Inspirational Message To Every Woman Over 50 Do you still dream or have you given up your dreams to the ghosts of yesteryears? Yesterday, whilst out shopping in my local grocery store, I saw one of my early yoga students. It was great to see *June and as we chatted and enquired about each other’s life, June mentioned she wished she had followed her childhood dreams and felt it was too late. At 61 June life had past her by and it was too late to regain her sparkle and dinner confidence of early 30s. NO!!!! It isn’t. In the middle of the store, I encouraged June to remember how she felt...
