It’s Never Too Late

You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream  – Aristotle

What is your cherished dream or life changing achievement?

We will showcase stories of people who have made major changes to their lives or achieved long held dreams, however small or large.  Please fill in the contact form below to tell us you story. This might include retraining to change careers, studying for a degree in later life, relocating to a new  country, taking up an amazing hobby, writing a book or starting a business. The project is not necessarily the important factor; we will also celebrate peoples’ enterprise, courage and determination.  You might make it funny, you might make it sad, but most of all make it yours.

We will highlight inspirational stories from a woman who celebrated her 60th year by hiking in the Pyrenees, a high flying lawyer who became a landscape gardener, also a couple diagnosed with ME & MS who travelled around the world to visit their first grandchild and long lost cousins. Your achievement might be of a much more personal nature: taking an aeroplane flight, riding a horse or visiting London, for the first time; rediscovering friends or family after many years, losing weight or changing your image.

Within each area of interest we will also feature information, support and where possible an article from an expert or celebrity. For the best articles we will be happy to include links to your web or blog site.

We are looking for between 200 and 3,000 words with one or several pictures which will ideally include what inspired you to do it, some of the joys, the struggles, any help you received on the way(please include contact details of any relevant organisation where possible)  and how you feel about it now.:

I hope you will join us and I look forward to hearing from you.


If you have delayed gratification and made a major change later in life, achieved a goal that you set yourself a long time ago, or you have had a long held dream that you have finally realised (however small) and you would like your story to be included on this page then please send us your story using the contact form in the side bar.
