There is a drawer in which I stack everything I want to do someday when the time is right. The drawer is already overflowing and yet the time is never right for any of the things accumulated there. There is always a hurdle. Always an inconvenience. ALWAYS something better and more important to do. There are always repercussions to take under consideration. The mood is always wrong and the muse always absent.
Life goes by and the right time is never found. We do what we must routinely do and keep on accumulating plans for when the time is right. We may lose track of our plans, but enjoy collecting them nevertheless.
Today I decided to announce: “IT IS TIME”. Today I open the drawer and pick one crumpled paper, written long ago with sparkling eyes and joyous heart, I open it and do whatever it sends me to do. Today it is time.
For this week’s inspiration prompt I invite you to join me and decide today it is time to pick up one dream from that drawer and make it happen.
In the back of that drawer lays the oldest piece of paper. In it is written “Be nicer to people. Be nicer to myself. Be nicer”. It isn’t easy to be nice when life is closing in on you. But today lets start with that piece of paper…
There are fine things which you mean to do some day, under what you think will be more favorable circumstances. But the only time that is surely yours is the present, hence this is the time to speak the word of appreciation and sympathy, to do the generous deed, to forgive the fault of a thoughtless friend, to sacrifice self a little more for others. Today is the day in which to express your noblest qualities of mind and heart, to do at least one worthy thing which you have long postponed, and to use your God-given abilities for the enrichment of someone less fortunate. Today you can make your life significant and worthwhile.
