What Are You Waiting For?

Read the title again.  Like seriously, answer the question.  What are you waiting for?  If you read my recent post, you already know that I felt like death was all around me this year.  I have been repeatedly reminded that time is finite.  While I believe that there is something after this life (heaven, eternity, hanging out with Jesus, etc.), our time on this planet has term limits.  So why do we waste so much time when we know that our time on Earth is limited?

I. Can't. Do. It.  Like I literally can't waste another minute of it.  Time is precious and I don't want to waste a single moment.  I don't want to wait until I lose 20 pounds to live.  I can't wait until I have the perfect plan before I launch a new business.  I must stop procrastinating on achieving my dreams.  I.  Can't.  Wait.  Anymore.  

So, the mantra for 2018 is simple:  Blessed are those who do...  So get up and get started doing.  Write the book.  Take the swim.  Cut the hair.  Launch the business.  Record the podcast.  Travel fearlessly.  Make love.  Dance wildly.  Drink too much.  Laugh to loud.  Give the speech.  Make love.  Talk to God.  Paint the wall.  Get the tattoo.  Do it all.  Do it now.  This life will be over in the blink of an eye.  Live a life that makes you smile when you reflect upon it.  Life a life that makes you meet God smiling saying "Thank You for life and the opportunity to live.  It was hard, but it was WONDERFUL."
