Now's The Time

A friend of mine recently posted a blurb on one of our many social networks stating that he was going to write a list of things he wants to accomplish now.  He said he doesn't believe in new year's resolutions and never has and that there is no better time to get something done then to start right away.

I couldn't agree with him more.
I've made a decision recently that briefly threatened to turn my world upside down if only momentarily.
It was easily the scariest decision I've ever made in my entire life.  But one that will stick.

I cannot disclose the decision just yet but have already started writing a post about it for next week.
What I can say for now is that I'm tired of waiting for tomorrow to make things better.
Tomorrow to fix something that is broken.
Tomorrow to start something new.

Why not start right away? Regardless of the risk.

Everything we do, every choice we make in life involves some sort of risk.
Either we'll lose something, change something to the point of no return, or things won't change at all and may stagnate entirely but it's still risky.

There's no point in waiting around until it's "safe" to do it, or we may end up waiting forever.
And as the saying goes, we're not promised tomorrow, so why not start today?
Right now.

I have mentally made my own list... I'd forgotten that I already started making moves over the past year.
I just had a slight pause in the road and I can already see some of the things I've started come to light.

I've taken classes, learned a lot about myself, and other people...
I've grown a lot.
I've learned to apply lessons learned in past mistakes to current situations... and while I haven't perfected the art yet, I'm getting there.

So I resumed my journey officially as of yesterday and I'm both anxious and excited as to where it's going to take me.

Stay tuned.
