You Only Have Now

You Only Have Now

   How do you plead? Your honor, I plead guilty to waiting and wasting valuable time. I am guilty of waiting for favorable conditions and circumstances. I let life get in the way of so many of my goals and plans. I can never get back the time I've wasted, but I can start now. 

 Most of you can relate to holding off on your goals for health, family, and any other reason we can conjure up. Abracadabra, years have passed and I was no closer to my dreams. So, if not now, when? I had a cruel summer, but it allowed me to prioritize things in my life. When your forced to sit on the sidelines of life, you realize how much living you should have been doing all along.  You become like Tim McGraw's song Live Like You Were Dying. ​ I never want to look back anymore with regret. I've been making changes, reading, joining groups, and taking classes to go after my goals.   Change really is hard, its uncomfortable and it makes you want to pack up and move back home. I have quit being an adult so many times, I've lost count. The risk of failing is so great, but what if I actually succeed. Unfortunately, the only way to know is to try and try again. 

What are the top 5 things you really want to achieve? Make a list of those things and the reasons you can't go after them.  Change the reasons you can and accept what you can't change.  Go after your dreams no matter how big or small you think others believe they are. If you fail try again, a second, hour or, day the next day. Never give up on yourself, start now.
