That sounds awfully harsh, doesn't it? But just wait. Before everyone begins to shout and stamp their feet about how I'm crapping all over their dreams, let me explain.
When I was about 14 I had a (brief) dream that I wanted to become a professional female skateboarder. Now, for those who know me personally I'll allow for some time to stop laughing, and wipe the tears from your eyes.
Ok, so I wanted to be a skateboarder. I loved the culture, I loved the fashion, I loved the idea of breaking boundaries in what was a predominantly male sport, I loved the bright colorful deck designs on a skateboard that allows people to get a glimpse of your personality as you're kicking ass and taking names while catching air on some impossibly high half pipe. Oh, and skateboard guys were cute too. In their own, teenage apathy kind-of-way.
The problem with that dream (well, the biggest problem anyhow) was that it's not consistent with living out the best possible version of myself. It's not who I was designed to be. I would have been an imposter. Everyone has limitations, and mine has to do with just about anything involving grace, coordination, or athleticism of any kind.
Are you living life as the best possible version of yourself, or do you often feel like an imposter? What can you do today to get one step closer to becoming the best possible version of you?
I will tell you this: It's not too late. It's never too late, and if your brain or anyone else is telling you it is, they're wrong.
This does not mean to abandon your responsibilities, quit your job, and move to the ocean to play your conch shell (different dream- another time maybe). However, chances are there is something you can do today to help you get a little closer to being exactly who you were designed to be. Happy, joyful, and living as the best possible version of yourself.
