It's Not Too Late
"Last year I turned 39 and had a bit of a meltdown. I didn’t realise I was age-phobic, but it brought up some stuff...
What would my 20-year-old self think of my almost 40-year-old self? She’d probably think, “Oh fuck, you still haven’t done any of that stuff? Now it’s way too late. You’re old. You missed the boat.” And I’d say, “Yeah, I know, I know, I’ve been thinking that too.”
But now, as I stand on the bridge between 20 and 60, I can just make out the view from beyond.
And I have a feeling that my 60-year-old self would call out: “Darling, get over yourself. You are young and you have 20 years of time to do whatever you like until you get here. And then you’ll still have another 20, 30 or 40 if you keep up the clean living!”
Wow, what a thought, eh? It’s a roll-your-eyes cliché, I know, but it is never too late — until it is, of course. And then who knows?"
