My fiance and I were discussing our future last night. I told him that I want to finish up my degree in Healthcare Admin, so I re enrolled back in school and of course I want to have another child. He told me that he wants to move to California to start a bakery. He hasn’t done anything to act on this, nor does he have any type of game plan set
I am very supportive of him but (to myself) I dont see the likelihood of this happening. He’s 35 Im 27.
Do any of you feel that there there is an age cut off limit to realistically make your dreams become real?

I think the cut off is when you’re dead! You’re never too old to better yourself!

Honestly, in most cases, I don’t really think so. Now if someone wants to have a baby physically,or be a sports star then there might be some issues as one’s body gets older. For something like the bakery, funding might be an issue, but can be overcome. I think it gets more difficult as you get older, but not impossible. I think of people like Grandma Moses who didn’t hear their calling until they are seniors, and I think it’s great!
Sometimes we all just dream or wonder aloud too, which I think is a good thing, as we all try to improve ourselves at least in our minds and question the status quo. I’m glad it seems that you two support each other.

There’s no cut-off age for dreaming but it’s important to dream realistically and take concrete steps towards achieving your goals. My best friend returned to college in her late 40’s, completed her degree and embarked on an entirely new, successful career. Many others have done the same.
The key thing is to understand the difference between just talking about it, like pie in the sky, and actually doing something purposeful and practial to make the dream become a reality.
Age is just a number.

@MrsGrayIndy: I think it’s never to old to dream big if it’s something that’s within the realm of possible. Dreaming of being an actress or a rockstar at 40 with no foot in the door or at 30 deciding to become a pro athlete, not that possible. On the other hand, dreaming of moving and opening your own business at 37, 47, or even 57, is very possible.

My mother started university when she was in her late thirties. She has since completed a second, graduate qualification. She’s 47.
My Future Mother-In-Law is 60. She’s defending her PhD soon.

@MrsGrayIndy: I think so, but it always makes me feel silly when I complain to either of them (frequently!) about my single grad school class :p
