Age Is Never a Barrier In Fulfilling Your Dreams

Dara Torres (pictured), five-time Olympian, mother of a 2-year-old daughter (also pictured) and the oldest member of the U.S. Olympic Swimming Team, recently answered an 'age' question with simple confidence: “I’d be 41. When you hit the water, the water doesn’t know what age you are.”
Torres admits she returned home thrilled with her effort, and she also realizes what it means for middle aged America. “If it helps anyone else out there who is in their middle-aged years, and they put off something they thought they couldn’t do because they were too old or maybe thought that, because they have children, they can’t balance what they want to do and be a parent, then I’m absolutely thrilled,” she says.
Read more about Torres here and how she inspires people of all ages to strive toward their personal best.

It's never too late to fulfill your dream and start a business. Think of it this way, "When you strike out on your own, the world won't know what age you are!"

Wow, you look great you obviously understand mothers, mom or mother are more than housewives, dating, marriage, divorce, children, adoption, fostering, consumerism, weight loss, pregnancy, school, politics, cooking or work they are love, support, nurturing, honor, awards, acknowledgement and family so nominate your mother or motherly figure at http://www.mother-of-the-year.com today and help make religion, life, peace, world and love more loving. Have a great day.

I am 52 and rode my bike in a 100 mile century last year. Dana Torres is an inspiration that we can do anything we work and train for. I have another century planned for 2010.

At fiftysomething I am on to career #3. The whole journey of starting something new at this juncture keeps me feeling younger!
