It’s scary how fast time flies by. It seems that one day I was 20, and the next I was pushing 40 (and now, well past the 40 mark). I had lived a huge chunk of my life—20 years—in a fog, not moving forward and not enjoying the moment.
What I was waiting for, I do not know.
The perfect time?
The perfect circumstance?
The perfect planetary alignment?
Sometimes it’s scary to think that I ‘lost’ 20 years of my life
I am making up for it now by teaching, volunteering, writing, spending quality time with my kids and doing other things that love. But those ‘lost’ years….they are gone. Forever. My body is older. My mind is more forgetful. My window is smaller.
Do something today for yourself that you’ve always wanted to do, even something small. And plan something grander for later this year. Tell yourself, “This will be the year of….” and make it happen. Because we don’t have really all that many years available to us.
Time to make use of them, eh?
Take a chance. Do something different, daring, and doggone fun!
