Never too late

Yesterday, I caught up with an old friend for a few hours. It was lovely.

In the past, she was flakey and non-communicative. This was frustrating.

She told me she was working on it. So I curiously asked her what strategies she was using to work on her communication skills. She looked up at me and said, unironically, “Stuff like this.”

I smiled.

I don’t mean for this to sound condescending, but it’s never too late to improve: skills, relationships, habits.

Seemingly out of the blue, a friend has reappeared in my life. All her own doing.

It’s not too late. It’s never too late.
