It’s so true and the thing is, when we’re younger we feel so much pressure to make a final decision and then once we’re older we realize we have the ability to change and evolve and begin all over again whenever we feel the time is right.

I wrote this story in which this quote of what I tell my kids is from, “ Then there’s the moments of breakdowns and fits because they have no idea what they want to be when they grow up. Settle down, kids. I had no idea what I wanted to be until I was like 40 and now I want to take it back.”
