Now or Later…

Nice text, very beautiful, very true ….! My friend Casey shared it with me today 1.22.19 – author Unknown

 

Later

Hardly the day started and … it is already six o’clock in the evening.

Barely arrived on Monday and it’s already Friday.

… and the month is already over.

… and the year is almost up.

… and already 40, 50 or 60 years of our lives have passed.

… and we realize that we lost our parents, friends.

and we realize that it is too late to go back …

So … Let’s try, however, to take full advantage of the time we have left …

Let’s not stop looking for activities that we like …

Let’s put color in our greyness …

Let’s smile at the little things in life that put balm in our hearts.

And yet, we must continue to enjoy serenely the time that remains. Let’s try to eliminate the “after” …

I do it after …

I will say after …

I will think about it after …

We leave everything for ‘later’ as if “after” was ours.

Because what we do not understand is that:

after, the coffee cools …

after, priorities change …

after, the charm is broken …

after, health passes …

after, the children grow up …

after, the parents get older …

after, the promises are forgotten …

after, the day becomes the night …

after, life ends …

And after that it’s often too late ….

So … leave nothing for ‘later’ …

Because always waiting for later, we can lose the best moments,

the best experiences,

the best friends,

the best family …

The day is today … The moment is now …

We are no longer at the age where we can afford to postpone until tomorrow what needs to be done right away.

So let’s see if you’ll have time to read this message and then share it.

Or maybe you’ll leave it for … “later” …

And you will not share it “ever” ….

Even share with those who are not yet “seniors”.

🙏🙏

Enjoy today. Don’t want for tomorrow

Giving your Best…holiday musing

I’m readying myself for year end 2018. I usually go through the motions of cleaning. Cleaning everything. I start the process about 6 months prior so now I’m in the end game and trying to finalize all my loose ends to start my new year with certain goals attained.

what echoes most as I reflect is giving. Not just monetarily but of myself, my time, my love and attention. Giving the best of me is love. It doesn’t have to diminish me, rather it enhances me.

It’s sometimes scary but I embrace even the challenges because I usually emerge stronger and yield more fruit for pushing through the tough spots.

So as you each end 2018 and walk into a new year 2019. I wish you all the very best in your challenges and your victories. May your 2019 be happy, healthy, loving , cheerful and Eventful, and giving …as you give yourself as well as others your very best.

Live your best lives today and don’t wait for tomorrow.
