Another great quote today, this time from Paulo Coelho,
“One day you will wake up and there won’t be any more time to do the things you’ve always wanted to do. Do them now.”
As I’ve said before, ‘not having the time’ is probably my own and many other people’s go-to excuse for why we’re not doing the things we want to do, and indeed living the life that we want to be living.
It’s useful to remind yourself that one day, you really won’t have the time, or the ability, to do these things. One day, they truly will be out of reach.
Your legs won’t be able to carry you through that morning run you’ve been putting off. You may be too frail to travel to that place you’ve always wanted to go to. The loved one that you’ve been meaning to catch up with for so long might not be there anymore.
So act now. And when you are out of time, you can look back on all of the fabulous things you’ve done.
