Sieze the day!

‘Do not live in the shadow of an idea without grasping it’

This was a variation of a quote I saw in the paper today, which I liked. Then I noticed that a recent daily prompt was about procrastination, and decided to connect the two for today’s blog.

How many times do we moan and whinge about if only…..

I had many many comments like this when I announced that I was emigrating to New Zealand. The common theme was something about how others wished they had the guts to do what I was doing, and so on.

I haven’t really ever been one to procrastinate. There is no reason why you can’t just decide to do something then do it. Any barriers that are in the way of the goal that you set are barriers that YOU placed there. Perhaps it is because we fear what would happen if we DIDN’T achieve the goal? Perhaps it is because we look at the grand goal rather than the steps required to get there? Sometimes we simply are not fully committed to our goal.

Whatever the reason, YOU are in charge of your destiny, your decisions and the path that you create.

So, I will end how I began:

‘Do not live in the shadow of an idea without grasping it’

Have a great week.
