I started to write about memories, but thought it would be to mauldlin. I'm going to start with a question. Can we be productive or achieve goals after fifty? Oh, speaking of after fifty I suppose that could be maudlin, too - but we won't go there.
To answer my question wether we can achieve goals after fifty the answer is "Yes." Often times our lives don't take the paths we've planned out. There are many twists and turns in the journey of life, but it can be a surprise where God leads us.
I'd always loved to write but never had the chance. When my children got older I took the opportunity to follow a dream I'd had for many years. After a several years and some hard work I'm now a published author of two books. My first one was published when I was fifty-seven. If I let myself think too much on how old I already am then it would be easy to just give up or quit. I don't want to do either. So for now I am looking forward to more goals being accomplished during our "mature" years. Don't give up - we are never too old to accomplish a goal!
