Not Too Late

Day 9 of 30: Post some words of wisdom that speaks to you


It is never too late to be what you might have been

– George Eliot.


This post is closely related to my previous post about my anxiety. So, whenever I feel that dark shadows of hopelessness creeps up on me and blurs my mind, I always read the quote (which I wrote on my whiteboard in my room). I try to internalize the quote and calm myself by saying that “it’s never too late, nothing is ever too late.” Sometimes that works.

Anyway, George Eliot’s Middlemarch is always on my reading list, but I haven’t had the chance to read it. I heard that some review says that it is the greatest novel in the English language. Has anyone read it?

Oh, and there is other quote that speaks to me from the movie “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.” It covers the same theme with what George Eliot had said, and I love it very much, too.

For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.”

So, it’s not too late, right?
