Gratitude Friday: it's Never Too Late...

Some time ago I was in the local library checking out the "for sale" selves. This is a dangerous activity as I inevitably leave with more books to stack in all of the corners of my living space. I love books, although I have many unread.

One book which I purchased for 50cents has been sitting on the coffee table. The author is Patrick Lindsay and the title is "It's Never Too Late... : 172 simple acts to change your life." Today I was cleaning up a bit around here and randomly opened this small book to read the following entries.

It's never too late...
to grow

Move forward.
Every day.
Take every chance to learn.
From mistakes.
From advice.
By observation.
Through experience.
Push through your comfort zone.
Explore new subjects.
Meet new people.

It's never too late...
to find balance

It's a bit like class:
hard to define but you know it when you see it.
You'll know balance when you feel it.
Seek it in your work.
Your relationships.
Your family.
Your diet.
Your passions.
Enjoy the glow.

It's never too late...
to write

Your stories are like no other.
Your experience.
Your view.
Your hopes, losses, triumphs.
Are unique.
Record them.
Invent them.
Write them.

"You can only write about what bites you." - Tom Stoppard

I hope that you continue to grow, find balance, and share your stories. I attempt to do the same. Please have a great weekend, folks. Thanks for reading.
