Queen of Your Own Life

Your Time is Now

She had waited long enough. Her time was now. All she had to do was say, "Yes." - Queenisms™

She had waited long enough. Her time was now. All she had to do was say, “Yes.” – Queenisms™

The truth is that whatever your age, your time is now. When you’re in your twenties, your time is now. You have the opportunity to take risks, make choices, change your mind, try again, laugh out loud and so much more. In your sixties all those choices still exist. We sometimes fall into the mistaken belief that we’re too old to try something new or that daring to be adventurous will rock the boat and make others uncomfortable. Well tough. What if you’d been concerned that learning to walk would be too disruptive to a baby or that learning to drive a car would be too adventurous for a young teen? Your whole family would be sitting in your house now, waiting for you to do everything for them. You had the courage to push others to take leaps of faith and stand on their own. Isn’t it time to do the same for whatever secret longing fills your own heart? This past year, we wanted to learn to use PhotoShop so we could create even more detailed and beautiful Queenisms like this one with the vintage images we’ve been collecting for years. Let me tell you that was not an easy journey. But now, as our skill grow, we are positively thrilled to have acquired a new skill that helps us feel creative. And, we’re getting better and better if we do say so ourselves. It is never too late to try something new. Be a lifelong learner and more importantly be a lifelong dreamer.

    I have been caring for my mother and, now, she will be going into a nursing home. I feel like it is my time to get out there, find a life of my own. I am getting zero support from my family. I am being told ,” What do you think – you can start again at your age?” I am 58 and hate when people talk to me like I am stupid and helpless. I am being told to move into an apartment in their house because I can’t just be on my own. I repeat I AM 58 YEARS OLD!!! I need encouraging, positive , go get ’em words from friends and family. You are always there for me. Thanks.

    I am 62, I recently started a new life away from the city where I grew up, I thought I was to old to start something new. But it can be done just go for it. I encourage Allison to just go for it. It takes such a long time and may seem forever but it can be done. Positive thinking

    You, Queen Barb, are a wise woman and thank you so much for taking the time to encourage Allison! You rock.

    You are performing such a beautiful act right now, Queen Allison. You are caring for your mother and helping to usher her into the next phase of her life, which may be frightening to her and yet you have her back. It would be the great to have the support of your family and it’s possible they think they are supporting you by offering you an apartment in their home. But no matter where you live, you are your own woman and having a safe place to lay your head at night could open doors for you. What would you love to do once Mom is safely cared for in a nursing home and you’re out from under the burden of running a house? Travel, pursue a hobby, get a job, take a nap? There is so much to ask yourself. And, the apartment doesn’t have to be a permanent solution. Perhaps you can think of it as a transitional safety net? What do you think?
