If you think you’re too old to pursue your dreams, think again, friends. A teary-eyed Tamar Braxton told the Soul Train Awards audience those exact words, while accepting the an award (she snatched three of ’em). After thanking her family and camp, she explained:

I just really wanna leave you guys this note. I never thought in my life, that I would be here. And the only reason is that because I almost gave up on myself and I just wanna let you guys know. No matter want you wanna be, no matter who you wanna be, don’t give up on you. It’s possible. I’m 36-years-old and I’m proud of it…and I don’t give a damn if I was 56, she was NOT finna stop. Point blank and the period.
