My Response

Don't worry so much, it will all work out.
See, didn't I tell you not to worry.

You thought you were getting too old to create real change.
You're still making change, you always will be, it's who you are.

Remember how frightened you were of letting go of the life you had?
Aren't you glad you took the leap?

It's OK to want to follow your passion.
You've inspired others to do the same.

Listen to what your heart and your core tells you, not anything less.
You did what you had to do and look how much better you are for it.
