I know this is the second time I am visiting this subject, but here it is:
I am T-Minus 10 days until I am no longer “just 40”. I will then be a woman “in her forties”! UGH! I am still not sure why this bothers me. How am I going to deal with this “getting old fear”? Worrying that I will run out of time before I become GREAT? Thinking “Is this REALLY how a ‘woman in her forties’ should act?” Wondering, “Did I wait to late to reach for this or that particular goal?”
Well…I have decided to remove all negatives from my vocabulary. The word “CAN’T” does not even EXIST! I may try and fall short of success, but there is no failure in doing MY BEST! I will be the healthiest, fittest, focused, most goal-oriented, hard working, and determined 41 year-old former “fat-chick” you will ever find! I will demand Excellence of myself!
I saw a Tweet from female MMA fighter, Rhonda Rowsey, yesterday where she mention how as you get older, you need to drive faster because you have less time to get where you are going. HHMMMM!!! OK…so in the vehicle of life, it is time to put the “pedal to the metal” so to speak. I have a LOT to accomplish in this life. I may have taken the slow boat to “Motivated” by way of “Rock Bottom”, but I am here now!
As Mr Jackson of http://www.rulershipnow.com says……
It will take a lot of hard work and determination, but I WILL continue to reach for my goal and beyond!
