Day 238, Quote 27: “It’s never too late, or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be.”

For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, that are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope […]
