Today I’m just going to share a post from my personal blog. The topic for the day was “A quote I live by”. It’s nothing grand, nothing wordy. It’s quite simple, actually.
“The trouble is, you think you have time” ~ Buddha
It’s true. You always think you have time. How many times have you said “Eh, that can wait til tomorrow” or “In a few minutes”, and put off going somewhere, or relaxing with family because work, or housework seemed more pressing? I almost did it the other day. I had an invitation to go fishing and hang out at the park with family. I almost declined, I thought that I should try and get back on top of my housework. But I didn’t. I went, and we had an awesome time, despite some rain. Don’t wait until you’re smacked in the face with a harsh reminder that you can’t count on tomorrow. Some things really shouldn’t be saved for later. (Unless it’s laundry. That can always wait.) That leads into one of my favorite quotes, which is:
“Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you right. Forget about the one’s who don’t. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it.” ~Unknown
So…yeah. Get out there and go fishing with your family today. The housework can wait til tomorrow.
