Start your new ending today

“I t’s never too late to be what you might have been.”—George Elliot

This quote by George Elliot reminds me that nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending. We are given a fresh start each and every day. I wish you a great beginning to the rest of your life.
