I ran across this photo while curating images for my husband’s company. Not sure who to give ultimate photo credit to, since the image was on the “free license” area of an Internet search, but major props to whoever it belongs to. Excellent quote, gorgeous photo.
What struck me about the quote is just how much it STRUCK me, you know? Sheesh – sipping coffee, minding my own business when WHAM – preached to by an Internet image like it’s Sunday morning up in here.
THIS IS YOUR LIFE
Yep – yep it is. As much as I usually want someone else to make the hard decisions for me, it is me who is in charge here.
YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR IT
Responsible means a level of maturity is required here…dang it.
YOU WILL NOT LIVE FOREVER
Well that’s disappointing. I mean – I knew that all along but seeing it in writing is a kick in the pants.
Annnnnnd here’s where it gets me. DO NOT WAIT. Not even for a minute because a minute may be all you get! And even if I have 40, 50, 60more years on this earth, what will my 1 month older self think when she looks back at who I am in this moment? Will she be glad that I chose to be disciplined and make the most of life, or frustrated that I frittered (haha doughnut reference) away the time I had?
If you needed a little motivation today – LET THIS BE IT.
