majority of your time.  I am going to get better at posting on this blog thing, as I actually started getting some hits, but then I went AWOL.  Well, better get back to work so till next time…
