I was speaking to a friend today who never goes on vacation. Ever. In fact she never leaves NYC unless she is going for work. She has lived there for her whole life.
I asked her how she was doing…and she said. “Fabulous. I am going to Rome & Croatia today.” I started laughing….”Really…ok…wow…I am so proud of you…you will love Rome. You have to live your life. Sometimes we leave things that we want to do for “later”. And then “later” we are too old and too feeble. Or life gets in the way and later never comes. No one wants to do Rome in a walker.”
She said to me…”Yes. Finally I get. My later is not tomorrow anymore. My Later is Right Now.”…
I thought that was brilliant.
My Later is Right Now.
Not when I have time. Not when it is more convenient. Not next year. Right. Now. I have officially adopted this policy as of today.
