No More Waiting
The last couple of years have been interesting to say the least. After extensive soul searching, standing in front of the accountability mirror, working with a mentor and attending life-altering events, I slowly started to conclude I was alive but not truly living life.
The piece below, This Time, was instrumental in me refocusing my time, efforts and energies into a life where I finally started to live, love and create a legacy. Enjoy and live life fully!
A Man in his eighties was asked a question: If you could come back and live the life of anybody at any time in history, who would you want to be?
His answer was: I’d want to come back as the man I could have been, but never was.
This time I would act with more courage. I wouldn’t allow my fear to turn me away from opportunities that I didn’t take.
I would risk more. I’d take more chances, I wish I had.
I’d allow myself to fail more, love more and laugh more.
This time I’d be sure to live more.
Joseph Campbell said: “We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us. The old skin has to be shed before the new one can come.”
