windows of opportunity


From Tina Essmaker, Editor-in-Chief, The Great Discontent, Issue Three:

As we grow older, we trade in courage for worry. We accumulate responsibilities that we can’t shirk in favor of careless days–or nights–of fun. We settle into routine and begin to wonder: Has my window of opportunity passed? We’re told not to dream, and well–meaning pragmatists advise us, “That is impossible. Leave it for the young, the up–and–comers.” Yet some of us dare to believe.
. . .
Like the turning of the seasons, we must change to grow.
