One day, there won't be any more "one day."
Read that again. Let it sink in.
We often spend so much of our time saying, "I'll get to that next week," or "I'll start on Monday," or "That's a great plan for next year." But those "nexts" don't ever happen. We keep putting off the things we really want until we have more money, we are married, we have the new job... fill in the blank with whatever you have been saying to yourself.
I don't know about you, but I don't want to keep waiting to do the things I want to do. I don't want to keep waiting until the next "next."
The important question, however, is WHY do we do that? Why do we wait to fulfill our happiness and wants and desires? Why do those things get put on the back burner?
I think we get lulled into a false sense that we have all the time in the world. That it won't matter if we wait because tomorrow will always come and we'll always have the time to do whatever it is we want to do.
I also think it's because we like to stay in our safe zones. We want to be comfortable and not step outside of our bubbles. And while that isn't necessarily a bad thing, it causes a lot of us to put our big dreams and plans on hold. Oftentimes on a permanent hold!
I know I talk a lot about comfort zones and getting out of them and following your dreams, but this post is also about doing the things you want to do with your family and loved ones. Saying things you want and need to say to other people. It isn't just about following your dreams in business, but it's about following your dreams in life.
We are only here for a limited time. And unfortunately, none of us know when our time will be up.
So do the things you've been putting off! Don't keep delaying them until the next "next." Because one day, we won't have any more "one days."
Live passionately. Call a friend you haven't talked to in awhile and catch up. Make those plans to visit a family member. Or to travel where you've always wanted to go.
Live. Your. Life.
Don't stay so comfortable in your safety zone that your life passes you by without fully living and enjoying your life!
What are you putting off til tomorrow? Til the next "next?" What can you start putting into action today?
Have a beautiful week! And I hope all you mothers had a glorious Mother's Day!
With love and wellness,
