Years ago I stayed in the beautiful Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Hyde Park, London. In my room the stereo was turned on. As I walked in, the radio station personality was posing this question to his audience… “What would you do if you only had one day to change your life?”
Yesterday, I asked my friend this question, and her response was…”I think that is the problem, we always feel like we have one day.” hmmm… she is right, I thought! It is true, that every day we have the opportunity to start again-Thank God! But, isn’t it a luxury to think that we have forever?
I found this question written in a ten year old journal of mine, along with my answer; I want to travel and write my story. It hit me like a ton of bricks smacking me in the head. I had let ten years go by, and did not realize it. How lucky am I to still have another day! Seeing that ten year old statement did something else (after I had calmed down from the hysteria of the years missed on a life that I wanted), It made me feel a little bit more sane. It reconfirmed for me that my desire to write and travel is just not a passing whim, but is something that is deep seated within me.
My point is that I messed up. I wrote down what I wanted to do. I visualized what I wanted my life to look like, but I did not write down or do what I could do that day, or everyday after to change my life. I didn’t do anything to make it happen. In fact, I forgot all about it…
So what can you do today, big or small, that will lead you towards your perfect life?
Just a thought!
Having a perfect life, in a perfect world…
