I’m in my forties. In my FREAKING FORTIES.
Somewhere, in my murky past, four decades have sped by. I’ve achieved some things – had a reasonable career, bought some property, had a lot of fun – but nothing of any particular note.
So now I’m in my FREAKING FORTIES and I’m changing my life the doubts creep in. On a fairly regular basis.
What makes you think you can make it now when you haven’t so far?
What makes you think anyone is interested in you?
You’re so old. How are you going to be successful at this age? If it was going to happen it would have happened already.
The good news is we finally have a bathroom floor here in our renovation pit, so if I choose to listen to these voices at least I have something clean to lie on in my defeated depression.
The really good news is I just watched this video by Nas Daily, about four people who did change their lives. Including one amazing guy who learned to read aged 52!
So every now again when the doubts get a bit too loud a good video can drown them out.
