Act Now, Without Delay

Simone de Beuavoir once said “don’t gamble on the future, act now, without delay.”

That quote got me thinking…

We spend so much time planning, anticipating, etc. for what is not promised. ⁣⁣

⁣⁣It may sound grim, but all of this can literally be taken away in the blink of an eye. ⁣⁣

⁣⁣Each day we have is an absolute privilege. ⁣⁣

⁣⁣By understanding that each day is not promised, and is a privilege, it empowers us to start LIVING for now. ⁣⁣

⁣⁣While it is always beneficial to be cognizant of the future, STOP putting things off that can bring joy…today.⁣⁣

⁣⁣If you’ve been wanting to try that new restaurant downtown, go ahead and make a reservation. ⁣⁣

⁣⁣If you’ve been wanting to go to the beach all Summer, pack a bag and make your way. ⁣⁣

⁣⁣If you miss playing tennis, grab your racket and head to the nearest court. ⁣⁣

⁣⁣If you love or appreciate someone,⁣ let them know. ⁣

⁣The thing is, if we keep putting off things that can bring us joy…we may NEVER get the chance to do them. ⁣⁣

⁣⁣Keep that in mind today, and each day you are blessed to have. ⁣⁣

⁣⁣
