We live in a world that is still full of prejudice. Some convince us that there is a time for everything and once you reach a certain age, you can no longer enjoy all the benefits of life.

But the truth lies in a cliché - years are just a number. As you get older, it may get harder to do certain things, but don't let yourself think that it's too late for anything. It's never too late to start living the life you want and being the person you want to be. 

The list of things it's never too late for is long. Here are just 10 of them to start with.

To start anew

Life is full of twists and surprises. It's also full of opportunities that come just when we need a fresh start. You can't miss them or pass them by - you will for sure to recognize them. If you need a fresh start, in any area of your life, don't pass up opportunities just because someone, somewhere thinks it's too late. It's never too late to start over.

Forgive yourself

We have all made mistakes and will continue to make mistakes. Accept your mistakes as valuable lessons you needed. They are just that. And forgive yourself. There's nothing better than forgiving someone, especially yourself. You'll feel free like you never have before. Accept your mistakes, follow the lessons they taught you, forgive yourself and move on.

Learn something new

I will remind you of another cliché - "You learn while you live". Want to learn a language or finally enroll in that online course? Do you dream of learning to salsa dance or have you always wanted a few painting lessons to hone your talent? It's never too late to learn something new. If you're interested, take the first step and see what follows.

Discovering your calling

Some people work the same job all their lives. They look forward to the end of the working day, the working week. They live for Friday or for the holidays and waste their lives waiting. If you find yourself in this situation, it's never too late to look for a new career for yourself. Take your time and think carefully - what is it that you dream of doing, what makes you happy, what do you know you're really good at and could be good at. What is your calling? Don't be afraid to dream, be brave and honest with yourself. And once you've found the answer, look for ways to realize your dream.

To dream

Some say dreams are for a time... it seems like they have an expiration date and at some point in our lives we lose the right to dream. It isn't. No matter your years, no matter your situation, in fact no matter what, no one can take away your right to dream. Don't take it away from yourself. Allow yourself to have the wildest dreams of which you are capable, and at least occasionally check to see if they're achievable.

Learn to love yourself

Many of us learn so much in our lifetime, but never take the time or make the effort to learn to love ourselves. If we don't love ourselves, we can't really love anyone. And no one can truly love us. Put all excuses aside and start loving yourself - the way you've always dreamed of being loved - unconditionally. This is a valuable lesson that cannot be delayed and is never too late to be learned.

Meeting new people

It's never too late to meet new people, discover new friendships, new love, and build new and healthy relationships. Yes, when we are small and young we make friends more easily, we are more open to people and we communicate with ease. But why should we set boundaries for ourselves. Communication is one of the most valuable qualities we develop in our lifetime and it is extremely important that we never stop practicing it.

Becoming the person you want to be

You want to be calmer and more balanced, better, happier, more successful, more confident or maybe braver... Anything you really want can be achieved. Set your goals and get to work. Practice your new quality many times a day, every day. Behave the way you think this brave person would behave. It won't be long before you feel the difference in yourself. Celebrate it. It's never too late to be who you want to be.

To travel

Maybe all your life you've dreamed of seeing Rome /or any other part of the world/. Maybe someone will tell you it's too late for you to embark on such adventures. Another will probably list at least five reasons why you shouldn't travel. Someone will very helpfully point out to you the problems that accompany all travel. With everything in life it is like that. We must learn to truly listen to one person - ourselves. Only this way we will be happy. And no. It's not too late to travel.

To dance

It's never too late to dance, or sing, or hang out with friends, or have fun. Start each day with a smile and gratitude. Don't give up on any dream. And if you feel like dancing, dance!
