Is it possible to change your life at 40? Yes and I am a striking example. I changed my life at 46 and never regretted the choice I made! Do you want to know how to do it? Read here!
Are you unhappy with your job but you fear that you are doomed? Here is what you should do to change your life at 40!
Well, I am the proven proof that all this is absolutely possible, you just need to prepare your new life in time and build a very solid plan B.
Obviously being a fashion blogger I explain everything with an outfit, in this case by 24.25 Clothing. A beautiful purple blouse and an amazing skirt with lots of slit and feathers. A perfect look even for a black tie dress code!
How to change your life at 40 and over?
Here, let’s underline the word “beyond” because I made this change when I was 47 when many people think that life is practically over.
As far as I am concerned, this is unacceptable: I cannot in the least think that life ends on the threshold of 50, either from a private point of view or from a working point of view. Yet society is the way it has always labeled us: old and useless.
Instead I think differently: at my age I acquired such an experience and self-awareness that I am happy with what I have, without stressing myself looking for the impossible.
As soon as I finished university I was devoured by ambition, I wanted to be the best researcher, then the best manager, then the best director, in short I wanted to be a number one. And that’s good because it helped me evolve.
I saw many colleagues close to the threshold of 50 who were put aside …. in my favor since I was young and rampant. And I’ve never given it much thought.
Then my son was born and I turned 40 and I started looking at the situation differently. Soon I would have become one of those 50 years old …. what to do?
As I continued my career path, I was simultaneously working on a solid B plan.
Being a fashion influencer over 40 could be an alternative job?
To change your life at 40, as I said, you need to build an alternative livelihood.
Always go gingerly: either you are sure you have a source of income comparable to what you leave behind or else you have to grit your teeth and hold on to the work you don’t love.
Having opened the blog in 2008, at a time when this sector was not yet developed, I was able to ride the trend of fashion blogs from the beginning and this allowed me to have an alternative source of income that at the time was distributed among the people who contributed to the blog.
In addition, I had decided to make a real estate investment that could have given me a fixed annuity.
So, at the age of 47, at the height of my career, I had a very solid plan B that allowed me to say bye bye to my business life without any doubts.
And before they put me in a basement that, frankly, I could never have endured!
And I’m a mom!
