Buddha says...

The trouble is, you think you have enough time. ~The Buddha

Time enough to visit later.
Time enough to go back to school later.
Time enough to exercise later.
Time enough to eat better later.
Time enough to clean up later.
Time enough to write that letter later.
Time enough to save money later.
Time enough to say a prayer later.

Sure, perhaps you do. But if you keep saying that to yourself, time will fail you, for you'll run out of it. Then will you have done any of those things you always thought you had time for? Time is a tricky bugger. One moment you're 20-something, the next you're 40-something and where did time go?

Even if you just do one thing. Do it. Do something.One thing leads to another thing, and after a while you'll have done many things. Then a whole lot of things. You'll accomplish. You'll feel better and you'll have done better. Don't let fear or complacency eat away at your life. Take time now. Because,

The trouble is, you think you have enough time.....

HERE HERE! I love that quote and that is why I say, "Do whatever it is you want, NOW."

It is such a pleasure to meet you! Thank you for coming to leave a comment, and by the sound of it, you have been over before! I really appreciate your following me and I WILL BE BACK! NOW is the time for me to take a break for just a two week period, but it will be worth it.

Thank you for this wonderful post and reminder to do what is important while we have the time and energy. Anita
