It’s never too late…until it IS

Have you ever been in conversation with someone and the topic of something you have wanted to do for the longest comes up and they say “oh it’s never too late”?

We spend so much time pushing things aside for later that we don’t realize the time we’ve wasted.  We always seem to think we have tomorrow, but sometimes we really don’t. Time waits for no one. We need to learn to invest our time wisely.

Procrastination is a terrible trait.

We as adults and especially as parents need to learn to remove this from our daily lives. We need to stop saying things like “oh I will do that tomorrow or things will get better in time or that can wait till later”.

Planning is wonderful; dreams are great but these things mean nothing without execution.

Today is the start of a New Year. Go out and start the ball rolling before it is TOO LATE.

  4. Yes, I made that determination at the beginning of 2014, hoping to force me out of my procrastination. I'm working on writing a book, getting back in front of people to sing and most of all, consistently writing for and updating my blog. I don't want to get to the point when I wake up and feel like I've wasted my life. From being more active to being a better wife and mother, I want my life to matter. Thanks for the reminder and linking up with Turn it Up Tuesdays.

Feel free to disagree and express it if you so wish but again always with respect to others. I am sure we can find ways to express our opinions without a shouting match or bullying.

I reserve the right to delete any content left on my blog that I deem not respectful to myself or others. Again we all have freedom of expression but this is my blog.
