Time is ticking

If you knew the exact moment in time that your life on this earth would end, would you be doing things tomorrow in a different way?

Would you get out there and try and accomplish all those things you have always wanted to do but never started? Would you say sorry to someone that you had upset in the past? Would you pay someone a compliment because it doesn’t cost anything to be nice?

Would you go for that walk along the beach that you keep saying you will do but sit on the computer or watch tv instead? Would you help a frail old lady cross the road? Would you eat healthier to make you live a longer life? Would you go out of your way to finally do things that make you happy, and thoroughly enjoy them as those things happen?

Do them, all of those things that you keep putting on hold thinking that there’s plenty of time and you will ‘do that next year, next week or tomorrow.’ You can put things on hold, but time keeps on ticking. Our time on this earth is getting shorter by the second, use that time and fill it with all those things you have always wanted to get done and all those things you now aspire to do. – The Nutrition Guru

  1. How very true and Ive learned its never too late to start. Don’t let others destroy your dreams! It brings to mind the late Nadine Stair of Louisville, Kentucky, who at the age of 85 years old was asked what she would do if she had her life to live over again.

    “I’d make more mistakes next time,” she said. “I’d relax. I would limber up. I would be sillier than I have been on this trip. I would take fewer things seriously. I would take more chances. I would climb more mountains and swim more rivers. I would eat more ice cream and less beans. I would perhaps have more actual troubles, but I’d have fewer imaginary ones.

    “You see, I’m one of those people who live sensibly and sanely hour after hour, day after day. Oh, I’ve had my moments, and if I had to do it over again, I’d have more of them. In fact, I’d try to have nothing else. Just moments, one after another, instead of living so many years ahead of each day. I’ve been one of those persons who never goes anywhere without a thermometer, a hot water bottle, and a raincoat. If I had to do it over again, I would travel lighter than I have.

    “If I had my life to live over, I would start barefoot earlier in the spring and stay that way later in the fall. I would go to more dances. I would ride more merry-go-rounds and I would pick more daisies.”

    Carpe diem guys!
