My mum tried to learn when she was young but gave up as she wasn't doing very well.
She tried again in her 70s, after my dad died. She gave up again as she felt she was an accident waiting to happen. But at least she gave it a go.
No reason why you shouldn't be able to succeed this time. If you don't, at least you'll have tried; but I think you're young enough to cope and old enough to use your life experience to master the skills.
