Until they put you six feet under… Until your body and/or mind gives out on you completely…It is never too late to make a positive change in your life.

It is never too late to grow. It is never too late to implement change in your life. It is never too late to start over. It is never too late to learn something new. The list of obstacles and impediments supplied by life are long and imposing. Life is equipped with enough struggles that no one is begrudged just trying to maintain a status quo and attaining stability. Yet, I argue that the thirst to strive for more should never dissipate, regardless of the circumstances.

It is an irony that the realities of “Life” are often the greatest impediments to fully living and enjoying “Life”. Kids, bills, student loans, car payments, rent, mortgages are just the tip of life’s responsibilities that often force or compel the direction of one’s journey. Those responsibilities and the associated pressures can be overwhelming. Yet, we must never forget it is never too late to change the narrative of our own lives.

I haven’t heard the phrase in a while, but it is not true that “you cannot teach an old dog a new trick.” While I am not sure what the official cutoff for being considered “old” at the very least I should be in the “mature” aisle of life by now.

I am more receptive to new thoughts and information than at any time since my childhood. That fact is made more interesting in that the strength of my convictions has never been stronger, but knowing what is right and wrong for myself, is not the same as being unwilling to understand and attain empathy for the issues and circumstances that others may face.

This openness to attaining knowledge is not limited to trying to understand human nature. Knowledge, as an adult, centrally begins with self-awareness. There are a myriad of circumstances and decisions that affect our life’s path. It is important to be honest and ascertain our own responsibility in the choices both made and not made in our lives.

Self-awareness is the initial empowering step toward understanding. An understanding that we have more control over our lives than initially understood. It is never too late to try and achieve goals that were deferred if not forgotten. It is never too late to learn something new. It is never too late to strive for the happiness and fulfillment that has been elusive… It is simply never to late to persevere.

It is never too late to change the narrative of your life.
