It is never too late.
You are only too old, too poor, too uneducated, too uninformed, too fat, too short, too little or too much if you believe it to be true. So, too, is the concept of being too late untrue.
Time is only an illusion. Our perception of time is frequently shifting, changing, and though we look to clocks and calendars, we see and feel it to be fluid and unexpected.
Ever notice how there are times when it feel s like you’ve covered a distance in far fewer minutes than should have been the case? Ever completely lose track of time and find that you have been going at something for either far longer or far shorter than you thought?
This is why it is never too late. Hey, normally I post Positivity in the morning. Today it is in the evening. Yes, it took me all day to come up with what I was going to write about, because I have been on vacation and I am back at work and not fully recovered…but it is not too late to get this out there, and to share it with you.
We are masters of excuses about why we have “missed an opportunity” or “run out of time” or are “too late”. I can’t go back to school, I have a job and thus no time; I am too old to find a soul mate now; I will never have the money I need to travel; I could have done that while I was young, but now it is too late.
These things are only true if we believe them to be. If, however, we focus on what we WANT, rather than what we DON’T WANT, we can build better, more positive, more amazing things for our lives. It is only too late when we convince ourselves that that’s the way it is.
We frequently read about the 90 year old who runs her first marathon; couples getting together in their sixties; people starting singing or acting careers twenty years after high school. How are they different from you or I? Because they didn’t believe that it was too late, and they went ahead and did the thing they wanted, desired, and intended to do.
This requires only a little thought. If you catch yourself discussing how it is too late for you in whatever way, shape or form has come to mind, change it. Believe in the power of it never being too late, of there being potential, endless possibility, and feel the positivity that this can create for you and those around you.
Finding positivity is not hard, but it does require action. Knowing that it is never too late, you can still do things that you might think you have somehow run of out the ability to do. When we feel that it is never too late, and we see we can still create nearly anything we desire, we empower ourselves. When we feel empowered, we often spread that feeling to others around us, and as such can build more positive feelings in the collective consciousness. We can use the positive feelings this generates to dissolve negative feelings. When we take away negative feelings, we open up space to let in positive feelings, and that is something we can be grateful for. Gratitude leads to happiness. Happiness is the ultimate positive attitude. Positive attitude begets positive energy, and that is always a good thing.
This is the one hundred sixty-fourth entry of my Positivity series. It is my hope these weekly messages might help spread positive energies for everyone. Feel free to share, re-blog and spread the positivity.
