I talked about my friend last year in this post. I admire her so much. At 62 she decided to leave her job as an administrative assistant and to fulfill her lifelong dream of becoming a truck driver. She was attracted to trucks since she was a teenager but never dared to do it. There were always more important things to do (studying chemistry, getting married, being a mom). There was never room for this kind of a dream. And later, it never seemed to be smart to make that move. She thought she was too old.
