  5. I love your post. I think many people have second or third careers these days. Hopefully, everyone can get a chance to do something they love even if it isn't the first time around.

  6. Doing anything creative was very much frowned upon by educators when I grew up. I didn't even know that I had talent in that area until I was into my late 30's. Now I spend all day doing what I love. I dye! It's my 3rd career, and I think I'm the luckiest person in the world. I dye a range of hand threads, fabrics, and, of course all sorts for myself. My new career has even taken me onto the TV screen. How amazing is that....

  16. I co-own a business with my hubby, and we have often had setbacks and told each other, "Well, we need to re-invent ourselves" but your outlook is a refreshing change on that. It makes a lot of sense! Thanks for sharing an inspiring post....I was a little distracted by the gorgeous bags and inserts! LOL
