You are never too old to start something new

I had a discussion with someone recently, where I have to say I whole heartedly disagreed with them. I love to see different peoples opinion and learn about what makes people tick. The discussion surrounded the idea of ‘It’s never too late to learn something new.’ I personally still harbor many ambitions of things I want to learn, places I want to visit and experiences that I would like to try. This other person, who is actually younger than me, believes that they are now too old to learn anything new.

I can put my mind into many situations and scenarios, as this is part of my job in advertising, but to think that where I am now I have learnt all I am able to learn makes me shudder with fright, and worse makes me ponder if I did believe this why would I continue and what would be my motivation? For me the chance to still do, learn and experience new things is what gets me out of bed in the morning as an individual. Of course there is part of me that soldiers on daily due to the responsibilities I have but that alone cannot sustain a person, surely? I would love to hear your thoughts on this today…Have a creative day.

  1. I have to definitely agree with you…I hope I never get too old to learn new things…once you stop being curious…what’s left to do? 🙂 My fav pix: 3rd in 3rd row and 3rd in 6th row. 🙂


    1. What I love about the picture that is 3rd in the 6th row is that the more you look at it the more you see. A bit like life, the more you look the more there is to learn 🙂

      Take care Alan.


  2. I am 52 years old ::cough cough:: and I am back in school, completing my ACP (Advanced Care Paramedic), upgrading from my Primary Care Paramedics certification. I truly believe that one is never too old to learn new things. One just has to have motivation, ambition and dedication. Come to think of it, every situation in life is a learning experience. It is a daily choice to make decisions and live with them. No matter the outcome, right or wrong, we are learning and if we are learning than we are succeeding …everyday.


    1. I saw your results as well Seth, Fantastic! All the best with everything. And you don’t look 52 mate! Take care Alan


  3. We will never run out of things to learn so never will I be too old to learn.

    Love the last pic. There is always so many things going on in a woman’s life even when she seem to be sitting still 🙂
