It’s Not Too Late

One of my favorite HIMYM episodes is HIMYM season8 eps 17.

What’s Lily going through maybe similar with what I’m thinking for this time..

And Marshall is so sweet :’)

Marshall: “Oh my God, Lily! What is the big deal? Okay, so what? So he said you’re just a kindergarten teacher. Why do you let that bother you?”

Lily: “Because he was right. I am just a kindergarten teacher.” “And yes, I have a degree in art history and i was meant to do something with it, but i didn’t.” “Somewhere along the line, I forgot to pursue my dream, and now.. I’m old and I’m a mom and it’s just too late for me.

Marshall: “No.. no.. no.. It’s not too late. You”re gonna quit your job tomorrow. And you’re gonna go back and pick up right where you left off with that art stuff.” “And then you know what. I’m gonna find Shelly, and I’m gonna punch her in the face. I am gonna punch a girl and run away.”

Marshall: “Look..  I promise you, your best and your most exciting days are all ahead of you.”

Lily: I love you so much for saying that, but there gets to be a point in life where that just stops being true.”

And you know what, the good thing in the story is.. yes, it’s not too late.. She still can get her dream.

So can I, right? Although it’s not instantly happen, and it may take years..
