The single most important thing you can do for yourself today

Here’s the problem…

You think you have time.

You don’t.

You think you’ll do it all later.

You won’t.

You think, one of these days, everything you’ve ever wanted is just going to fall in your lap, like it was always meant to be there… like you deserve it… like you’re just waiting to cash in on a world of good karma coming your way.

You’re wrong.

Even worse?

You’re setting yourself up for heartbreak.

For disappointment.

For anger.

And envy.

And disdain.

But it’s not your fault.

You’ve been nurtured to behave that way.

To wait.

To put it all off.

To sit with fingers crossed waiting on a brighter day.

For some reason, you’ve subscribed to the idea that your best days are ahead of you — that they’re just waiting around the next corner.

But what if today you lose you health?

Or your best friend?

Or your partner?

Or your sight?

Or your love?

You’d spend the rest of your life wishing you could be back to where you are today — with what you have right here and right now.

Take advantage of this moment and make the most of it.

Do everything you’ve ever wanted to do now.

Express the love you have for others today.

And stop wasting your time waiting for something that may never happen.

If you don’t, you might find that your best days have fallen behind you — that they passed you by without even noticing.

Don’t let that happen.

Live and love fully today.

Halt right there!
