When I was a little girl, I had dreams of what I wanted to be when I grew up.  When I turned 40 I looked back over my life and wondered what I was going to do with the REST OF IT.  I was unhappy in my job and my marriage.  Menopause was knocking at the door, along with some other health issues and I was flat out miserable day in and day out.

I often wondered how my dad managed to spend more than 40 years on one job and with one, sometimes very difficult, wife.   I'm curious to know if he had given it all up and went in another direction, would he have lived longer than the age of 52.  

To sum it up here, I started meditating and it wasn't long before I saw the answer.  I decided my happiness must start from the inside—out.  I couldn't rely on anyone else to motivate and encourage me.  I had to believe in blind faith.

These days I am joining others who have stepped out of their comfort zones and pursuing their midlife passions.  Are you pursuing YOUR passion?

    • Bev, good question and hopefully many are saying a resounding yes!

      As you know, I’m definitely pursuing my passion, but I must admit, I’m getting kind of tired.  Maybe it’s the menopause.

    • No I am not.  But I hope to be soon.  Overcoming a lot of obstacles is what is holding me back along with fear.  Great topic!

    • Hi Beverly, I am new to the group. I have checked out your Babyboomer group as well. You are one busy woman. I am happy it all involves you pursuing your passions.

      I am currently a work in progress. My passion has always been making others happy and taking care of others. I am now  a travel agent and I love helping others live out their dreams and fantasies. I am working this in a part time capacity currently. However, I look forward to pursuing it full time in the future.  

      I am also a High school special education assistant. I have  found this to be very rewarding as well. I love my schedule as it gives me the flexibility to have the same schedules as my two children . This will be especially handy as we plan  all of the wonderful travel adventures are hearts desire as well.  

      Part of my living my passion involves me sharing my passion with others and letting them know I am here. So this is my  offical notice to one and all. I am here and ready to become your new travel agent . Please feel free to respond for my information.

    • Hi Bev,

      As a life and destiny coach, I constantly tell people that they must truly find what they are passionate about, learn to make a living it at and then they will never work another day of their lives.

      Sometimes if you want to know what your passion is, I would suggest going back to when you were a little girl. What did you play? What was your hobby?  What made you feel truly happy?

      It’s never to late to pursue your passion because your destiny was decided way before you were ever born. All of us take detours along the way, but get on that path and be the best you that you can be!

      In His Service,
      Dest2B Life and Success Coaching
