Here’s a reminder of something you’ve always known but may have forgotten.
Because you never know how much time you have left . . .
Because waiting until later to orchestrate your life is futile . . .
Because, at the end of life, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the things you did do . . .
Because the only people who are truly afraid of dying are those who feel they have never lived . . .
For these reasons and many more, do not wait for life to come to you. Instead, decide right now that you will go to it. Starting today, live each day in such a way that you will never have to say “if only.” Don’t get to the end still wondering. As John Greenleaf Whittier put it, “The saddest words of tongue or pen are these four words: It might have been.”
