How many of times have you used the phrase, “it’s not the right time”?
How many times have you passed up a moment in wait for a better moment?
Aren’t we always waiting for something to happen or someone to come around?
People spend their lives waiting for good things to happen, much-awaited rewards, paybacks, that one love to come true. People wait for happiness, success, “fruits of their good deeds”. People wait for God, God will make things right.
Aren’t we the ones who make or break our lives?
When will we learn to make the best of what we have, at this very moment, rather than wait to do things later? There are so many times we wish later on that we had grasped an opportunity, made use of a moment, confessed feelings, taken action. So many times we realize after passing up such moments that we may never get the chance to do those things, maybe we’ll never get a better opportunity. Maybe like a pirate, that was our one and only shot?
Why not do things now to save us from the regret later? How bad can it get? If it has to work out then it will now too. At the most things won’t work out. One can always try again maybe on the other occasion that we were waiting for.
So why not leave thinking about “how things could have been had I done something then”. Move ahead of the “I wish I had” or “If only”. Stars won’t align to make things happen because it is us who have to get things done. In the end, if we can do things later, we can do those things now.
