It's Never Too Late To Start

Watching Julie and Julia tonight (Sharon got to pick the movie tonight). Didn't know much about Julia Child, so I actually am enjoying it. Here's something I learned:

Julia Child began learning to cook when she was thirty-seven years old.

Thirty-seven years old.

I consider that young, especially since I'm a year older than that. But . . . I also grow discontent and impatient and frustrated at having to struggle as a writer. Struggling to write well, struggling to gain new readers, struggling to hit that home run.

At this point in Julia Child's life, she was still learning to cook.

This reminds me of something. It's never too late to start a new journey or discover your passion.

It might take you half of your life to even discover that passion, and that's okay.

If you do, embrace it and run with it. Because, well . . . you never know where it will take you.
