What would happen to us, to the world if there was actually an hour of the day called 'Later'? What would that mean to all of us when we say 'I'll do it later', I will start that diet 'later', I'll start to exercise 'later'. If we stopped to think about what later means to us would we postpone things so frequently? Later creates guilt, which in turn creates stress, which turns to illness, and on the cycle goes! Whatever we put off to do 'later' always sits there tauting us, making us feel worse as every day passes, the more we put these things off, for days, weeks, months, years, even decades, the worse our situation or state of mind becomes. Then what usually happens is one day you wake up and realise that you have no more later's, time has run out, the option of changing is gone, blown forever. I know that I am a great one for saying that I will do it tomorrow, sometimes it is little things like ironing, at other times it is more important things that appear a little too much to take on or complete, so they get pushed into the tomorrow pile, and there they stay, until it feels like a monumental task just to look at what has to be done let alone do it. The solution is simple, do it NOW. Take care of all aspects of your life now, look after you NOW, because there is no better time than NOW. Live for today in every single way, make the best of every day, be the best person you can be everyday.
