Age Is Just A Number – Written by Tammy

The universe doesn’t have any limits on how it will speak to you.  A billboard may have a particular phrase on it that you needed to read. Maybe you’ll think of someone and then hours later run into them at the grocery store.

The intelligence of the universe is boundless. It’s always connected to you and seeking to strengthen its connection with you. You just never know where the insight or lesson is going to come from.

For Tammy her message came through her nine year old son. His innocent conversation actually helped his mother change the direction of her life.

I’ve always thought of my son as an old soul. Despite his age, he’s always said things I’ve needed to hear and has come to me for a hug every time I’ve needed one without me having to ask. We have a very special bond and connection.

It was a few months back (he was 9 at the time), when he came in my room and asked if we could cuddle and have one of our talks. I of course said yes because I love the fact that he’s still my little boy who loves to cuddle with me and I adore our talks.

After he hopped into bed I asked what he would like to talk about. He went quiet and I could tell he was thinking about the perfect subject. A few moments later he says, what do you want to be when you grow up? Surprised by his question, I giggled and paused for a min. What a question. The funny part is, I knew he wasn’t trying to be funny. He was completely genuine.

Before I replied he said, I know you’re a grown up now but what else do you want to do(I’m currently a manager at Michaels)? I said, well I guess there are other things I would really love to do and I’m not too old to go for any of them. Then, my loving and encouraging son says to me, you’re not too old. I know you’re getting older, but you can still do other things no matter how old you are. You can go back to school and have a different career if you want. I know you can.

He actually said, I know you can. That was it. That is what I needed to hear and it came from my 9 year old son. He completely changed my current view and it has encouraged me to reevaluate my life, present and future. I truly believe it was meant to be. He was supposed to say that to me and in return make me look at where I am and where I want to be. That’s so refreshing and exciting to know that I can end this chapter and start the next one as soon as I’m ready. I have the power to do this.

Before he left the room I gave him a big hug and said thank you. He has no idea that his question has helped change the course of my life. I’m going to switch paths, which will bring me towards my true happiness.

I’m not too old to do this. We all move at different stages in life and it just so happens that my path, my career and my purpose is to be realized, pursued and embraced in my 30’s and that’s OK.

Whatever has happened in the past has brought me to where I am. I sometimes can’t believe the things I’ve been through and what I was dealt in the past but I did it. There’s a reason for that. I’m stronger because of it. My children need me, so giving up and just settling is not the answer. There’s a plan for me and I’m going to do my best to to stay on the tracks and not derail.

It’s my time to shine, grow, focus and embrace and share my purpose. I’m very excited about this!
