What Are You Waiting For?

“Dare to be wise; begin! He who postpones the hour of living rightly is like the rustic who waits for the river to run out before he crosses.” – Horace

When you really think about it, what are we waiting for? The right time? That river keeps on flowing by and never runs out. We run out.

Of time… opportunities lost watching it all run by. So then what of this hour? What shall it launch?

Begin. Do you feel the urgency of time? Do what must be done.

Start where you are, use what you have, do what you can” – Arthur Ashe

Easy for me to say, right? Who am I to challenge you? Make no mistake, I’m dipping a toe in that water myself. For I have my own chasms to cross. The only way across is by putting action where words are and getting to it.

I like a good challenge. Do you? What can you accomplish, see, or become in ten days? Focus on living rightly in each moment, getting across whatever your river is. From today to March 4th and written about right here on March 5th. Comment on that post if you’ve taken the challenge yourself. What are we waiting for? Hurry! For it’s already slipping away.

  1. I’d love to participate here, but you know my list is too long, and a complicated plan in motion to make life as meaningful as possible for us. However, this post certainly gets me thinking about how we are thoroughly motivated to live life to its fullest. We set goals and make lists of smaller tasks to achieve “that big one”. As we go about our daily tasks (and checking off each little box with satisfaction), I can’t help but notice how most people don’t do this, and then complain about how cruel the world is. And hoping that your words will inspire them to do otherwise. Cheers to you for your relentless efforts! If only more would read your words.
