It’s Never Too Late To Be Who You Might Have Been

This is Peanut Butter Brickle. It’s another day, and I’m still learning. I’m still here at the dude ranch with Fruitycake. But we leave today. And I’m a little sad about it.

I really didn’t expect to like it as much as I did here. A few things made me push myself. Like the stairs leading up to our suite.

And I definitely didn’t expect to take a truck ride to Scarecorn Creek with a cowboy that lifted me up like I was as light as a Fruitycake.

You know, I was thinking yesterday that I felt alive. Alive! That I still could try new things. And that it is never too late to be who you might have been.

Because I used to be very nervous of everything. And I wasted time being nervous and scared. And now, well, I won’t be that way. Because I want to live. I don’t want to wonder.

If you’ve ever wanted to be something when you were younger, what was it? A certain profession? Maybe you wanted to be a better version of you, whatever that was! Like a personality trait you wanted to have or to simply be kinder.

I know some things may be out of reach. I highly doubt that Boy Person could be a professional soccer player now. But he could play as good as he can now! He could be the best version of that now. And that’s what he would have done in the past. Be his best. And you can be your best.

Seeing the ranch taught me a lot in just two days time.

The ranch taught me I was stronger than I knew. And that maybe, just maybe, there are more things about myself that will show it’s never too late to be who I might have been. And that is the same for you. I believe in you. I do. I really do.

We are headed to the mountains today for cooler weather! A friend of ours treated us to this cabin. And we are so grateful. Stay tuned!
