There is no perfect time. There never will be.

My awareness of life has increased exponentially lately. Things that I had normally over looked I now see in new light. One of the things I have began to focus more attention on is timing, and I’ve realized something mind blowing: there is no perfect time to do things in life. 

When things slow down… When I’m more motivated… When I reach a certain age… When I’m more comfortable… When I’m more confident… When it feels right… How many excuses can you make for yourself? I’ve been guilty of all of these and more. You can quite literally excuse your life away. So often people spend time waiting for the “right time” that they miss opportunities to take advantage of the time at hand. 

Why wait till New Years to resolve issues within your life? What wait to do something tomorrow that you could do today? Why wait for life to happen to you, when you should be happening to life?

There have been times in my life where I have made a plan to make a plan. How absurd is that? John Lennon stated it best when he said “Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans.” You can be the most prepared person in the world, and still have the wind taken out of the sails of your plans. Life will direct you, if you let it.

But in the same breath I have to express if you live life in anticipation that someday things will fall into line on there own, expect to be disappointed. You owe it to yourself to be active in your own life. There might be a moment where things click for you, I don’t discredit that at all, but that moment will happen simultaneously with the realization that you have to do things for yourself. No one is going to tell you how to live your life, how to accomplish your goals, and how to navigate for an unknown place to a place of accomplishments. You must find your own way, for yourself. 

So get started. There is no perfect time. There never will be.

Turn your tomorrow’s into today’s. Turn your thoughts into actions. Turn your struggles into opportunities

Take moments and make them your own. Search for opportunities and take them. You can make your life whatever you want it to be. All you have is right now, don’t waste it. 

As I’m typing this, in my favorite Starbucks, sipping a latte, I’m almost beginning to feel guilty for not taking my own advice at the moment. There are so many things I could/should be doing…but before I do I have this great urgency to share my thoughts. Not to brag about my accomplishments or dwell on disappointments, but to add fuel to your fire and put wind in your sails. Learn from my mistakes and lets celebrate progress together.

Reevaluate your expectations.
Take advantage of opportunities.
Make moments your own.

Start increasing your awareness.
Start doing and stop waiting.
Start making life happen.
Start something.
Start anything.
Start now.

Again, there is no perfect time. There never will be.
