“It is never too late to be what you might have been.” -George Eliot
I’ve talked to a lot of people who say that this is a lot easier to believe when you’re young–that it’s near impossible to believe anything is possible when there appears to be a lot less time left.
But do we ever really know how much time we have? When we’re young, we’re not as conscious of our mortality and the unpredictability of life, but that doesn’t mean we’re immune from unexpected hardships. It just means that we don’t yet know to focus on them.
The truth is that we change our mindset at any time. At any moment, we can focus solely on the experience of today, and decide that we deserve the joy and fulfillment of doing precisely what we want to do.
On any day, we can stop fixating on the ticking clock that we can’t possibly control, and make this day count, regardless of what we’ve done on the days that have passed.
We are the only people who can decide that we are not powerless, and we are the only people who can use our power to make today count.
Who do you want to be today?
