It's not true. You can teach an old dog new tricks.
I knew early on in life that my career as a professional swimmer was a pipe dream when I hadn't learned to swim by my freshman year in college.
Likewise, I knew I wasn't meant to be a professional cheerleader when I never mastered a flip or cartwheel.
I'm too old to take on a few careers--I need to leave those to a younger generation.
But not so with writing.
I was blessed this week to hear from several people who were dipping their toe into the writer's occupation. One asked me if she was too old to try.
NEVER. You are never too old to write to get published. As long as you can keep up with some of the technology required and are willing to learn the process--the dream is yours to take.
I ask you today. What are you waiting for? You have years ahead of you to share what God has laid on your heart. You have opportunities waiting to be discovered. You have a career waiting to be grasped.
I'm 54 this year. Haven't I filled that time with experiences? Experiences that some other person on this earth might just find enjoyable?
The clock is ticking.
