You can’t help getting older. It’s how life works. The only way to not get older is to die. So get older, we must. But getting older doesn’t mean getting old.

As my friend Cheri said, “Don’t let age stop you, you are as young as you are ever going to be right now.” Her life is a good example. Her first career was as a hairdresser. Then, in her 40s, she became a Kayak instructor and traveled around the world to teach. In her 50s, she became a nurse. It’s never too late.

If you want to learn more about Cheri or other women who’ve started over in the second half of their lives, check out the Starting Over Interviews.

If you want to try something new or want/need to start over, then check out this Quiz that will help you determine what type of new things person you are: a beginner, an explorer, or an adventurer. The quiz includes some guidance on things you can try no matter your level.

If your goal in 2024 is to try new things or start over, you’ll find helpful information in both of these posts.
