Better late than never. This is true whether you are visiting friends, learning new skills, or reaching your goal of traveling to all 50 states. It’s even a great reminder for a well-intentioned but easily distracted blog writer like myself.
Better late than never is the voice of the optimist. The one that says “I may struggle, I may falter, but I will not give up.” It’s the hope that refuses to die. It’s your reason to keep going in the face of life’s obstacles.
This is the belief that though life may deal you a rough hand, though your plans may not work out the way you thought they would, you will not stop trying. You will not quit reaching for your goals, no matter what obstacles life throws your way.
Better late than never is a song in your head. A mantra that repeats endlessly, pushing you to keep going when the sky looks dark and the sun is hidden from view. It is the knowledge that the best things in life are worth fighting for.
Better at 50 to start a fitness plan, than to never start at all. Better at 34 to start your search for you life’s purpose, than never to begin. Better at 44 to discover your love of dancing, than to never to take a class.
Not all of us were blessed at an early age with the confidence and knowledge we need to succeed in life. Some of us suffered with parents who lacked the necessary life skills to teach their children to thrive. Others of us were distracted by parties, good times or quick thrills.
But whether we began our path early on and stumbled to a stop, or simply never began our journey at all, we can always begin anew. Start now. Live the life you’ve dreamed of for so long. Take a chance; break through your comfort zone. Dare to be you. Better late than never!
