Finding the courage to try something new!


One of the main lessons I’ve learned on my journey through life is that when I find the courage to follow my heart it always works out for the best. Over eight years ago I realised that I wasn’t cut out for administration duties and worked better when dealing with customers.
By finding the courage to leave secure employment and take a risk setting up Twoheartsmeet dating agency I embraced a completely different career path. By going past the fear of becoming self-employed and showing courage to follow my heart I opened myself up to the possibility of doing something I loved while providing a valuable service to so many people.
The ripple effect this decision has had is huge because now there are several people engaged, married or in long term relationships, people who would not otherwise have met each other if I had not set up Twoheartsmeet.
So if there’s something you’re longing to do, just listen to your heart and go for it! You are never too old to learn something new! Maybe you would like to learn a new language, or how to play a musical instrument or how to use the internet, but fear is holding you back? There are so many evening classes available nowadays that we are spoilt for choice.
Or maybe you want to be part of a loving couple? Why not join a dating agency or other ways of meeting new people such as Toastmasters or a hill walking club? Remember, fortune favours the brave!
