Try Something New for Yourself...

“Life is not lost by dying; life is lost minute by minute, day by dragging day, in all the thousand small uncaring ways.” ~ Stephen Vincent Benet 

What’s needed for a new relationship with time and life? 

Intention -- Get really clear about what you want. 

Desire -- How much do you want something new for yourself? Know your motivation. Desire brings the energy for change. 

Belief and/or willingness to trust -- You can have what you want. If belief is lacking, can you believe in the possibility that you can find a new way of living? 

Perseverance, discipline -- It takes time and effort to change attitudes and habits. We can’t expect a new life overnight. 

Acceptance, both of what’s happening now and of who we are. Until we honestly and openly accept our present situation, we cannot change it. 

A willingness to try something new. 

“It is so easy to waste our lives: our days, our hours, our minutes. ... It is so easy to exist instead of live. Unless you know there is a clock ticking. So many of us changed our lives when we heard a biological clock and decided to have kids. But that sound is a murmur compared to the tolling of mortality.” ~ Anna Quindlen 

Don't wait for time to start running out before you feel a sense of urgency to do what you've always wanted to do in life...  Don't waste another day waiting... Do what you love now!
