Why Wait?

We often, quite sadly, I think, put off for later, those things which we would most love to do right now. Those things which bring joy into our hearts and into the hearts of others. We say that our work must by necessity consist in doings things for which we feel no love. We say, drudgery is just part of the deal. Put your nose to the grindstone. And we do it with all kinds of things, large and small, don’t we. Then it gets to be a habit. And bad habits can be hard to break. So sometimes, we need a little inspiration to remind us that we better wake up to where we are right now and make the most of every moment. This moment right here, yes. Guess what? It’s the only one we got!

While many of you may have already seen this, I suggest you give it another go. What is life’s greatest pieces of wisdom if not essentially reminders? So here’s your reminder. Call it a kick in the pants if you like, with heart.

Many of you may never have seen it, heard of it. You friends, are in for a treat.
