If Not Now Then When?

“If you want to know your past, look into your present conditions. If you want to know your future, look into your present actions.” – Padmasambhava

“Everything we have done up to this point in our lives has brought us EXACTLY to where we are now in our lives, and everything we do from this point on will take us to the next place in our lives: Every move forward or backwards commits us to some place in the future. If you want to be someplace different in the future than where you are right now, begin by moving in that direction today.” – Adisa Ajamu

Today is the perfect day to take action.

Whatever you’ve been putting off for later, for whatever reason, take a small step today towards that goal. Don’t wait until Monday to start eating healthier. Don’t wait any longer to make that phone call to a long lost friend. Don’t wait until you’re all stressed out to polish off that resume and look for a new job.

Don’t wait to start saving for that rainy day fund. Don’t wait to take that class you’ve been interested in taking for some time now.

Don’t wait. Do it today. Start immediately moving in the direction of your dreams.

Take action. Stop talking about what you want to do, what you’re going to do, and do it.


Next year this time, you’ll be glad you did.

    Beautiful, but if you’re a procrastinator, it’s harder. I am sure I can do it, but my ideas are still so complex for me to deal with. I have many different routes I could take. In other words, I am a dreamer still full of life and still a believer that Love ❤️ conquers All. God is still working on me !!

      Hi Aunt Mary! It starts with what we call ourselves and what we believe we can do. You know I procrastinate too, but I view it as a bad habit that I need to break. I think to do something that we’ve been dreaming of doing takes intention and follow through. Set your mind to accomplish it and you will be surprised what you can do! Love ya!
