31 Days of Writing - Day 1

Day 1 of 30 Days of Writing

“Never put an age limit on your dreams.”

This quote by Dara Torres really resonated with me, especially as my goal I to be ultimately be published.

When I retired 2 years ago after 35 years of teaching, I began to take courses in art and writing. I wrote and I created and enjoyed both.
At times though, the doubts have surfaced and the dreams have seemed too unrealistic. Yet, so many people have dreamed big and achieved goals others doubted.

Dara’s life story is a testament to her dreaming big.
Dara has lead an exceptional life as an Olympic athlete, winning 12 medals in sw3imming, as a commentator and as an author. Her memoir  “Age is Just a Number: Achieve Your Dreams at Any Stage in Your Life” was published in 2009.

She is a wonderful role model and this  collage is dedicated to her. This quote inspires me to hold fast to my dreams and keep moving forward.
