As we reach our third chapter, many of us realize that we are not as happy and satisfied as we want to be, as we deserve to be. Yet, we are afraid to even think about what we truly want our life to be like. We can’t imagine taking a big leap to a new job or new way of living. But we know that we want something different, something more.
We can start with small, incremental changes. Our journey into our third chapter and beyond is an ever changing and never complete path. Maybe you want a huge change or maybe you just want some things to be different. We can all get started with a first step. As Suzanne Braun Levine says in her book 50 is the New Fifty, “you are not who you were, only older”. We have all grown and evolved over the years. We can now let go of earlier expectations of who we should be or what we should do. We have a lifetime of experience and learning and we have changed along the way. Where do you want to go next? Things will change even if you do nothing. As Peter Drucker said, the best way to predict the future is to create it. What do you want to create? What small step can you do today?
