An observation worth noting … and pondering:
The tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon,
but that we wait so long to begin it.
How many of us can look back on the course of our lives and shake our heads at how many fruitless pursuits were undertaken to find that elusive measure of success?
That’s a chase we begin early … and often. When we decide that success and its trappings are available if we follow the paths and pursuits of others, we’re sure to spend a lot of time and efforts following the paths and pursuits of others, but rarely will we experience the deep conviction that those objectives are ours as well.
It’s never too late to look within and take the time to decide what contribution you can make, what purpose you can honor, with the unique blend of tools and talents you carry. It’s never too soon to ponder what those might be, and how best to move forward to honor them to the best of your abilities.
Don’t wait to begin the Process. Trust what you feel, what you know, what drives you. The first step is the only one to concern yourself with, so commit to that. Life Will Answer
