Don’t put off living! BE in the Here and Now!

don't put off living!

“One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.”

~ Dale Carnegie

Are you celebrating being alive today? Do you stop to Smell the ROSES? — or better yet, grow your own? It does not really matter if you are still in school, somewhere trying to find your place in the world, or even being well into your career… Most of us postpone happiness, waiting until that elusive time down the road. Maybe its when you are more financially stable, or you could be waiting until retirement or something else. Stop stalling. Now is the time to celebrate YOU. Go exploring with your family, kids or grandkids. Stop finding excuses.

We are all unique individuals, with our own hopes and dreams, but most of us are alike in that we want the same things:

  • to love and be loved
  • to be safe and comfortable
  • to be special and needed
  • to have excitement and variety, rather than boredom
  • to learn and grow
  • to have a purpose, to contribute something back

If this sounds like you, don’t put off living any longer! Find your roses! Share your light — the secret to success can be found in Giving. Show your love, make someone else feel special, seek and share ways to bring excitement to others, be open and seek learning. Make these part of your daily activities, and you find those blessings being returned to you many times over. And your roses will be blooming!
