If not now, when?38
Going through life I always had the attitude of “when things slow down, I will do X”. Or “once this project is done, I can finally do Y”. Guess what, things never slow down and after the project is done there is another project waiting. Which means that finding the space to live more mindfully, creating some space for myself never really happens.
And this is not just me, I see it with colleagues, friends and family as well.
I am clearly a slow learner here, as I remembered a colleague telling me already 10+ years ago, that the only way to create more space in our lives is to make changes NOW. To NOT wait for this great moment in time when we think there might be an opportunity for change.
I am slowly starting to learn that now is all we have.
So if not now, when?
