We have all heard;
-life is short
-live today as if it’s your last
-procrastination is the thief of time, etc.
In the last month I have experienced several deaths among friends and love ones. I’m not sure if I’m getting older and therefore I’m more aware of those around me. I do know life should be lived to the fullest. You’ve probably heard me say time and time again (especially if you’re a client) not to put off tomorrow what you can do today. Words to live by…and after some soul searching this week I realized I’m not living up to the ‘words I’m preaching.’
I realize I have dishes I’ve never used…I’m waiting for that special meal or special dinner. How many times have you said, oh those are my ‘good’ china and used only at special occasions. Isn’t everyday a special occasion?
When I got married years ago, I received several (actually a small trunk full) of nightgowns. I’m waiting for that special moment to wear them. Isn’t every night I spend with my husband a special moment?
I’m saving my wedding dressing…for what??? I have a son and his future wife will probably wear her mother’s dress. Why not donate it to someone who can wear it now? No brainer right?
Have you found yourself saying;
-It’s on sale, when I lose 10 pounds I can wear it.
-It’s on sale, when the children get to that size they can wear it (what if they grow so fast they can’t fit that particular outfit).
-Maybe one day, I’ll need it…what if one day doesn’t come.
Well, it’s mid morning here and I’m going to make a light brunch and use my ‘good’ china and put on a fancy outfit while waiting for my husband. Perhaps that’s too much information. In any event, what are you saving for ‘one day?’ Consider utilizing it now or releasing it to the universe for someone else to enjoy it.
Until next time…
