Waiting For The "Right Moment"?
"There are seven days in the week, someday isn't one of them." - Unknown
The more conscious we are of time, the more likely we are to "time" our lives. We set alarm clocks in the morning, give ourselves a bedtime in the evening, we have "lunch hour" during the day, and tea time if you're British. There's always an appropriate time for everything, it's the way things are, right? Ever been told you're "too young" to understand, or too old to do something? Here's a 70-year-old body builder. Someone forgot to tell him he's "too old", but I'd argue to him, age is just a number.
Waiting for the "right time" to start a project, go on that trip, ask someone out? It's probably now. Work usually doesn't do itself (I've tried) you have to put in the hours. Procrastination just delays the gratification of finishing. Waiting for the "right moment" is the same as "someday" or "I'll do it later".
Don't let the way everyone else times their lives influence your own timing. Are your priorities being met? You can undo, repair, recycle, many things but we still can't get back time (not yet).
This thing all things devours:
Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;
Gnaws iron, bites steel;
Grinds hard stones to meal;
Slays king, ruins town,
And beats high mountain down.
This is one of the riddles Gollum gives Bilbo in J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit. When I read this, I always feel humbled. Time is such a huge part of our lives yet we can't see, smell, taste, or feel it. Don't let time slowly erode what you've always wanted, the right moment is the only one we have, now.
