It has come to my attention recently that when people hit 40 they seem to stop dreaming, and hoping. What is up with that? As I am almost 44 and still living single since 2008, my dreams are more alive today than they were years ago. I hear friends giving up on having children; on traveling the world; and the one that worries me the most, on love. It would be incredibly easy to just give up when it seems life hasn’t turned out the way you expected, but nothing easy is ever worth it, right? It is those things gained after struggle, distance, time, blood, sweat and tears that mean the most to us, because we were challenged to get them; they were hard not easy. Still being the die hard romantic who believes she will get swept off her feet by her Knight in Shining Armor keeps me young, and keeps me from getting too bogged down in the in’s and out’s of dating after 40, for in my heart I believe that kind of take your breath away kind of love still exists for me. Losing sight of your dreams and stopping to hope means the outlook is no longer about the glass being half full, more looking at it as half empty, which can often lead down a long, dark road of depression, which none of us want to travel. So smile, take a deep breath and remember those dreams of a younger you, grab them and have hope!
