Dear Abby’s response to a writer thinking of going back to school but worried that she will be 40 by the time she got her degree –
“How old will you be in four years if you dont get your degree? You are going to be 40 anyway with or without your degree.“
It reminded me that letting age stop me from my plans was just silly. Also, working at a community college and seeing so many people going back to school in their 30s, 40s, 50s and thriving, the quote really spoke to me.
