    Hi Hilda,
    There’s so much comfort and reassurance in that last quote by George Eliot. “It’s never too late…” –> great words to always keep in mind, no matter what our age is. Hilda, I find this to be so true as I go through what feels like a re-make of my life journey – that’s it’s not too late is so, so good to read! Happy Monday!

    Happy Monday Lance : )
    Yep, never too late. Each day can be a new beginning if we so choose : )

  3. Love this one: “It is never too late to be what you might have been.” ~ George Eliot
    It’s not too late for me to become a well-known, influential author! Yay! There’s hope! :)

  4. Oh I love the surrender quote. It ties in with where I’m at in life right now. My mind is strong; stubbornly so, and it thinks it can get me to where I’m supposed to be. My heart knows better, though.
    I like the first quote, too. There’s another similar one that adds the word “insanity” to the mix. Reminds me of a lesson I learned a year ago along those lines. I’m such a creature of habit, and yet I say I want change in certain areas. Am I willing to abandon outdated ways of thinking & behaving though? If not and I still expect change, I’m insane. (smile)

    Hi Dani,
    no it’s never too late ;-) And as for your writing goal, it’s only a matter of time and you have buckets of that!
    Hi Megan,
    I know that quote, I think it’s Albert Einstein: Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result – or something along those lines ;-)
    Surrender is a lesson I’m learning these days too, and it’s not always easy but when I do it, it only serves me well :-)

  6. Sweet quote. We should definitely be more than what we are by doing something different. Its a pleasure to read your blog post.
