Embracing Change at Any Age

I am a passionate advocate for personal growth and development. In a world that celebrates youth and fast-paced success stories, I believe that life’s most remarkable transformations can happen at any age.

I’ll share my journey of self-discovery and positive change and how I’ve drawn inspiration from my own life and wisdom to embrace change, no matter where I am.

What I share on here is rooted in my own life experiences. I’ve navigated through challenging valleys and conquered towering peaks. Naturally, this leads to the question: what forms the foundation of my knowledge? Everything I share is born from my personal experiences. By saying this, I acknowledge that what has worked for me may not necessarily work for you, but perhaps I can provide inspiration along your own journey.

The last drastic transformation was when I was 40, but now, at 48, I don’t believe that was the last time.


Whether you’re in your twenties, forties, or sixties, the principles of change remain the same. I’ve completely shaken up my life multiple times, started anew, and made significant changes. The last drastic transformation was when I was 40, but now, at 48, I don’t believe that was the last time. By understanding the power of change, facing fears and doubts head-on, setting clear goals, and seeking support, I paved my way for a transformative journey. 

I wholeheartedly embrace self-discovery, persistence, and resilience. I refuse to be discouraged by setbacks or failures. I firmly believe that change is a lifelong process. By adopting a few key principles, I’ve rewritten my life’s story multiple times, ultimately creating a fulfilling, purpose-driven existence.

Understanding the Power of Change

Change is a constant in life, and my own teachings have illuminated the path to personal growth. I’ve learned that taking charge of change is essential to lead a fulfilling life. It’s never too late for me to redefine my path and set new goals.

Facing Fear and Doubt

I’ve often grappled with fear and doubt when confronted with change. My wisdom has encouraged me to acknowledge these feelings but not let them control my decisions. I’ve found that the most significant breakthroughs occur when I step outside my comfort zone.

Self-Discovery at Any Age

I’ve underscored that life is a journey of self-discovery, and it’s never too late to learn more about myself. I’ve reflected on my passions, strengths, and values, gaining a deeper understanding of what I truly want out of life. Self-awareness, as I emphasize, is the first step toward creating a life that aligns with my authentic self.

Setting Goals and Taking Action

No matter my age, I’ve realized that setting clear and achievable goals is crucial. I’ve broken down my goals into smaller, manageable steps, just as I advocate. Taking action every day, even if it’s just a small step, has propelled me closer to my aspirations.

Building a Support System

Change can be challenging, but I’ve shown that it’s easier with a support system in place. I’ve sought out like-minded individuals who share my goals and dreams. Connecting with friends, mentors, or support groups has helped me stay motivated and accountable.


Embracing Failure as a Stepping Stone

My reminders that failure is a natural part of the journey towards change have resonated deeply with me. Instead of letting failure discourage me, I’ve embraced it as a valuable learning opportunity. Every setback has brought me lessons that propel me forward.

Persistence and Resilience

My story of resilience and determination has inspired me to persist in my pursuit of change, regardless of my age. I’ve learned to embrace challenges as opportunities to grow stronger and more resilient.

Forgive and let go

One of the most challenging yet profoundly effective lessons I’ve learned on my journey is the importance of forgiveness and letting go. Forgiving people and letting go of the past have been essential practices for my emotional well-being and personal growth. Clinging to grudges and past grievances used to weigh me down, leading to unnecessary stress and negative emotions. However, the moment I made the choice to forgive, I experienced a profound release from the burden of anger and resentment. It was as if I had shed the heavy emotional baggage that had previously hindered my progress.

Furthermore, forgiveness is a catalyst for healing and reconciliation. It opens the door to repairing damaged relationships and cultivating healthier connections with others. By liberating myself from the shackles of the past, I’ve created space for new experiences and opportunities, unburdened by the weight of old wounds. This act of self-care has empowered me to move forward with greater peace, resilience, and a more positive outlook on life. Ultimately, forgiveness is a precious gift we offer not only to others but also to ourselves, a gift that fosters personal growth and emotional well-being.

In conclusion

I’ve proven to myself that my age is no excuse for not changing my life, the power to transform and shape my destiny always lies within me. I faced my fears head-on, and taken action to create a my future. I’ve realized that it’s never too late to rewrite my life’s narrative and create a fulfilling, purpose-driven existence.

So, I’ll continue to take that first step and persevere on my transformation journey, inspired by my own wisdom and unwavering belief in the potential for change at any age.

Is it too late to make significant changes in my life if I’m older?

It’s never too late to make positive changes. Age should not be a limiting factor. Embrace the idea that personal growth and transformation can happen at any stage of life. Start by setting clear goals and taking consistent actions towards them.

How do I start making positive changes in my life?

Begin by setting clear and achievable goals, breaking them into manageable steps, and taking action consistently. Surround yourself with a supportive environment and seek guidance from mentors or resources that align with your goals.

How can I overcome fear and resistance when making life changes?

Facing fear and resistance is a common challenge. Practice acknowledging your fears, understanding their origins, and reframing them as opportunities for growth. Use techniques like visualization, affirmations, and the support of a trusted network to help you overcome these obstacles.

How can I maintain motivation and stay on track during the change process?

To maintain motivation, stay connected to your “why” – the reasons behind your desire for change. Regularly review your goals, celebrate small victories, and stay accountable through support systems, such as friends, mentors, or support groups. Visualizing the benefits of your changes can also help keep you on track.

What if I fail in my pursuit of change? How do I handle setbacks?

Failure and setbacks are a natural part of the change process. Instead of seeing them as failures, view them as valuable learning experiences. Analyze what went wrong, adjust your approach, and keep moving forward with resilience and determination. Remember that success often comes after overcoming challenges.

  1. So fun and inspirational to follow you. Great style and plenty and most importantly words of wisdom. Mother of 3 boys 2 now at uni so started MadebyMET a bespoke fashion brand. You are right we are the directors and producers of our life.

  2. Dear Dee,
    I’ve been following you and love your style and how totally “yourself” you are.

    Like you, I believe that “it’s never too late.”

    After an award-winning career as an advertising Creative Director, I am now on a mission to “rebrand aging.” To re-frame it as a process of Becoming More of Who We Are. Not Less of What We Were.

    I feel called to share this link to a 5-minute video called “Breaking Out of The Age Cage” which I created to inspire women to change the stories we tell ourselves about aging: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UZdwqtcN1dE&t=4s

    P.S. I’m the one who commented on your IG post that I had my first book published and my first solo art show at 65. (And I’m just getting started.)


  3. hey!
    I started following you on Instagram because of your good taste! But of course, our exterior reflects a lot of what we have on the inside.
    Reading your blog now, I can only be grateful for having the opportunity to discover you.
    I’m 57 years old and I identify a lot with you. Change is present at all ages, and it is fundamental for our evolution, and not for the meaning of this life.
    You are very beautiful inside and out too! And inspiring!
    Adriana Buzollo
