I graduated, started working in tax compliance and have continued to work in roles which use accounting as a basis. In my early thirties, I discovered property investing and to my surprise, I found that I loved everything to do with real estate and property. I could spend every day of the week inspecting properties. In my late thirties, I rediscovered my love of writing and have now published my book. I have also found meditation to be a great tool to relax your mind and have completed a course in teaching meditation. Throughout my life, I have continued to work in financial type positions while exploring other interests. I am not alone in realising that it is never too late to learn something new.
Maria a friend of mine, is in the middle of her nursing degree. In her early thirties she found herself divorced with two young children. Her career as a graphic designer was not inspiring her anymore so she decided to fulfil her dream of being a nurse. She loves her studies and brings a wealth of life experience to her new career. It is never too late to follow a new path in life.
Gone are the days where you decide on one career and stick to it for the rest of your life. Today we can fit a few careers in our life time or perform a few at the same time. We are only limited by our own beliefs. When I think back on how confused and worried I was when I nineteen I have to laugh. I would now tell that nineteen year old (and her parents) to stop putting pressure on herself and to just go with the flow of life. There are no such things as mistakes because every experience teaches us something. It helps us grow into the person we are today and life will all work out in the end.
I have received some positive feedback on my book such as the large font. When finalising the publication of my book I specifically asked for a large font so that people could pick it up and read it at any time. There is no need to find your glasses in order to peruse the book. The book is available in soft cover and in an E-book format on Amazon and other online bookstores. Hope that you enjoy it and find it useful and interesting.
Have a great week.
