So for those college grads who find themselves stuck slinging sandwiches when they would rather be saving the world, we say: Take heart. You still have a lot of blank pages ahead of you to fill up with meaning. And if you keep your eyes open, you may be surprised at the ways in which opportunity can be disguised.
And to those who are less certain of the path they wish to travel, we say: Don’t worry. You can, and will, find a passion in life. And fortunately for you, it can be just as fulfilling to follow your dreams at 41 as it is at 21.
