Now is the time

Enjoy life now. This is not a rehearsal.

 Did you ever catch yourself saying “one of these days”? If you did (be honest), you are a confounded procrastinator.  Pro-cras-ti-na-tor… (sounds like a Russian insult).
You would rather do later, tomorrow, next week, next year, what you should be doing NOW.

“Procrastination is like masturbation. At first it feels good, but in the end, you’re only screwing yourself.”Author unknown

Time flies. It is an old saying but it is still highly relevant today. Unbeknownst to you, time goes by at the speed of a galloping horse.

I booked a cruise in 2018 thinking that I had plenty of time to prepare, but it is now banging on my door and I am still in my pajamas. It has become a matter of days and I better start panicking… I usually leave this occupation to my wife, but this time I have to morph into “action man”

Don’t wait for Father Time to shake your tree. Do now what you have always wanted to do. Like my friend Daniel, jump (repeatedly) with a parachute. Ride a motorcycle, go bungee jumping, tango in Argentina, get married, get divorced…

Don’t wait. Do it now. The future is promised to no one.

I am prompted to emphasize this because recently a member of our pétanque family had a cardiac mishap that could have been fatal. A quick trip to emergency prevented a tragedy, but it is a warning shot across the bow.

You need to listen to your body and see a plumber immediately when your pipes get clogged.

The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse can be on you in a minute. Unlike our mythical WALL, they are real and they don’t take no for an answer.

Moral of the story

Enjoy yourself while you can for there is no guaranteed tomorrow.
