It’s Never Too Late To…..

The time for action is now. It’s never too late to do something.– Antoine de Saint-Exupery

It’s Never Too Late To…..
I really love this quote by George Elliot, “it is never to late to be what you might have been!”  There are so many things in our life that we tend to get down and out about holding on to the feeling that we will never be able to do something because “it’s too late”! I don’t believe that it is ever “too late” and I know the saying “never say never” but this time I am going to say is never too late!

It’s never to late to apologize:  I don’t agree with Justin Timberlake that it is too late to apologize.  For me to not apologize for something that you may have done wrong is a cop out!  When you know you have done something that has offended another, to not apologize because it is too humiliating to admit your mistakes will end up hurting you in the long run!  You will be amazed at what it means to someone when you stop and take the time to make things right!  If you have ever done so, then you know how wonderful a feeling it can give you and the one you apologize to!

It’s never too late to love: I have read on  numerous occasions on posts, in stories, seen in movies when the question is brought up about loving someone, whether or not it is too late.  I don’t believe that it is ever too late to love, love ones that you have known your whole life that they were just friends, and now you have special feelings towards them.  Is it wrong or a bad idea some have asked me about falling in love with a friend they have had for years and I it isn’t, how better can it be to be in love with your best friend.  The love of your life often is your best friend too.  Is it too late after a certain age to fall in love?  Of course not, love is something that you can never be too late for!

It’s never too late to forgive: If someone has done something to offend or hurt you, it is never to late to forgive them and to let it pass.  Holding on to bitterness is only going to harm one person, and that person is you!  If you are able to move on after having been hurt, you will find that you have a whole new lease on life and that you will go one to be much happier and productive than you ever will be by allowing something to totally take the wind out of you!

It’s never too late to start over:  Boy, I ought to know that for sure!  I have started over in so many places, so many jobs, so many challenges in my life that it has almost become a part of my being.  Now that I am a little older I am looking forward to settling down a little bit!  But, some folks have not had to start over as many times as I, and others have never had too!  With today’s economic climate as well as in certain natural disasters, many people are finding themselves having to start all over from scratch!  It is not easy, but it is not impossible either!  You never know, you may embark on something all together better than what you had previously!  Look for the rainbow after the storm and you may find the magical pot of gold at the end!

It’s never too late to kick a bad habit: With the proper concentration and desire you can quit doing something that you have found is not good for you like smoking or over eating!  Of course if you have gone on for a long period of time, you will have caused a lot of damage already, but that is no reason to not go for kicking a bad habit!  Don’t let yourself fall into the “it’s too late to quit so I might as well just keep doing what I have been doing” trap!  Today is just as good a day as any!

There are so many instances where it is never too late!  I am sure you can come up with more!  Finish this phrase: It’ never too late to…..
