50 Years Young with so Much More Still to Achieve!
Hi everyone … I’m writing this latest BLOG on what is a very special day for me and that awesome occasion happens to be my 50th birthday.
I’ve had to contend with some major challenges during my life and there was a time, going back some 7 years ago, when I didn’t think I would achieve this key milestone due to my ongoing battle with anxiety and depression. With that thought at the forefront of my mind, I feel very fortunate and blessed to have just returned from a trip to Europe, where I was able to enjoy early Birthday celebrations with my Mum, Siblings, Friends and Partner.
Yesterday, I was also able to spend some quality time back here in Australia with my two wonderful Daughters and Grandson. My Daughters, Holly and Jemma, are now 21 and 17, respectively, and it’s funny when I think back to when I was that age … the thought of being 50 years old was unimaginable and seemed so very, very, very far away and basically, so old!
They jokingly say that time gets quicker as you get older, but it’s not until you arrive at this key milestone, do you suddenly realise how quickly time does in fact pass by. I feel happier and healthier than I have done for as long as I can remember … 50 is just a number and it really does make me reflect upon my life as a whole and what I’ve achieved thus far.
In addition to being a Father, one of the greatest accomplishments for me has been finding the courage and confidence to be true to myself, and that has also included an increasing openness about my journey with anxiety. By sharing this journey, I hope other anxiety sufferers will realise they are not alone and that includes anybody else who has to contend with other forms of mental health issues as well.
Irrespective, of the daily challenges each and every one of us has to face, the message I want to convey is that we all have the ability to achieve great things in our lives. You can bring greater clarity to the things you want to accomplish by setting, tracking and visualising your personal Goals and Dreams ... that’s why I’ve developed the concept of ‘Manage My Rainbow’ to help you make a real difference in your life by giving you the framework of tools to help you achieve just that.
Remember the acronym for Rainbow – Regular Action Is Now Believing Our Wishes!
With this in mind, don’t forget to follow this link and LOGIN to the website, so you can set, track and Visualise your own personal Goals and Dreams … if you are new to the concept of ‘Manage My Rainbow’, then this link takes you to the SIGNUP page, where you have the ability to set and create as many Goals or Vision Boards as you want for FREE.
Your feedback is encouraged and always appreciated, and if you can help me deliver my message to a wider audience, then please ‘Like’ and/or ‘Share’ my Facebook or Instagram page, or this particular post … it would be awesome and greatly appreciated.
I’m going to close off now, not as someone who is 50 years old, but rather someone who is 50 years young, with a lot more of life ahead of him and with so many more Goals and Dreams still to work towards and achieve.
Enjoy the journey! … until next time!
