I agree with you and I like how you wrote it. For me, turning 40 allowed me to be who I was and follow what I wanted in life. Before that I was bogged down by duty, responsibility, bills etc. To live life as the person you are and to be able to choose what you do instead of being a yes person is a positive place to be and helps establish and maintain healthy relationships. I think it is never too late for people to live their true lives. To lament the wasted time ruins the process and wastes the time needed to live out loud.
