Why are we told it’s too late to start over? Why is there so much fear around starting again? Is it our own fear or fear ingrained into us as children?
When I left Australia at 30 years old so many people said I “should” be starting a family, settling down and buying a house. I shouldn’t be buying a one way ticket to London and starting from the beginning in a city far away from home.
If I listened to them, I would have never met my husband. If I listened to them I wouldn’t have travelled to 65 countries. If I listened to them, I wouldn’t have created Silou London + The Self Care Space. If I listened to them I wouldn’t have trained as a yoga teacher + somatic therapist. If I listened to them, I wouldn’t have grown into the person I am today.
I choose to surround myself with friends that have had the courage to start over.
My mum at 63 retrained as a health coach.
My biz partner has just started a 6 year degree at 38 whilst bringing up 3 kids.
My oldest sister is retraining as an executive coach at the age of 43.
So just in case you don’t have a circle of people to encourage your bold moves- I’m here to remind you it’s never too late to start over. It does take sacrifices and it’s definitely not the “easy” route that’s for sure.
You have to give up your free time to learn, grow and create whilst still paying bills with whatever you can.
You give up weekends and weeknights to study and do assignments.
You let go of the parts of you that no longer serve you. Friendships, relationships, partnerships fall away as you bloom into the new version of you.
It’s no mean feat that’s for sure. I think we spend too much energy focusing on “but what if I fail.”
I’d love for you to shift your focus and spend the time thinking “but what if I fly, and soar and succeed beyond my wildest dreams?”
Moving to Bali this year was another huge decision to start over. But I’m here for it. I’m here for growth. I’m here for the challenge and I’m here for the evolution.
Life is short. Take the risk!
