At this age I thought I’d be…

When I was 30 imagining my life at 40…well to be honest, when I was 30, 40 seemed old to me. Oh the ignorance of youth.  I remember thinking “If I don’t get done all the things I want to get done in the next 10 years then what’s the point?” The thought that by 40 my career wouldn’t be established or that I wouldn’t be financially secure or that I wouldn’t be married, never occurred to me.

Needless to say 40 has turned out a lot differently than I’d imagined, but that’s turned out to be not such a bad thing.  Who says that if you haven’t gotten it done/figured out/accomplished by 40, you’ll never figure it out? Check out this great video by Mike Kravinsky, who runs one of my new favorite sites, The video, All Hail The Late Bloomer, serves as a reminder to us all that it’s never too late to be who you might have been…… youth and genius aren’t inextricably linked
