To change one’s life: Start immediately. Do it flamboyantly. No exceptions. ~William James
No matter how hard you work today, you might die tomorrow. You might never reach retirement.
No matter how much you save, you might never have enough to cover that unexpected expense. Or, you might never get a chance to spend your fortune.
No matter how well you plan, your world might be rocked by an earthquake.
No matter what people tell you, there is no magic formula. No get-rich-quick scheme.
You might win the lottery. Or not. I don’t know.
The path of life is never certain.
That much I am certain about.
Your memories are certain, too. Each second in the past is something you can speak to, learn from, smile about.
Which makes me wonder …
When is the perfect time to have another baby?
When will you be secure enough to quit your day job?
When will you have enough money saved?
When will you be set to travel the world?
When is the best time to go back to school?
When you think about how nothing is certain, the best response to “when” could be: Right now.
A fantastic way to support my writing is by sharing my posts. Thank you so much!
