After months in a vase in my kitchen window, a cutting from a favorite hydrangea has sprouted tiny roots. More than once I considered giving up, thinking enough time had elapsed for roots to form. But I remained hopeful, and time allowed for development. These new roots hold promise for growth and new life. In time, vibrant blossoms are a real possibility
“It’s never too late to be what you might have been,” is a well-known quote by George Eliot (Mary Anne Evans). I interpret her message as encouragement to seek personal growth and find one’s authentic self, however long it takes.
Rather than leave room to misconstrue as, “What you are now is not enough,” I would say: “It’s never too late to realize your full potential.”
It is never too late to grow new roots, new life . . . to bloom.
