It's Never Too Late...


I don't typically borrow topic straight from another blogger, but today's post at Habitually Chic struck a nerve. When I ponder how exactly to make my "dream" happen, and worry that time is passing me by, I need to remember that Julia Child was 37 when she first began cooking...

Thank you, HC, for keepin' it real.

Definitely a very important reminder! So many things one can learn from Julia...

I have a magnet on my fridge that says, "It is never too late to be what you might have been"

I look at it constantly when I start to freak out over my career change and all the what ifs.

I finished reading Julie and Julia a couple of weeks ago and I love that she started so late in life. I also found out last night that Paula Deen didn't get her start till her 40s. It's never too late!

Julia is not typical. I mean she was a spy during WW2! But i agree that age should not matter. The older you get to your dream the more likely you are to have the wisdom to enjoy it.

It is never too late. Ever. 'Til you're in a box or urn. I know whereof I speak. More about which another time. But I'm not really THAT old yet & I've had several lives. Already. (Not all good, but well...life happens.)

I met Julia thru a contemporary of her--a close friend (who is MUCH older than I am:) He became a full professor of literature & respected published poet at 48. Just in case I need to say it: that's old for academia.

Julia taped her first program that would turn into TFC in Cambridge (MA) on the cusp o'50 years old. Yep. (Yes, she was delightful.)

Lovely site & congratulations on getting that adorable baby to two!

ciao, my dear

Yes, thanks for the reminder. I always think life is passing me bye & the clock is ticking louder with each passing hr. Never give up!
