Most things are possible if we’ve got enough nerve to buck up and throw ourselves fully into the challenge. ✨

Thanks to the life lessons that come with age, much of our grit is based on a foundation of experience. Our self-assurance for many of our decisions is honed from our prior experiences both positive and negative. Our confidence reflects a mature temperament that either we can do it—or we can figure it out if it doesn’t go according to plans.  ✨

Although every day brings new tests that present themselves in any number of ways, this is not our first rodeo. ✨

The pricelessness of all of our years of experience is what makes us incredibly valuable to any work, volunteer or other situation that requires critical thinking. Those who have hung on, been bucked and still taken the bull by the horns are more equipped to climb into the saddle.  ✨

Embrace your confidence and determination and be sure to share it with others in any situation. You’re ready for the ride. As John Wayne famously said: “Courage is being scared to death and saddling up anyway!” ✨
