“It is never too late to turn on the light. Your ability to break an unhealthy habit or turn off an old tape doesn’t depend on how long it has been running; a shift in perspective doesn’t depend on how long you’ve held on to the old view.
When you flip the switch in that attic, it doesn’t matter whether its been dark for ten minutes, ten years or ten decades.
The light still illuminates the room and banishes the murkiness, letting you see the things you couldn’t see before.
Its never too late to take a moment to look.”
― Sharon Salzberg
It doesn’t matter if you haven’t tasted your food since 1982. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been on autopilot for 45 years. It doesn’t matter if you’re still filled with anger over that thing that happened 10 years ago. It doesn’t matter if you have been avoiding yourself your whole life. It doesn’t matter if your internal monologue is atrocious. It doesn’t matter if you raid the fridge after a stressful day.
It’s never too late to flip the switch.
Look and see.
