If I were my own best friend I would tell myself…
Now is better than soon.
***It is springtime and I have flowers and bulbs on the brain. There are so many ways to illustrate this thought, but I figured this is seasonal. “Now” is about doing it today – not procrastinating or getting bogged down in planning or making excuses or taking your time. It is not the same as “soon” – which means sometime in the future. “Now” means action and usually means taking a chance.
It makes me think of bulbs finally blossoming. “Now” means there are flowers and something to appreciate. “Soon” means there is something brewing underground that may or may not make an appearance.
Obviously planning and preparation are important and everything in life cannot be “now” – but there is a point where “soon” has outlived it’s usefulness and “now or never” is the reality. So you jump, or the opportunity that is “now” will disappear.
Are you stuck at “soon”??? Have you made the leap to “now”?? I am trying to be more “now” and less “soon” but the planner in me makes it hard, that and the fear of the unknown! That’s also what makes it fun and worth taking the risk. Aaaah, the double-edged swords!
