Second Chance Essay Contest

This blog was created as a place for adults who have a dream and want to gain inspiration, and encouragement to go after those dreams. No matter what age the dreamer is, the idea that it is never too late... is what keeps us going.  

I love reading about the successes of other adults who have achieved their dreams later in life. Inspiring stories such as these help us all to believe that we can do the same.

Last year I shared my own story of having my dreams deferred, and how I am now working to make my dreams come true. Now it is your turn...

Have you gone after a dream later in your life? Have you gone back to school, started a new business, traveled to a country you always wanted to visit, relocated, gotten healthy? Whatever your dream may be, I want to know what you have done or are doing to make that dream come true!

Tell our readers in an essay of up to 500 words maximum what you have overcome to pursue your dreams. Whether you have already completed your goal, or you have only just begun, please share.

  • 1st prize will be your choice of a $25 gift card to Barnes and Noble, Bestbuy, or Amazon plus the publication of your winning essay on this blog as a featured guest post.
  • 2nd and 3rd place winners will receive publication of their essays on the blog in a shared guest post.
