Surfing at 40!
At what point does a little voice in your head say “I’m too old…”
Too old for what? To lose weight, change career, be fit, take up a new sport, hobby or other interest?
How often have we heard it said “It’s hard to lose weight when you reach a certain age.”
Is this really true?
It can be “hard” to lose weight in your 20s and 30s too! And even as a child now, weight loss and obesity is a major issue. Changing career, moving home, ending a relationship, starting a new relationship…. all these and more can be “hard” at 40 or at any age!
Reality is that change is possible at any age. The determining factor is not the age we are at, it’s your mindset.
On Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour this morning I heard a fantastic and inspiring story of a woman who learnt to surf at 40!
Wilma Johnson (known as MamaSurf) is truly an inspiration for women who want to start something new and may not feel confident in themselves or their abilities; on the show this morning Wilma told how she had kept going even though she considered herself to be the worst person ever to learn to surf and after 6 months of commitment she finally got it!! And she continues to surf regularly today!
With the right mindset, determination and commitment our abilities are endless! If a mid-life makeover is what you want, do it!
Be clear about what you want to achieve and you can make it your reality, you can make it happen!
Whether you choose to do it alone or work closely with a life coach, make your life what you want it to be!
