In exactly 7 months I will be 40 years old, but this is a question I first asked myself when I was 36.
I didn’t start to wonder if I were too old to blog because I was closer to 40 than 30. I started to ask myself this question because I came across a blogging contest that I thought I would be perfect for only to realize that it was only open to women under 35.
Last year I saw an Instagram post from Launch Pad Publishing that has stuck with me ever since. The graphic read, “Write like everybody’s reading.” And in the caption, Launch Pad Publishing stated, “Enough of the ‘dance like nobody’s watching’ business… Write like EVERYBODY’S reading and maybe they will.”
July is here which means we’re halfway through this dumpster fire of a year. Like the rest of the world, I’m dealing with the emotional stress of living in a society plagued by two pandemics – COVID-19 and racism. And on top of that, I’m battling breast cancer.
As much as I want to cancel 2020, I can’t. So, I must find a way to survive it and perhaps even thrive in it instead.
