For what it’s worth … it’s never too late, or in my case too early, to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit. Start whenever you want. You can change or stay the same. There are no rules to this thing.

We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people who have a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again.

I came across this quote this morning and it has stuck with me all day. It’s a powerful wish. It contains all I’ve ever wished for my sons. It is a wish I claim for myself, for those I care for, for those I have never met who pass by here and find inspiration.

For what it’s worth … when I saw this it was mis-attributed to F. Scott Fitzgerald, though it only appears in the movie version of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button written by Eric Roth, based on Fitzgerald’s short story.
