It’s Never Too Late

Clocks keeping time.

Not too long ago I ran across a quotation that really inspired me.

It was “It is never too late to be what you might have been.” by George Elliot.

I have no idea why that resonated with me so much. Maybe because my hubby has been talking lately about things he didn’t do.

I wrote the quote down to show to him too. I’m not sure what he made of it. But to me…it is saying…don’t be sorry for what you weren’t…just start being whatever it is you want to be.

If you wanted to be a writer…but never got around to it…well it isn’t to late to start! No matter how old you are.

If you wanted to go to college and couldn’t or didn’t for some reason. Go now!! When my hubby was taking classes there was a lady there in her 90’s and she was having a ball! Unless you are past being able to think at all…it is not too late!

Of course there might be things you can’t do once you reach a certain age. I for sure am not gonna try to be a ballerina at this point! And I would have to get in shape if I wanted to take up cross country running or something like that. But I could still take ballet lessons. That might make the getting in shape easier in fact.

So just about any dream is still valid in some shape or form. You would just have to figure out how to do it.

So go ahead! Be what you might have been! It is NOT too late!

I wrote this post in response to the weekly writing prompt Presented by Tales from The Nursery and iNeed a Playdate.
It is a great help to having something to write. If you need a prompt too then be sure to check it out!

Prompts are Fun button.


  1. I really like that quote. It reminds me that I should not be waiting to live the life I want to live. That’s something I’ve been focusing on this year.

  2. I constantly strive to be a better person, I think everyone has to find their way at some point in his life and leave their comfort zone if necessary to achieve their dreams, never too late!!!
