Whenever someone says they are “too old” or “too young” for something, I wonder if the reason for it is really that they are afraid of failure or even afraid of success!

I have so much admiration for people who are open minded and willing to try something new – at any age. My daughter is not yet three, and there is no concept of “too young” for her. She watches her brother and jumps right in to whatever activity he’s got on the go, from hammering nails into the dirt on the driveway (don’t worry, mom is supervising!), to jumping onto a pile of blankets from a windowsill, to helping with family cooking and cleaning.

I say, go for it! Whatever you dream of, whatever you’re scared of, take a deep breath and leap. Even your mistakes will be exhilarating, and the amazing possibilities of a life lived fully are infinite.
