It’s never too late……..

The topics of the posts that I commented on as part of yesterday’s Blogging 101 assignment were; Perfectionism, Ageing, Letter Writing and Power, so I initially thought I would be clever and write a post about all 4 but that idea fortunately was just fleeting, as I realised that it would take me days.

Then I moved to’ perfectionism’ and thought no. I have spent far too much of my life wrestling with perfectionism just because my School reports usually read ‘must try harder’ or ‘could do better’ and therein lies not just perfectionism, but seriousness and a lack of confidence – not that I am bitter anymore!

I quite liked the the idea of writing a letter to my younger self, so during my 45 minute drive to work there was reflection, words, sentences, and much scribbling out, all in my head. Oddly enough it all seemed a bit belated.

But what about writing a letter from my older self to me now? Now that I am liking, that is what I want to know. And all of a sudden there it was, I had just walked into a workshop to collect some signage for work and there was a fabulous sign;

“It is never too late to be who you might have been”

This totally nailed it for me. The joy and the freedom of knowing, that it is never too late, I walked out of the workshop, feeling invincible.

So thank you to those who have inspired me: The Apprentice, The Personal Blog of Henry Jones, Blog of Sharmin and WanderLaur

  1. I love that quote. I’m constantly having to remind myself how pointless it is to regret what you were not in the past, how the only thing I can change is the future. Was/am still planning on writing a letter to my younger self though.

  2. Glad you’ve found inspiration within this great community! I REALLY like that – “it’s never too late to be who you might have been”. I may have a post brewing now… 🙂
