How often do we put things on hold, or say things like, my life will begin when… or I will be happy, when I have lost weight, I have paid all my debts, I own a house, the kids are grown up and through school, when I get a better a job etc, the list is endless
Recently someone wrote to me the following and I thought it so perfectly true of some many people :-
‘For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin
But there was always some obstacle in the way,
something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business,
time still to be served, or a debt to pay.
Then life would begin.
In the end I realised, These obstacles were my life!’
Such true wise words! Realisation finally arriving.
Your life is just that… ‘your life’!…this is not a dress rehearsal it is the actual thing, this is it! Only you can make it what you want. Only you can make you happy.
You will get from life what you put into it.
Why delay your happiness or the enjoyment of life until some other day, the day that never comes as some other obstacle will be your excuse.
We don’t know when our last day will be, it can be over in a second with no warning.
What would you like written as your epitaph?…’He was waiting for his life to begin ?’
Are you waiting for your life to begin or are you living it ?
