Time is going to pass anyway. Why not be happy?
People talk about what they’d like to do, what they like to be. You see that glint of excitement in their eyes as they imagine this future, improved, accomplished self. But sadly that reverie is often short-lived. Fears and doubts come into mind. Their speech turns from that of hopeful actions to hedges, equivocations, and excuses.
When queried, you hear a lot of phrases that amount to ‘the real world got in the way.’
Admit it. You’ve done it. I know I’ve done this more times than I’d care to admit!
There is nothing more real than the passage of time. It’s going to occur whether you like it or not. Why indulge that future state you see? Why not make a plan to conquer all of your obstacles and pursue that dream? You only get this one chance at life; why not make it a happy one?
