"It is never too late to become what you might have been"
I have always liked this quote but it always just served as a vague reminder to me that I still had time to figure it all out. Now more than ever it has taken on new meaning for me. As someone who has gone back to graduate school slightly older, with a small child and that ever present goddamned mortgage knocking on my door every month, I am often disheartened by the twenty-somethings that I am surrounded by. I need more than ever to remember this. Read it every day, shout it from the rooftops, WRITE IT ON MY WALLS. Keep pressing on, move forward, you don't want to get dragged down by the "shoulda, coulda, woulda's". It serves no purpose. And with that, I think I really might write it on my wall- a Sharpie would work but how about this instead? And while I am ordering that, I might order this:
P.S. I want to mention, when I searched this online to confirm that quote was George Eliot, there is some debate whether she really wrote it or not. I hate giving out incorrect information and must add this disclaimer.
