No time like…

There is no perfect time.

There’s really not. For whatever you want to do in your life, there is no perfect time. There is only now.

I have completely lost track of how many times in my life (hell, how many times this month) I have looked at the weather report and thought “Ugh, I could run outside if only it wasn’t so hotcoldwindyrainysunnycloudy.”

Or how many times I’ve looked at my calendar and said, “Well, surely if I do this onemorething I will have time to work out later.”

SURPRISE NEWS FLASH! It will always be too hotcoldwindyrainysunnycloudy. Later never comes. There is only now.

Conditions might not be ideal. But there is no such thing as “Perfect Conditions”. They simply don’t exist. So, if you keep waiting for them, you are going to be waiting for a loooooong time.

And it is in the waiting that the damage is done.

So don’t wait. Do it now. There is no other time for what you want to do.

Whatever you want to do, do it. Start now.

Begin doing what you want to do now.  We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand, and melting like a snowflake.  ~Marie Ray

    Point well taken. Even if you can’t do the workout you were originally planning, you can always do something.

      Right. It’s something I have to remind myself of every day.

      Exactly. The only thing stopping you is YOU.

    So very true!! It’s so easy to find an excuse not to do something and timing and conditions, etc… are never perfect for everything. I have to tell myself to JUST DO IT.
