There is so much I still can do. If I want to. I sit here this morning on the deck sipping my coffee watching a guy SUP on the open ocean and it occurs to me — that could be me. My body out there. Because we are not so old or unfit to manage that with a bit of training, practice, and gumption.
Next I watch a pod of scuba divers wade out from the sand to their dive zone. It also occurs to me — I could learn to dive as well. I have several friends who are divers and love the sport. They travel all over the world on dive trips just to see the hidden world beneath the waves.
Yesterday as I watched my grand daughters boogie boarding it became clear that at least one of them, perhaps more than one, would require surfing lessons down the road. And wouldn’t that be fun? To take surfing lessons with your grandchildren?
Always know you have the ability to begin a new adventure, take up a new hobby, start a new anything that has the potential to add joy to your life. Always.
There is no such thing as Too Late.
