It’s never too late to change course. We might think our circumstances compel us to follow some unchangeable path but as Ralph Waldo Emerson astutely observes, we have choice in our self defining actions.
If we find we don’t like the people we’ve become or see ourselves becoming, these states don’t have to be our destination, rather they can be our vehicles of change toward who we truly wish ourselves to be.
Change can be hard, and indeed painful, but to live our lives with no regrets and be proud of our legacies we must embrace, merge, and remain on, the roads leading to our self-created, non-predetermined, fate. The only people we are destined to become are the people we decide to be.
