What’s Wrong With Right Now?

Tomorrow.

Next week.

By spring.

Weekend after next.

Pretty soon.

Later.

So often we put off our lives until those magical days or times appear: We will be happy tomorrow. Pretty soon things will be better. By spring, we’ll have more resources. We’ll take off a few days weekend after next. Later, we can stop worrying and start living.

What is wrong with right now?

It is always right now, today, this moment. That magical perfect time will never appear. We must create it, and the only time to create it is right now.

What have you been putting off? A chore? Spending time with a loved one? Indulging in some comfort? Writing that story? My challenge: do it now, because later will never get here. Time will, always and forever, be Right Now.
