Am I too old to begin?

Good day everyone,

I am turning 42 years old in about 2 weeks and was considering entering the pilot world. I retired from the Marine Corps after 22 years and wanted to become a pilot. Should I be concerned of my age? I know pilots have to retire at 65 so I have plenty of time before that. Would love to hear thoughts.
