Right now, this very moment no matter what you are doing, this is what you got. Anything after this moment isn’t promised. We spend so much time waiting for the perfect time to drop, or waiting for the next best thing to come into our lives. We spend all this time waiting and then one day we realize we lost out on so much.
As adults we get so caught up in the daily grind of “Adulting” that we often forget to enjoy our lives or truly do what we long to do. We forget to stop what we are doing and give that person who just dropped in to say hi, a little time. We put off that vacation because “we don’t have time.” We put off trying that new hobby because we fear of failing. We put off asking that special person to be a part of our lives forever because we are waiting for the perfect time. We put off making that phone call to a loved one because our day is just too busy.
What we are really doing is putting off our Life. We are letting life slip through our hands as if it was never there. We think we have control of our lives and how much time we have for choosing how long we have to finish something or to take that next step. Reality is, we don’t. None of us know when it will be our last day. That hits home very deeply when you read that out loud. I literally got chills as I typed it.
If you are reading this post, you are ALIVE! That means all you have is right now. What are you going to do with it? Are you going to waste it, or are you going to make that phone call, hug that friend, plan that vacation, apply for that job you have always wanted, take that hot bath that you say you never have time for, get your work done, finish building that truck, or take that next big step that you have been so afraid of.
Whatever you choose to do, just do it. No more waiting, and no more excuses.
Right now is all you got!
