It’s never too late for you to pivot and explore new things! You can have many purposes in life. Sometimes we have that feeling that we are too far engaged in one path, or one career, that it becomes part of our identity. We feel that the dice are already cast and somehow we convince ourselves that we need to honor that path until the end. The fact is, you can have many missions in life... and that’s OK! As long as you let go of what you think you SHOULD be doing and tune in more to what you love, you start to positively impact those around you...
