"Today is your day to live by doing what you want. "
Last month my husband took his first trip to Europe, at the age of 71. We'd planned many things in our lives, but work, schedules, kids, money, time... etc., always got in the way. You name it, we made an excuse for it. Were they valid excuses? Absolutely. But...
Validity does not equal reality.
The reality was, we could have.
Today's reality is... we are.
My dear friend An said, "she knows there is nothing she can't do." She just wishes she came to this conclusion earlier in her life. This is my message to you:
There is no time like the present, just do it.
Last night I spent the evening with extended family. My sisters were talking about Disneyland. One sister said her kids had never been because "they couldn't afford it." This has been the theme of her life... "I can't afford." But the reality is, she could have afforded it if she wanted to. Now the problem is time and scheduling as the kids are growing and going off to college. The real problem has never been money for her, the real reason was the power her excuses gave to not doing something.
We give our excuses too much power.
Take that power back.
What excuse are you making? Is it easier to be a victim of life and say "I can't because..."
Wake up and Smell the Coffee in another country.
This is your life. You can do anything.
What do you want to do today?
Write a book? Take a trip? Learn to fly?
Go back to school?
Remember to enjoy the journey. It may be the only one you have.
