“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.
