Too often,  people beat themselves up for not discovering their passions sooner, but everyone has their own schedule. Make peace with yourself. You’ve done nothing wrong.

Don’t waste another minute wondering what’s taken you so long. Use the valuable time you have now to enjoy life and to discover what makes you happy. It’s time to forgive yourself and move on.
