I smiled when I read the poster in the window of the mall beauty salon: “It’s never too late to be what you might have been.” It was surrounded by pictures of the latest hairstyles and colors. I guess that was supposed to be the message: It’s never too late to be a blonde if that’s what you know you are deep inside! . . .
I think it’s a wonderful statement and a spiritual truth. In God it’s never too late to be what you might have been. So many people walk through life with regret. That seems like such a wasted, draining emotion to me. We are not powerless in our lives to make a change, to start over again, to learn to do better next time.
There is so much in life that is wonderful, and it’s not too late to grab hold of it.
One thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. —Philippians 3:13–14
