There was a man who waited his entire life to take a trip out west. He’d dreamed of traveling across the plains on horseback and hiking the mountains with sightings of wildlife all around him. He had the money. He had vacation time saved up. He just hadn’t made the time to plan and schedule his trip. Then he died.
There was a woman who cruised online listings of cozy, waterfront cottages and sometimes made it to an open house or two. She dreamed of driving there on weekends throughout the year, waking before sunrise to walk the ocean in any kind of weather, and tucking herself away from the world as a means to inspire her creativity or just simply be. She could swing it financially with some sacrifices and take that chance, but she waited and waited. Then she fell ill and found herself bedridden for the rest of her life.
And what about those who want to learn to play an instrument or paint? The person who wants to volunteer or take up a new language? Maybe their goals aren’t to travel the world or have a beach house, but simply participate in something that ignites their passion and lifts their spirits.
Maybe that person is – you!
What are you waiting for? Why haven’t you done it? What’s standing in your way?
Life is short. We have no way of knowing what tomorrow may bring and if we wait too long to do the things we say we want to do, it might just be too late.
So make it happen. Don’t wait. Stop saying ‘soon’ and replace that with ‘today.’ There is never a good time for anything, truly. There is always too much work, too many family commitments, or other responsibilities that you believe hinders you from taking time to bring some magic into your life.
Don’t make excuses. Because that’s what those are.
And don’t wait on others. Don’t wait for a friend who may be interested or finding the love of your life. Be the love of your life and live – today!
