Success can happen graphic

Lately, I’ve been hearing quite a few people say that they are getting too old to be pursuing their dreams. But success can happen at any age, right? I started to question my own journey of fulfilling all the magnanimous dreams in my head. Am I too old? Have I lost my chance? Is it past my prime?

Then I thought: NO! It can’t be! Maybe I haven’t reached A-List red carpet status yet, but goddamn if I am gonna quit now. I have continue to go for it or die trying!

“But WHY?” you might ask me. “Why go through all that disappointment and rejection and get knocked down time and time again?”

My answer: because I can’t imagine how my life would be if I was no longer creating the art that fills my soul with so much joy.

Listen, I chose a career that has a high risk of failure, where the odds are completely stacked against me, and where there is a massive possibility that I may never “make it”. But whether your dream is to be an Academy Award winning actress or to travel the world or find the love of your life, that dream is VALID and has the chance to come true if thinking about it lights you up with joy. If thinking about your wildest dream still puts a smile on your face, then don’t ever give up on it. Get out there. Take some inspired action. Believe in your heart that — come hell or high water — you’re gonna make it happen.

Too often, we get told that we have to achieve our massive success by the time we are 21. We are inundated with images of these young celebrities achieving all their fame and fortune at such a young age. Here’s the thing: You are not past your prime.


F*ck the lies and false standards that society places upon us. Your dreams CAN come true!


Stop for a moment today and celebrate all that you have achieved thus far. Smell the roses. Notice and take in all the beauty and wonderful gifts that are already in your life. You’ve got a lot going for you. You’ve got what it takes to rise!
