Every day is a new opportunity and it is up to us whether we use it or waste it. It took me 24 years to realize that “now” is much better than “tomorrow”. Why? Because when I finally come to my “tomorrow”, I don’t have time or opportunity. And I understood that we all had a habit to forget. When I look back, I realize that I could do much more than what I actually did. I could take more from my life and convert any situation I was in, into much more fun and enjoyable time. I have learnt a very important lesson: “tomorrow doesn’t work” and as soon as I understood that “tomorrow” is more like an illusion or excuse, the faster I started living more fulfilled life.
Let’s say you have been thinking about something for long time. For example, travelling. But you didn’t do it because you were tired at the end of the day/week, you had obligations you couldn’t leave, you realized that trips are pricy or that you didn’t have enough time to do it. So you postponed it. It does not make you happy, but you have so many “but” that don’t let you do it. What about the weekend? What about to grab your backpack and escape? I bet you can do that: to discover a new place, to get more emotions and new experience. It shouldn’t be that hard to do, right? And it does not require you to spend a lot of money and time. Trust me, that 2 days will give you enough impressions for months. Let’s say you are tired of the routine and want to try something new, but you are afraid to fail or you are not sure if you like it. I am saying “try it, try it anyway”. I used to be a chubby kid, who didn’t actually have a habit of spending time exercising.
One day I decided, “Today is the day” and went running. I lost weight and became more healthy and organized than I have ever been. This year I tried yoga and I am absolutely happy that I pushed myself to try it. I travel to Mexico quite often and just imagine how many things are new for me every time I am there. I try something new when I am in Mexico City but no matter what it is, I always give it a try. I was so afraid to speak Spanish to native Spanish speakers, because I thought that people wouldn’t understand me; I didn’t want to look stupid or show the lack of knowledge. Although I pushed myself to do it, because I was absolutely in love with this language and I didn’t want to lose the opportunity to improve it.
Bring all your plans from “tomorrowland” and try to do them today – one little by little. We are capable of much more than we thing and we are much stronger than we think. Do not do it for somebody else, do it for you. It is your life, your time and your decisions. You live today and there is no better time than right now. Tomorrow all you are going to have is -1 day. So does “tomorrow” work for you?
