It"s Never Too Late to Live Your Life the Way You Want It
That's the reality of life.
As we go through life, things change and we change.
That's also reality.
You may have wanted to do something in your life, especially when you were younger, right? And it didn't happen the way it was supposed to.
That's again, reality.
Now the crazy thing about reality is that it's never too late to live your life and to do the things you've always wanted to do.
Think about the many people who went through life and finally started doing the things they've always wanted to do.
What makes you any different? I'd bet that some of the people who did make it later in life was older than some of you.
Take Grandma Moses (Anna Mary Robertson), she started her career as an artist at the age of 75.
She was prolific with it until her death in 1961 at the age of 101.
Grandma Moses started painting because of her arthritis which stopped her from doing embroidery as a career.
Her focus was on folk art which she was famous for.
She had no formal training, especially in perspective, yet her simple style was welcomed the world over - including Europe and Japan (where she was especially received).
She was honored the world over and especially by President's Truman, Eisenhower, and Kennedy.
On her 100 and 101 birthday, Gov.
Nelson Rockefeller of New York declared both days as Grandma Moses Day.
