Too Late? 607

“It’s never too late to be what you could have been” – George Elliot

Please play this… it just sets the mood. :)
I have a notebook that have this quote written on to it. When I got it, it was in the bookstore of the Monash campus and I did so because the quote hit a chord with me. As I think that it can hit something for anybody who has a hope or a dream. I have many aspirations and sometimes I find that can be a down fall because there is no focus. Which is why after last year, since I took my first step into a paying job, I have come to realise that I should really focus into what it is that I’m passionate or at least like, into a job that can hopefully pay well.

Somewhere last week, I was helping my friend get the idea of the advertising industry. And I passed her this book called “Clueless in Advertising”. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is getting the urge to try out advertising as their first career.


Anyway peaking out of the book was a bookmark I a while back and I had totally forgotten about it. The Bookmark had the same quote as the notebook. Interesting when I start to question about things in my life, like direction and what not, certain things will pop up to remind me why I am fighting for the goal I am aiming for.


What i aim for, would probably eat me whole and for all I know I may end up eating sand if it doesn’t pull through. Reality kicks in and then that is when you realise that not every dream can come true because you have to end up fighting to survive. Which is why I’m glad that God popped back this line to me.

You can’t just give up with what it is you want to do. Work hard at it, Try all you can for it. I need some reflection time for this . I don’t want to end up thinking that when I grow older, the thing that I yearned for is not attainable because I didn’t try or because there were obstacles in the process.

One only has one life to live. Why not live it to the fullest and make the most of it. Why slave away to labour that you aren’t happy about?
You just need to believe that it isn’t too late for anything. That it is all up to oneself to really strive for something. I sound like an old person saying this. I’m really glad that there are people like Timothy, Joel and young people out there who are striving for something in life but doing what they enjoy. It is not everyday that one gets that. So I urge those who are still in college or whatever… find what you are passionate about, make that your job.

Don’t wake up in the morning to realise that you don’t like what you are doing with your life. Like some of us who have encountered that after Uni. It’s something that maybe you wont’ see till you are in, you’ll have to experience it. But this is what I seem to see prevalent in young people this day.

“It’s never too late to be what you might have been”


Just BELIEVE in yourself. :)
